Running Up That Hill

A short poem inspired by an amazing song!

Thanks to an appearance on a Netflix series (The name escapes me -Stranger Things perhaps?) this wonderful song from Kate Bush, experienced a tremendous renaissance in recent years.

On the Zen channel on SiriusXM, they feature an other-worldly version that instantly reduces me to tears. That version, linked to below, promoted me to create this poem.


What could be more beautiful than this moment?

How could my spirit be more alive?


It lifts up

out of my body

reaching for divine knowledge

real truth

true perception


It wraps its finger around the cosmos

dancing, swaying, gyrating, vibrating

to ever higher frequencies

greater amplitudes

escalating in intensity

with every move

every look

every touch
