Spirit Chasing (recycled)

Chasing yesterday..
trying to catch a Butterfly
trying to catch a Rainbow
trying to catch a me…

(They whisper.. “Within darkness comes light”)

Spirit Chasing

Zombie walking
Light murmur
Skin and Bones
Frail wrists
Limp Fingers
Cracking knees and bent neck

Looking around corners and out windows
Searching…
Trying to catch something..
Trying to catch a Butterfly
Trying to catch a Rainbow
Trying to catch a me

Remembering the days of wonder and youth with childlike excitement
Remembering the laughs within laughs

It used to be so funny to hear me giggle, it would keep me going an extra 15 mins..
just the sounds of my highs and lows..the genuine laughter

I used to dance all by myself
wrap my arms around my hips and dance until I grew tired or shy
Like water and air, I’d move. I’d ripple. I’d swirl.
I would pray within rhythm and chant within breaths
I would let my spirits memories teach my body; the ceremonial dances of yesteryear..
When I twirled, I’d sense the Ancestors clapping their hands and bowing their heads in agreement
I would dance until tears fell cold on dry cheeks

It seems so long ago..when a smile would light my way and the sun would beam bright inside me, for all to see.

I yearn to see the tomorrow in my pupils
I desperately want to remember the girl that I used to be; the woman that I am
I’m trying to chase the dream, before I forget

I’m chasing yesterday..
trying to catch a Butterfly
trying to catch a Rainbow
trying to catch a me.
