Sand Dancer and other Poems
“I was learning to fly”
Dance released me from the floor and helped me to play with gravity, and the space around – to become whatever I liked, to change time, seasons, my age, my size. Soon I could hear music and rhythm everywhere. In my own breathing and heart-beat, everything was rising and falling, speeding up and slowing down. Nothing was ever still.
During this process, on a deeper level of consciousness, a certain philosophy had taken root in my life. I had been taught to understand that I was part of something enormous, outside of my self and that nothing begins and nothing ends. That all of life is moving and our relationship to all living things on earth is how we sense eternity.
Dancer, teacher, actor and writer, Wendy Wright has been writing poetry for many years and this is a selection of her work centred around her life in the theatre.
Born a week before World War II was declared and having spent a good portion of her life in east London, Wendy has been dancing and acting since she was a small child at boarding school. A teatcher who taught both traditional Primary School and children with Special Needs, Wendy has been writing poetry, teaching guides and even a novel over the years.
Now resident in southern France, Wendy is concentrating on her poetry and art.
