The feeling of blissful anticipation is indescribable when one steps onto the stage to dance, leaving behind all mundane concepts and concerns for a brief, timeless spell to simply express and share all the joy and wonder availed to us beyond the veil of the material world.
It had never occurred to me that the written word could also have a similar effect. Aside from several love poems and channeled writings, I had not, until recently, been aware of the fact that the medium of writing is also a springboard for sharing; where one’s thoughts, dreams, aspirations and soul-intentions can find a foothold in reality… not until I inadvertently stumbled upon a veritable community of poets on MySpace. To know that I could allow my thoughts to take shape in forms not traditionally acceptable is gratifying, to say the least. With the writing of each of these poemshapes in Sea Moon, I feel as though I am stepping, like the dancer-at-heart that I am, and perhaps we all are, into a welcoming forum of word-wielders. I ‘speak my truth’ here in the knowledge that many of the like-minded will welcome my organically honed wordshapes (call it poetry or not) and resonate with them. It was shortly after my return to Byron Bay, Australia that I was introduced to Lane Badger, an extraordinarily perceptive and receptive woman, who is also a creative publisher. So-called ‘synchronicity’ is always, to me, an indicator that I am moving in the right direction, one whose ultimate goal is to touch people on as wide a scale as possible by simply conveying ideas that might strike melodious chords.
I believe in the transformative power of all forms of art. If ‘writing’ be an art form, then let us step lightly into this sanctioned art space, as both writer and reader (as ‘per-former’ and ‘audience’ ) and, respecting fully its ever-changing boundaries, allow the symbolism, “the beauty of words” as M. Marceau put it, to penetrate our receptive orbs, and have their essence filter through and transform our whole being.
It is with a deep-seated desire to touch and to share that I offer you my words, as structured here, in the hope that even a single resonate chord will be struck, perhaps to reverberate. Beyond hope, I Trust – and Know – that we are ready for fresh waves of color to wash over us – to cleanse, nourish and transform us so that we might all actually BE the dancers-at-heart that we truly are. En-Joy!
