Freeing My Spirit

A response to Know Thyself, Heal Thyself’s February Writing Challenge

Cartwheels in the Park; Photo of the Author

When is my spirit free?
When I’m lost in my paints,
When I’m lost in my words,
When I’m lost in child-like abandon,
dancing like a fool,
or doing cartwheels in the park.
