Blooming Into Wonder

Here is the second poem I wrote at the Dance Camp poetry workshop...

Blooming into Wonder

Looking back now I have to laugh
at the broken bones of my past.
Self-righteous woman
now dissolved into curiosity

Blooming into wonder

I wonder who is that shadow
that stares back at me from the mirror?

I hear her cry
but it is now an echo
no longer real

I laugh even as I cry

It’s all so funny – how can you not be laughing?

Shakura Cathryn
Wisdom begins in wonder.” ~Socrates
"Laughter is the most inexpensive and the most effective wonder drug. Laughter is a universal medicine." ~Bertrand Russell
