wizard we

we are not cursed with pain

we are blessed with the chance

to learn to dance the dance

of the healer

to turn off suffering

wiith knowledge, we once knew

methods ancient, tried, true

plying the craft

  2. This is lovely, Annette. I read it through a couple of times to imbibe its strength and learn the dance. It seems that little twinges of pain skip through my body. Never staying very long in one place, but teasing me making me think I can treat one little part and there would be no pain. It’s not much, just a spark like static electricity that lets you know that age is creeping up. It is like a dance. LOL
