Hi everyone, I have lurked here every so often. I love to write, but I haven't written in a really long time (like fifteen years) and I would like to begin again. I have a little poem I wrote, and would love some feedback. I feel really rusty.

I bask in the heavenly music
inviting me into its dance.
I move ... lacking only in technique
that which would allow me to free,
what is seeking a way out of my soul.

Be free little bird,
who has given up beating her wings,
after a lifetime of flying into glass windows.
Lying almost dead for so long.

For I hear the music for the first time
in what seems an eternity.
I had forgotten how beautiful it is.
Even more beautiful now that I am determined to dance.

No more worries of whether people will like my dance,
or whether they dance better than me.
Free to dance MY SONG.
Free to sing and write MY SONG.

My song unsung for too long..

Thanks for reading.
