One day I'll run

One day I’ll run,
Run on and be free,

I, who stalked a star
From a den of shadows

I, who fell and fell again,
But was never content
To be ‘less than’,

I, who screamed and wept,
And sang my songs to
Untamed skies

One day I’ll run,
Run into the arms of music,

And wild harmony will carry
All that’s broken in me,
A painted offering
To the doorstep of the Beloved

And with soft eyes,
I will step out
onto the back of a white wind
And run,

Run home to myself,
Where winged rhythm
calls my name,

And love weaves an azure dream,
In the shadowed footprints of
freedom

Thanks very much Holly,

Your words always mean a great deal to me.

I was a little frustrated as my lack of technological savvy meant that i couldnt format this piece the way I'd have liked to...

Ideally Its meant to be read in the context of a piece of music, and the lines 'centred' but i couldnt work out how to do either here ;) lol

I've posted it on my blog the way I imagined it....

Much love, M

Hey Maithri!

There's no need to be concerned about your level of 'savvyness' ... it's just that right now the software doesn't offer us a way to center text. I'm going to look for a workaround and will keep you posted.

(The poem is absolutely beautiful, btw. ;-)

All my best to you!

Ron

PS: I noticed you posted an Australian You Tube video ... in order to make the video show up in the forum all you have to do is change the 'au' in the address to 'www'. ;-)

How these words are formatted is irrelevant dearest Maithri :)
The love and the message shines through anyway :)

Maithri... such kindred soul you are... always unknowingly peeking into mine! ... or simply made from the same dna of soulship journeying in parallel emotion, different detail... no doubt in my mind! Such a beautiful piece and so perfect in imagery. Love to you!

Oh my, precious beloved Maithri!! This is achingly beautiful, the music, the wolves, the words a wonderful combination. I think I will come back often to read and to listen and to watch.

YOU ARE AMAZING!

Like Luckintheshadows I have goosebumps from the emotion.

You are the spirit of freedom's pen.

Love and hugs.
