Behind You (And sharing my new dance๐Ÿ’•)

It seems I've deviated from your gaze,
Hiding safely inside April's coy dews,
Longing for a crystal world of my own.

Smiles, tears, dancing all my life,
dreams as the north wind blows restlessly, 
to bleed, to rest in penance ever willingly,
and to wake at dawn still, holding a fragment 
of life's lamenting song in billowing cold.     
But do not worry, my friend,
Wherever you go,
I am walking right behind you...

Updates And Sharing My New Dance:

This spring has been a very busy season for me since I’m working on a few dance projects at the same time on tight deadlines. Nevertheless, I am happy to share a new dance of mine below. It was inspire by a beautiful Indian song and I tested it out as a preliminary work for a site dance project๐Ÿ’•. Hope you enjoy! ๐Ÿฅ‚๐Ÿฅณ Have a blessed Springtime๐ŸŒธ, dear friends!

    1. Wow, Every line of your comment makes me vibrant already (to tell the truth, lol)! I was in the mood of dancing with fast beats and feeling myself a bit of Bollywood dancer in spirit ๐Ÿ™‚

      Your beautiful wishes are warmly received! How have you been lately, Nelson?

        I love that ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ. I’m in awe of how you beautifully dance to different genres and paces of music ๐Ÿฅณ. I felt the same as I watched you ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿฝ.

        I have been okay Annabel ๐Ÿ™‡๐Ÿพโ€โ™‚๏ธ. About to move again in a few days (4hr drive) so I have been stocking up on coffee ๐Ÿ˜‚ and preparing. Other than that, I’m just taking it one sunny day at a time ๐Ÿ™‚๐ŸŒป

      3. ๐Ÿ˜„yes most days are sunny, though during your summer it’ll be “winter” here. At that point i like to joke for people to send me pictures of their sunny days ๐Ÿ˜‚. Do you have a season you enjoy most btw ?

        Thank you very much Annabel!
        ๐Ÿ˜‚Yes it does (as I reach for a cup just now)

      4. I actually like all reasons except winter, haha. It’s bit ironical since I was born a winter girl. Long and gloomy winter is depressing for me to endure. That’s why I want t get out of Philly ASAP, lol.

        You are in a better place with mostly sunny days and I am jealous, haha…. Enjoy sunshine, drink coffee, and write more poetry, Nelson!
