Favorite Quote:
"Life should be lived on the edge of life. You have to exercise rebellion: to refuse to tape yourself to rules, to refuse your own success, to refuse to repeat yourself, to see every day, every year, every idea as a true challenge - and then you are going to live your life on a tightrope." -Philippe Petit

The ground,
Grass tips laced with frost,
The footprints lightly etched.
Softly, the wind whispers
It’s lullaby.
And the dancer,
Spinning a twirl of the lucid,
The painted pirouette.
Delicately she spins her
Red ribbon
Through her dance.
And the chill of the gale,
Alongside the chill of her soul,
Flakes the rhythmic steps into
Something broken.
The imprinted feet
Now sunk deep in.
And pale goes the dancer,
Frozen goes the dance.
And onto the ground,
Grass tips laced with frost,
Goes the red ribbon.
