Dancing Alone


I knew this on a high red cliff arroyo
Still almost a child
Singing to the wind
Mind dancing and whirling
Exploding with ideas and emotions
… Arms tucked for the roll
Jumping the twenty with ease
Hit the slight slope rolling
Down deep in the soft red sand
Coming up with gritty eyes and smiles
Alone
Mom might have killed me for it
Almost killing myself
The incredible rush of power
Knowing what ‘ALIVE’ means
Dancing by myself in the sand
Long dry creek beds
Rattler Trails
Dance with myself I danced then
While the hooves
Of the black iron horses pounded
In the distance in time to my feet
Laughing alone
Dancing alone
