the blood red dawn that danced on my smoldering fingertips by 

the decade had dawned
as the room turned blood red
and i danced until the
stars fell from the sky
and shattered like glass
at my feet
and i continued moving
my body to the music as
the shards of the last
10 years cut deeply into
the wounded memories at my feet
and the surge of the
heavy hitting rock n’ roll
swayed in my spirit
and a newness washed over me
as the past years were
drained and a new
dawn radiated into being
at the tips of my
smoldering fingertips

I am a dreamer, artist, and mother. I dance in the rain, spend too much time reading books, and live for my family. I am a gypsy, poet, musician, and artist. But most of all, I am a butterfly fairy. Come dream with me.
