from structure to flow.
From baskets waiting to be woven
to the whirl of the weaving.

From bird cage to bird,
to flight.

From fairy tale to fairy,
dancer to dance.

From spinning dervish, 
and seeking

to dandelion seed
floating aimlessly
(make a wish)

to jelly fish,
in the light of its own making.

Never underestimate
the power of a twirly skirt.
