your wings
lifting you above all
that ever bound you here

Crow

sentinel of change
fly beside my freed spirit
orientate my soul

On Ballet / Football

With grace, strength, agility

running, leaping, stretching

a staged performance

coached to perform

Our instrument is our body

The ball, decisions

freedom to play

without fear

~

n.b. Quoting Carlos Acosta, Birmingham Royal Ballet and Tony Cliss, The Posh and The Alex. Football is unscripted drama, an art in itself.

She dropped her shroud

Stepped clear, stood and proudly proclaimed

It is me. I am here!

Without a care in the world

Forget the mirror
