Burning Giraffe

A couple of weeks back Bart and me did another dance and drawing session (see March post Shared Imagination). Using Salvador Dali's Burning Giraffe as initial inspiration, we entered a process where dance leads drawing, drawing leads dance, and so on. Here is my favourite of Bart's images combined with words that I wrote to express my inner journey.

Pulled into belly drawer 
back burning

ashes
orbiting the black earth
expansion … sucked in

gnarled ivy out of control

lightness anchored by claws

feather skirt 
covering oceans

punctured lungs
spreading gold dust.
