Waltzing beyond the walls!


A visual verse

Wrote this impromptu poem after seeing this clip shared by my dear friend Efi from

yesterday on my post Creativity: A matter of approach

Watch these amazing and spirited performers daring to dance like so…

“>Waltzing On the Walls

Waltzing beyond the Walls
Art lives in betwixt and beyond the walls of assumption
A dance happens in the letting go and in the gumption
Take away the fear of falling down and failure.
Take away the fear of doubts and see what the spirit can endure…

Soul dances leading through the spirit and the body follows
Unshackling conventions and freeing of limitations that hollows
Defying the elements and daring to dance
Shaping new frontiers without losing form or stance

Spirit of life I bow to thee🙏
You are beyond all decree.🤲

      • Wonderful!!! Thank you Savvy!!!

        Everybody knows that the dice are loaded
        Everybody rolls with their fingers crossed
        Everybody knows that the war is over
        Everybody knows the good guys lost
        Everybody knows the fight was fixed
        The poor stay poor, the rich get rich
        That’s how it goes
        Everybody knows
        Everybody knows that the boat is leaking
        Everybody knows that the captain lied
        Everybody got this broken feeling
        Like their father or their dog just died

        Everybody talking to their pockets
        Everybody wants a box of chocolates
        And a long stem rose
        Everybody knows

        Everybody knows that you love me baby
        Everybody knows that you really do
        Everybody knows that you’ve been faithful
        Ah give or take a night or two
        Everybody knows you’ve been discreet
        But there were so many people you just had to meet
        Without your clothes
        And everybody knows

        Everybody knows, everybody knows
        That’s how it goes
        Everybody knows

        Everybody knows, everybody knows
        That’s how it goes
        Everybody knows

        And everybody knows that it’s now or never
        Everybody knows that it’s me or you
        And everybody knows that you live forever
        Ah when you’ve done a line or two
        Everybody knows the deal is rotten
        Old Black Joe’s still pickin’ cotton
        For your ribbons and bows
        And everybody knows

        And everybody knows that the Plague is coming
        Everybody knows that it’s moving fast
        Everybody knows that the naked man and woman
        Are just a shining artifact of the past
        Everybody knows the scene is dead
        But there’s gonna be a meter on your bed
        That will disclose
        What everybody knows

        And everybody knows that you’re in trouble
        Everybody knows what you’ve been through
        From the bloody cross on top of Calvary
        To the beach of Malibu
        Everybody knows it’s coming apart
        Take one last look at this Sacred Heart
        Before it blows
        And everybody knows
