Coming Round

we’re coming round
eyes opening
blinking in this dawn’s half light
as it dances through our eyelashes

seeing more than we’ve ever dared
drinking it in
letting it move us
in ways we’ve never been moved

One of the invitations in Dance Awake is to dance with eyes open or closed. Eyes open generally brings more awareness to the space around us, whereas eyes closed to our internal space. There is a lot of power in dancing between these two states and the practice of moving between them changes the texture of our dance, if we’re aware. I find it helpful to consciously open or close my eyes if I’m being distracted by internal or external forces that are keeping me from being fully present.
