Ascend~OctPoWriMo Day 17

Whirling Dervishes
Whirling Dervishes

The prayer is my music and my muse

Caught in the rhapsody I must move

Proclaiming with my body my love for Thee

~

Looks wild but my movements are directed

Carrying me to a sacred place of reunion

The prayer is my music and my muse

~

My arms are free to exude my devotion

My legs carry me closer to my Beloved

Caught in the rhapsody I must move

~

The breeze is a reminder of the Friend

The sounds of my garments increase

Proclaiming with my body my love for Thee

❤ ❤ ❤

The Prompt:

“Dance, when you’re broken open. Dance, if you’ve torn the bandage off. Dance in the middle of the fighting. Dance in your blood. Dance when you’re perfectly free.” ― Rumi

“What stage are you at in the above quote? Are you dancing? Write for ten minutes asking yourself the previous questions.”~ Morgan Dragonwillow

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.

  1. This is truly beautiful and so spiritual! Rumi would be so proud!! I used to kid around when I went out dancing a lot about 15 years ago, that I wanted to die on a dance floor, dying happy. It is interesting you quoted Wayne Dyer. On my first workshop I gave on Self-Esteem in the early 90`s I used his book “Pulling your own Strings” for ideas.
