Shall we Dance---Everlasting dance together

As he came...
Bent down towards me
He took me by the hand...
Led me out to the dance floor..
As the music played...
he held me close
his heart beating next to mine
warmth surounded us...
soft... melodies played
I said... I am scared
For I never done this before...
He said.. no worrys..
I am here... my dear
then he whispered into my ear
Singing melodies of lyrics of song
As the music played
We swayed to the music
as held me close unto him...
his strong arms held me tight
dancing on through the night..
gentle as he... guided me
across the dance floor...
Sweeetness music played
More Beautiful then ever before...
Precious moments...

Then I woke up...
Twas just a dream
of many dreams..
But then again
was it???

Tis be soon...
As time shall be...
When moment comes
I shall dance the dance..
as He guides me 
Across the sky
Then between the stars...
To the other side.. 
Beyond... Glorious Love Eternity..
Sweeet Divine Precious moments..
Shall forever be...
Music Plays.. Melodies unto our King
Harmony of all souls
Whom belong to Him
Come... to Jesus
Lets Dance the Dance of Glorious Love Together...
Sweeetness of the Souls..

There is a place

There is a place you can go that is full of only love and Warmth .
you will be surrounded by a light that shines from the Heavens ,
Sprinkles of Silver and Gold. 

This place is filled with brilliant colors of Purple , vibrant Gold, all colors.
not one Color is less significant then another ,
for every color is equal here .

This place is surrounded by the beauty of different Flowers.
All flowers have significance here . No one Flower is better then another .
All Flowers are equal here .

It is important you know , you can cry here , and should cry as often as needed .
For  the tears will cleanse your Soul and give the Flowers water to grow.
No  one Tear is insignificant here , every tear has value and not one is better then another .

 money holds no value ,  Where you live , what you own,  has no significance here .

You will be surrounded by a beautiful light that shines from the Heavens .
A shining warm light will encircle you and allow nothing to hurt you . 
Hate will be shed at the door light a old jacket of no use. 

There is a place of beauty and  Worth.
This place will not be found on Earth .
It is a place where no one person is better then another .

Picture Perfect

(Gentle Summer Rain)

Listen to:
light pouring silver gray
enriched thoughts fall from the sky
complete path towards-
Blissful, Delighting Peace
small ceremonial rain dance.
------------

Gentle therapeutic rain
on a warm summer day.
falls of heaven on my skin 
lovely healing memory
smiling tears 
embracing promise land
means of escaping
utopia in a cloud
Solace-
light mist paints the Earth

"Drizzling summer rays"
Swimming in sunshine, rain.

A STEP HALF MADE

As lightening shone and thunder blew
I danced the dance that dancers do

They danced it back and asked if I
Would mind them dancing through the night

I thought no harm could come of this
Besides, such company I’ve missed

Thus, on we danced so unaware
That torrent rains beyond compare

Fell down in floods on higher ground
And like a wall came crashing down

Then somewhere in a step half made
The dance I danced was washed away

Now all that’s left for you to see:
Remains of the catastrophe

Oh, hopefully from this you’ll know
Don’t ever dance when thunder blows

Sometimes I Feel Beautiful

Sometimes I Feel Beautiful
Driving along thinking about what I’m about to do brings a smile to my face. Without a doubt my hair and nails make a big difference in the way I feel about myself! When I look pretty; I feel pretty.
Today my nails will be done in pink and white, oh yes, perfect they shall be. Nothing short of looking delicate and refined I tell myself. I am so excited; the anticipation brings joy into my heart and laughter to my lips! 
My hair appointment is closing in. High lights and shaping adds a playful and fun demeanor. Beautiful is how it’s going to look and beautiful is how I’ll feel. I almost need to pinch myself for I wonder is this really happening to me! Tears sting my eyes and giggles flow forth. Yes; this is my life and this is happening to me!
Thinking of my new makeup and how youthful I’m going to look brings joy into this heart of mine. I can hardly wait to put it on as the excitement builds; I dance around and giggle. I feel so beautiful thinking how perfect I’ll look with everything finished.
At times I tell myself, “I know he loves me, I can tell”. The glowing in his eyes seems to sparkle with love and passion. My Heart beats a little faster as excitement and wonder fills my entire being! Yes, this is how it should always be, a life filled with joy and laughter.
Finding ways to look beautiful helps me feel beautiful. It’s this that causes me to giggle and dance about. The unbridled excitement loosened, flowing through my veins fills me with love and wanting. Tomorrow just maybe this joy will add new meaning and direction causing me to continue feeling beautiful..
                                                                                           Debbie Knapp

Groundswell Girl - Named by JB

Enter a storybook tale
Where I can be 
The heroine you hail
Lucid dreams of soft reflection
A touch heated with lust and desired protection
A breathe a gasp as we succeed 
Join the fairytale with me
Valiant night within dark eyes
the right movement and I make them shine
like moonlight on the steamy hot spring
care to follow for a little dip with me
Trailing like the water at my fingertips
Grasp me around my hips
As close as the breeze on my skin 
Whisper lies as I let you in 
Lips mumbling up my thighs
bare heart exposed to the sky 
fire burning in my veins
Am I a mistress of this lust or simply a slave
Trembling with desire
Take me till we've lost count of the hours
enter this storybook tale
Where I can be the heroine you hail

I dance

7 may 2012 4:50 PM



I dance in the sunlight 
I dance in the rain

I dance when I'm happy
I dance when there's pain

Because it frees my soul
And it lets me go
to a higher place
to a higher praise
With You ohhhh with You
that's right

I dance to remember
I dance to forget

I dance in a dream land
I dance in reality 

Because I dance for You 
And You take me there 
to that higher place 
to that higher praise.....with You


Life on Purpose Live it before you lose it! ©2009

Dancing among the Stars

Dancing among the Stars
As night soon be falling
I Hear...  calling
Whispering out my name

As I shall go out... In the eve 
Dressed up in my evening gown
As my Man comes... for me 
He is all dressed up in his blues 
As we go unto the ball
Gone out on the town after all

Dancing among the Stars
Romance under the moon light
Out dancing on town
Dancing within the night Twilights

Just until midnight
For when the clock strikes
Then I must leave
Quickly… For I must go.. away
That way no-one knows 
Whom I am…

Each week end
Dancing tis so much fun
Same ole thing
Hard to believe
Tis really... 
just a dream

But.. I shall dance among the Stars 
Singing praises unto my king
My Lord.. my savior whom died for me
I shall rave.. and Dance for Jesus
I shall raise my hands and swing
I shall twirl about and dance
As my long hair fly’s in air.. within the wind
As I twirl around for Jesus again.. and again
And Dance always for Jesus..
For He the Only One
Then I shall.. dance.. the dance for Jesus
Raising and Praising unto my king
For everything.. His Glory Brings

Praises be to God... Always.. 
Come dance for Jesus
Dance among the stars

Dance through Dark days

We danced like this
A fit of madness,  twirling around
round as the beat drowned

  drowned out sounds of outside melodies
unwanted tunes, I danced with you
black dress of luxurious lace swept low
Encasing legs perfectly porcelain
Fanciful footwork-I led you-you led me
 In this symbiotic synchronicity

The light cast down illuminate
  a striking angle of your face
smiling, a twirl, hands in mine
around the floor, intertwined
hands in mine

A room looked on...no notice, no matter
Removed from their critique
 judgement, opinion.......all words of others
They mingled into sounds of nothing
  noise lost in our self-made song
Eyes locked to speak all unsaid
I kissed your pouted lips instead
our steps never un synched.......

We waltzed on as the night made dawn
The floor beneath was then sand
The ceiling now sky...now you and I
The makers of noise, a memory to forget
  Just an inner existence of two

Each day we dance this way
Making song and venue all the same
Taking turns at leading step
For which of us hears the music
Will lead the other in a dance through it.....

The Victory Dance

To play as if today
Is your only chance.
Some say, “It’s just a game.”
Have they done the Victory Dance?

When hard-earned Victory
Was finally at hand,
Have they felt the glory
Raining down from the stands?

To do or not to do….
No one wants to hear, “We tried.”
Effort and dedication will be rewarded… 
And ‘Sooner Magic’ is on your side. 

Yes, to fall short is still an option;
But much better to succeed.
Heroes are made and remembered
Only by their deeds.

So, just go out and win.
Give your all to each and every chance.
Persevere and achieve…

And do the Victory Dance.

Incineration of Love God Madan Cupid 13


Incineration of Love God Madan (Cupid) 13
Originally written in Hindi by my late father Dr. Amar Nath Kapoor
1899 to 1994. The work was written in Hindi somewhere around 1965-70.

Editing and English version by Ravindra K Kapoor.

Hindi Title  ‘Madan Dahan’



Peacocks began to show their colors,
In their lascivious dance of passion,
And Cuckoo’s song began to resound,
Creating disturbance in Shiva’s penance. 

Rati his wife of unique beauty,  too,
Began her wonderful dance and song,
In tune,  with the spring in full bloom,
Disturbing Shanker* in deep meditation.

Under the grab of such flowing charms,
Cupid began to hypnotize the Yogi*,
The cover was of the  bewitching charms,
To Break his penance in command.

Penguin's Dream


Penguin's  Dream 

The Penguins were busy,
In their joyous dance,
Like teenagers, who get lost,
In their first love and talks. 01

Love was shining brightly,
In their lustrous lovely eyes,
And the Joy of love was splashing,
In every steps of their dance. 02

Amazed by their beauty in grace,
I felt a rhythm of joy in their mood,
As if,  I too was in tune with them,
With a pinch of love, sprouting in me. 03

Age, in those beautiful moments,
Had no longer remain a barrier for me,
Waves of joy we're touching the sky, and
My mind was in dance with those Penguins. 04

Those beautiful birds were moving like Kings & Queens,
Without fearing for yesterday and tomorrows,
Penguins were looking towards their soul mates with love,
Enjoying completely the moments, they were breathing. 05

They all were still in muttering mood,
In their joyful dance of love and singing,
Penguins continued their alluring dance,
Away, quite far away from me. 06

Suddenly a big cold splash gave me a jolt,
And I found, I was only dreaming Penguins,
Unknowingly I too was floating on waves,
With some of my early age Penguin dreams. 07

Grandma Was Dancing

She was a tappin' to the tunes...
of those Mississippi blues...
step-pin' out, in her white...
Pat-en-leather shoes,

We were a watchin' her a prancin',
all through the kitchen, dancin'...
for she was so...hot & sizzlin'...
hummin' to those Mississippi tunes...

Funny curlers too, upon...
her head...for a new... Hair dew,...
she was, a swirlin'-in that bakers apron,
when her head...star-ted a bobbin' to...
those Mississip-pi blues,

'Pots were a knockin'...
Grandma a sockin' down all she brews,
while that kettle there was whistlin',
in har-mo-ny, with them good ole...
good ole...mississip-pi moves,'

That floor there, was a bouncin'
holdin' hands we were a jumpin',
an-a hoppin' In the kitchen, to those...
                  sounds ...
Where Grandma's feet were a stompin',
In her new...New-white-sexy-pat-en-
leather-shoes...

Elayne will dance


Elayne will dance; she holds a long white rope, 
above our heads - in air aloneness spreads, 
cold rain pours on damp ground - the circus' dead, 
remote's the emptiness - devoid the scope.

Elayne will dance! High on the ropes upheld;
through acrobatics, apt, her act perfects,
she lifts to skies, her bold routine projects
the tears of wind that blows will be withheld.

Inside the air, ropes thrum upon the mast,
we both had lived ten years before this sound
we laughed there hung, in void, above the ground
the rags now wave to gallivant miscast.

Inside the winds she posed; admired Elayne
will dance; the ropes keep thrumming on the mast;
will hang in void; beguiled, unearthly trust,
spectators watch Elayne's hung wraith in strain.

"Address my love when nimbus rain on Earth
I'll dance with you in fields of heather, 
because your soul beholds my eyes forever
and stars are embers of a longing hearth."

A skyward streamlet to expend in space, 
admired Elayne departs in splendid glow;
rags wave, the thin mistle kisses my brow , 
- she followed the drops paths to upwards trace.

The Glass Goddess

All around me
Great cities made of sand.
Green sky scrapers poke through the ground 
To thrive in life’s strict conditions
And melt away with the tide…

Great houses made of cards
Form lines, and tightrope walk existence,
Knowing that any moment, the wrong brick may fall
And buckle our world to its knees
As Mother Earth shouts Jenga! from the sidelines.

So while were here
We dance with the Glass Goddess 
Poised miles above reality,
Leaping over the heavens on our domino stilts-

We floor it in the sky
Living death in the fast lane, 
Seizing the day
Because any moment 
We could disappear 
Into

You've got to love your life

You’ve got to love your life.

I’m drifting through my life
As I climb those rocky trails
The only place I want to be is now
The Spring comes, me just sitting here
As the grass grows by itself
I never did want too much, anyhow.

Can’t worry about your burdens
One has to travel on
The past can’t do no damage, it be gone
And the future, well there’s no one knows
No matter what they do
You cannot stop those hands from moving on.

You’ve got to love your life
That’s the only way to go
There ain’t no going back to what’s been done
Cause life was made for loving
The song you sing is yours
You’re a one off soul, you be the only one.

You have to live your story
No matter where it goes
No matter what the hard knocks you might gain
The road might lead to nowhere
Yet dance it anyhow
When life stand still, then it be lived in vain.

carousel in roundel


The carousel round goes to circle feasts
The scent of dusk is solitude's  primrose
- beloved her stare with light shall fade in mists
- the carousel round goes. 

And the enfolding of the silence slows
forsooth advances her response sole kissed
betimes the corteges of night depose.

Disporting round trajectories persist
their merriment of altered times disclose;
- Two loving forms in raindrops dance amidst,
- the carousel round goes.

Zoo - Just to Amuse You

One fine day, I planned a visit to zoo
Alone landed amidst the fauna left so few
Treaded merrily on greenery, singing my heart out
Whilst a lion’s scary roar made me shout

‘Ah! Another visitor’, said the lion annoyingly
‘Why should we entertain you?’ said he fumingly
‘What’s the point in wasting your energy and mine?
Making us do the funny acts, do they seem so divine?’

Hearing those words I dared
Reduced the distance, still scared
Said I, ‘Stop fuming King of Jungle, watch out for your age,
Hadn’t I come to visit you, wouldn’t you be bored in your cage?’

‘The answer dwells in your question, silly girl
You humans have no heart of pearls,
The so-called king of jungle imprisoned in cage
Heartthrob of millions I was, at my early age’

‘To meet my family, hope it doesn’t get too late
I need to eagerly meet ‘em all, my cubs, my mate
I still feel them, they are waiting for me
Oh girl! Be kind enough to set me free.’


I couldn’t have done that with all my might
Turned my way, delighted by a peacock’s sight
The multihued beauty was sheltered in a metallic cage
Awe! Gloomy this beauty looked, in distress and rage

‘What is wrong? Do you want to fly?’
It turned around and looked straight at the sky
‘Show me those vibrant feathers, the fan-like crest
Guests would adore seeing you dance at your best’

‘I dance just for my love, my love for rain,
Cool breeze no more likes crossing my lane
Why do I open my feathers without my mate’s presence?
Just to amuse you, I shall do; confined in this fence’

Dumbstruck, I decided to turn my way
Walked ahead in quest of animals happy and gay
There it was! A crazy monkey, flirting and making its choice
Mimicking others and playing around, hear its evil noise

Bouncing, bouncing and dancing, dancing
It ruled as if dungeon’s dominant king
Wow! You look so happy; what’s the reason?
‘Girl! No more fun for you, ‘coz free I’ll be from this prison’.

Two giant men came forward and opened the door
Good Lord! It’ll be free, unkind humans is just animal’s lore!
Monkey screeched, ‘Meet me soon in the nearby forest
Where I meet my pals, play, eat, have fun and rest’

 Happy to see the monkey’s joy, I walked ahead
Across the bushes, saw a van, a huge van in red
Giant men carried animals and dumped in the van
Shocked I was to see the sight and reckoned their plan

Why was my monkey friend inside, for what purpose?
It was clear as I read the van’s name, ‘The Great Royal Circus!’

Pricked

Your  love pricks me like a rose each thorn grows but no one knows Your so full of 
it as it shows so carry on now go on, go. I'm fed up with the phony and  i'm 
through with the tears, you couldn't pay me all your money to make up for those 
years. Someone help me I feel faint how could I think he was such a saint and 
worst of all I let me fall into a spiral down below. A magic called love carried 
by the dove of someone I use to know.

The cosmic dance

This cosmic dance

I don’t really care
About what life’s about
I don’t really give a damn
I don’t believe, and I don’t doubt
I don’t care about tomorrow
Though I’ll do what is right
It’s all part of a big old story
A dream within the night

When heart is filled with laughter
And soul is filled with peace
And everything is flowing
With the power of sweet release
Then nothing matters, really matters
Though you’ll do your best for folk
You know with every pore of you
That life’s a cosmic joke

A dance, a dance, a lovely dance
It be when eyes are clear
It’s just a tale amidst the many
And you must hold it dear
And swim within its melody
As you dance this cosmic dance
Experiencing with your soul
This lovely game of chance.

THE LACK OF LUCK

Hours morning, hours evening,
With hope, cling; without hope, cling
Man without shape gets anything,
Yours for pay be nothing,
If you lay on all thing.

The universe is a univerasal daughter,
Each man a piece,
Setting her your way be like the hen in the slaughter,
Visiting hours without learn,
Till others learnt from hers case.

Generation without axioms is
Like the wind. Anything it blows,
Our house it did and burnt our forests,
Lastly barren it went up the skies,
The woman to dance she chose,

She is now dancing. Our waists are broken,
Hers not yet. A connoisseur she's become.
One fetched water in haste. To dance cannot,
Already tired. Done mistakes two:
Bring water soiled, In hurry hurried, now tired.

It be conventional wisdom to eat your nuts one by one,
My professor words quote, good unwanted is 1,
Yet all want record number 1. Who the man
That will reconcile wisdom and application?
Luck be not except ruling out uncertainty to pursue certainty.

Luck be not without crucifixion of big dreams,
For the liberty of slim realities,
Like the party in the neighbour's house,
While mourning be in ours,
Take no jealousy.

I took a piece of meat yonder,
What benefited it me?
The love in a foreign marriage cannot save our hell.
Hail hail hail,
Hail again.

The morning breaks
A monotonous rhythm: black back to back,
The eagle flies east, west the vulture adventures.
One dines fresh, fellow tours the grave.

Do something though nothing,
Cast lot, get one,
A city is built unit-wise not package so,
The tune of our merry, the being of chance,
Sorry to be a victim.

Spirit Of The Unicorn and The One

This poem is dedicated to PD on her birthday October 7th…
Unicorns are magical and no one but the one chosen may ride them…
And you must be magical, too. So PD I have arranged this just for you.
If you feel the rhythm you will feel the ride.

The one accepts the unicorn and the unicorn accepts the one.
No one rides a unicorn… It’s a dance in poise and symmetry as one.
Thump, Thump…Thump, Thump
The power is felt in the movement as the unicorn stretches out its gate.
The muscles move beneath the one with power awaiting to escape.
Thump, Thump…Thump, Thump
The fluidity of the gate is matched by the fluidity of the one.
The nostrils flair in both… The dance has just begun…
Thump, Thump…Thump, Thump
If they do not work together… They will not work at all.
The unicorns’ mane like the ones’, is held tight in the flowing winds thrall.
Thump, Thump…Thump, Thump
With each step they take… A balance must be struck.
For every step they take… Their intent must be as one.
Thump, Thump…Thump, Thump
The spirit of the unicorn must merge with the spirit of the one.
Together they merge in a symbiotic relationship as old as the unicorn.
Thump, Thump…Thump, Thump
Feel the movement… Feel the power… Feel each muscle as it moves.
Feel each breeze unfold… Feel your hearts and souls as they meld as one.
Thump, Thump…Thump, Thump
Point to counter point… The one doesn’t own the unicorn or the unicorn the one.
What looks so easy is not a simple thing as they travel forth as one.
Thump, Thump…Thump, Thump
The connection is tightly woven. This spirit of Unicorn and one.
Thump, Thump…Thump, Thump
And with each ride together they will meld again as one…
Thump, Thump…Thump, Thump
Now don’t be frightened, as this world you begin to escape.
For the unicorn is unfurling its wings and with the one is about to soar…
Swish, Swish… Swish, Swish
Just lean across its neck, and stare up at the skies…
For the stars shall be your present tonight… On such a beautiful night…
Swish, Swish… Swish, Swish

This Is The Love

Stand up and shake;
Feel the rhythm in your heart.
Ignite those pants;
We get up and dance.
God on our mind,
Eternity in our souls;
Feel the chills of those bones.
It's the hope.
Open those closed doors:
Into Heaven we go,
Welcomed and forgiven.
Here is the love;
Let's dance!

The voice of addiction


''Welcome to Hell," the sign should've read,
Reaching your destination-its all in your head!
Thank you, for your invention.
I'l. Never  leave your side.
We'll become very acquainted.
My child, there's no where to hide
"Last call for the train heading to Nowhere Fast,"
The memories you create will forever last.
I bet you feel silly
Falling right into my lap.
I'm a master at temptation
You'll cant escape my trap.
Don't pray to god he left your side
Just take my hand and let us collide.
I will teach you how to play the game.
How does it feel to dance with the Devil?
Did you realize yet that we are the same?
Are you honestly going to try and beat me?
A useless battle if you want to know.
Go ahead and give it a shot
 I'm in the mood for a good show.
I'll always be your dirty little secret.
I won't disappear over time.
I guess, you think your special.
But I won't leave without a fight 
Ill do my best to bring you back,
I'll keep you up at night.
When ever you will want me 
You know I'm always near
I will remain your nightmare,
I'm still your biggest fear.
A vicious cycle, that’s what I am
I tend to only speak the truth
I'm Satin's weapon of destruction.
The silent killer of your youth.

"the voice of victory"
One year sober, the world seemed dim and black. 
But I made a promise and I'm not going back.
I whipped my eyes, there is no reason to cry.
The time has come to say goodbye.
You brought me joy, but mostly strife.
Then you started to take over my life.
It felt so natural I didn't think twice.
But your a king at manipulation and you played it nice.
It's been 2 years I guess that you lied.
You said there is no way out, but I called your bluff.
I reslize now that enough was enough.
The path I have chosen led me the wrong way. 
No one thought I will service, but here I stand today.
The memories of your sweet rush are no longer a threat.
I have done many things in life but you were the biggest regret.
I know temptation oh so well.
I know your everywhere, waiting to lead me to hell.
Save your self the trouble and don't even Try.
I locked the gates to hell when I said goodbye.
But I hear this voice inside my head.
I know I burried you yet you are not dead.
The fantasy world you provided was nothing but a lie.
Your a constant reminder that life can change in a blink of an eye.
I have been clean for too long to go back to my old ways.
I like the new me and this is how it must stay.
Life may get hard and I might get off track. 
But don't count on me, I am not coming back.
I am happy with my life,been though its not the same.
Drugs took so much from me but I beat the devil at his game.
This is a voices that reside in my head.
So I desided to share them with the world instead.
Life may get hard and things will fall apart.
But remember tomorrow is always a new start.
There is many ways to deal and cope.
And believe me neither one of them is connected to dope.
Don't take the easy way out, it will will destroy who you are.
Don't chose drugs as your escape, they won't get you to far.
I share because I know 
that once your in, you can't let go.
They are every where and the each have a name.
I was lucky enough to defeat this game.
But not all off us are strong enough. 
Not all of us can call the bluff.
Never dance with the devil, is the advice I will give.
Because god has a plan for everyone, so you must always believe.
When things hit rock bottom and life fills with fear.
Remember that god didn't bring you this far to just leave u here.

We Need to dance On Mountain Tops

We need to dance on Mountain tops
Flying, soaring, way way up high into the sky
We need to grasp at every single rainbow
And laughing slide down them for the ride
Not to live in unhappiness, doubt and insecurity
We need to believe in all we see and be a shiny light
A help out of the darkness to be a beacon light
Life has such cruelties we must not add to them
Careless words, stupid thoughts, so easy to hold back
For some the road is easy, a skipping playful ride
For others torment, tragedy, a life of only strife
We need to lift the spirit to offer all we can
We need a cup overflowing, not scalding in the hand
A little thought of tenderness, a smile can make a day
A special nod, outstretched hand, a tender loving hug
Oh yes we need to dance on mountain tops
Together let us fly, let us soar way way up into the sky
To love, to give, to hope, and most certainly to dream.

Stone in your shoe

There’s a stone in your shoe! 
You smile but half smile,
You walk, but feel pain. 
You try to dance, but can’t!
You try to sing, but stammer! 
You try to shake it out, 
But that tiny little stone remains.
A never ending reminder 
That you will never dance with all you heart, 
Or laugh with all you soul, 
Or sing without your stammer. 
You will never relax in conversation 
‘Til you choose to physically remove that stone!
When then and only then...
Could you dance with all your heart, 
Laugh with all your soul, 
And sing without your stammer. 
With only the distant memory of your discomforting pain. 
Only an uncomfortable memory 
From which you can finally find your present peace and comfort.

Measuring Movements

Somewhere upon the terminator’s birth
The young lovers dance and sway
To a symphony of dawn and starlight
Undulating within newfound passions
These two naively press and discover
The zealous meaning of temperate youth

Lost within the mornings heavy rise
They run through the soft breaking crests
Crashing upon their rococo painted beaches
Living only in the ardor of today’s breath
They pay no heed to the passing of the hour
Twisted adrift the spinning of the moment

Beneath the sweated midday heat 
The aging lovers croon forlornly
Calling out to their passing adolescence
With a softening of fear in each other’s eyes
They gently slip back into the hypnotic
And dance in the divine for a moment longer

Standing in the approaching twilight
The aged lovers stand in raptures kiss
Remembering the moments of yesterdays past
No longer young but still ever vibrant
They languidly begin those heavy laboring steps
Of their life’s final dance together…

Pateince

Carnelian robes permeate dreamtime landscapes
of parchment and prayer flag.
Smiling faces walk swiftly
through corridors of ancient walls
carved from living mountains,
spinning cylindrical wheels in their wake.

Patience of a thousand, thousand years,
we wait for peace.

Eagle feathers jounce
as soft moccasins dance heartbeat
on the prairie hair of Mother Earth.
Sacred sisters hold position in jingle dress rhythms
offering prayer pipes to their men,
who burn sweet grass as they fancy dance past.

Patience of a thousand, thousand years,
we wait for peace.

Hula dancers waft sea breeze
in the heat waves of Pele’s fire.
Warrior lines pace boundary between the worlds,
as molten lands part the waters
and oasis the humble in a paradise
where lei lines encircle life.

Patience of a thousand thousand years,
we wait for peace.

Condor circles as mountains spirits speak
telling stories of forever and ever.
Ancient peoples gather in raindrop mists
to nourish the living land
and feed the collective soul
the medicine of dreams.

Patience of a thousand, thousand years,
we wait for peace.

“Imagine all the people” sound waves and ipods
park bench hosts to afternoon drummers,
as momentum gathers
inner city gardeners and beekeepers
buzzing to the cyber shifts
of “sharing all the world”.

Patience of a thousand, thousand years
we wait for peace.

last dance and remembering

Last dance and remembering…

One more year gone
Another page is turned
Looking like a yearbook photo
That has me concerned

What is there left to do
What is there left to say
If another year comes faster
Than this one went away?

Each year I take a minute
To look through a folder of mine
“Personal” is the label on the faded cover
But I wonder if there’s a sign…

Of longing to remember
All of the good times I framed
In news clippings – pictures now faded
By time that’s been claimed.

So will you dance with me?
And walk with me this one last time
Through this year of love lost and won
And then through years gone by.

After all, we may not ever
Go back home again
But there is a tiny, fleeting solace in
Taking time to remember when

The Moth and the Star

Once upon a time, in a place, not too far off,
In the dark, by the moon, there lived a family of moths.
Now, for those who don't know, a moth is like a butterfly,
but instead of vibrant colors, their wings are pale white.
Moths are known to come out and dance around fires at night,
and though it can be dangerous, they love its brilliant light!
When the sun would end its job and it was time to leave,
a family of moths would begin their late routine.
Their tradition was to dance around a yellow glowing flame,
of a streetlight, freshly lit, every eve, the family came.
-But there was one young moth who never did take part,
instead of dancing by the burning host, he preferred a star.
It seemed merely a twinkle, upon a branch of a great tree,
he felt, someday, if he could gain the strength, that star he'd reach.
Now his mother and his father scoffed and both would ask him why,
does he not join his brothers and his sisters by their side.
"Your brothers all are greatly singed, when will you take your turn?
Your sister's wings have turned to black, yet, you don't have one burn!"
Despite their scolds, despite their taunts, the little moth still aimed,
for that shining star he never knew was trillions of miles away.
He'd flap his wings, though he'd fly high, he could not ascend,
and every night, he'd fall just short and wait to try again.
But then, one day, he turned around and saw he was alone.
His entire family was gone, burned like butter on the stove.
And now that he was an old, old, moth he finally came to see,
that he, indeed, had reached his star, and it wasn't above the tree.

If You Believe

If You Believe

If you believe emotions are not just a women?s thing
If you believe a relationship is based on trust, truth and openness
If you believe intimacy is part of a sacred union 
If you believe a friendship is more than just communication

Let love guide you here
Let my eyes touch your soul
Let me be the one
Let us learn together
Let us dance in the sun

If you believe a kiss is the ingredient for passion 
If you believe holding hands is the beginning of a spiritual bond
If you believe in supporting the one you love is through a simple act of kindness
If you believe that compassion is not just through words but action

Let love guide you here
Let my eyes touch your soul
Let me be the one
Let us learn together
Let us dance in the sun

If you believe embracing your inner child helps to grow emotionally
If you believe jumping in a puddle while it?s pouring out is ok
If you believe in poetry of the heart is the intimacy of the soul
If you believe that your heart beat is the pulse to life everyday

Let love guide you here
Let my eyes touch your soul
Let me be the one
Let us learn together
Let us dance in the sun

If you believe that through your eyes you can see your lover?s soul
If you believe that intimacy is not just a sexual thing
If you believe through the act of compassion we can heal a wounded heart
If you believe in forgiveness and are not afraid to cry

Let love guide you here
Let my eyes touch your soul
Let me be the one
Let us learn together
Let us dance in the sun

If you believe in everyday blessings
If you believe in the diversity of creativity
If you believe that gods love is the universal language
If you believe in the strength a family provides and its ties

Let love guide you here
Let my eyes touch your soul
Let me be the one
Let us learn together
Let us dance in the sun

What is poetry

Poetry is music
Just words spoken and not sang
Picture the melody
Imagine the beat
You can even dance off rhythm
but be confident when you speak
Words reveal rhythmically your perception of creativity

Poetry is a place where words dance
to thoughts about the day
And the paper is where they rest
until the slam at the cafe
Then like a lion it comes in
and overpowers the beat
Placing periods in places where they shouldn't be
Betraying verbs and. cheating on metaphors with euphamisms and irony

Poetry is emotion and dance and freedom
It's a happy place for the mind and
also a spirtual medium
Poetry is art.
It's what you want it to be
So just write write write
about just about anything.

It doesn't have to rhyme....all the time
If you don't want it to
As long as it comes from the heart
No one can correct you. So Write.

SIZE

Sometimes I feel small in this world, in this vast universe
But then sometimes when I’m sitting on that bench in the park with know one around watching the leaves dance in the breeze, the air hitting my face . .   
I feel big on an imaginable scale, it reminds me of all those minuet atoms all put together to make me 

Enabling me to watch those leaves dance in the breeze!   
Enabling me to walk in that park!
Sit on that bench!

It’s easy to forget how special we are and how everything in this world is special if you look close enough. The one thing size has taught me is to think and when we think and i mean actually THINK . .  amazing things can be achieved.

Someday

I don't know who you are
I don't know where you're from
I only know I wait in dark
for you and light to come

I stand here underneath the stars
and smile and think and wonder
Are you near or are you far
will we two heal these lives asunder

will you look and feel it too
take my hand and walk with me
we'll be alone, just us two
and gaze at sky, two lovers free

will you cure my weary ails
and soothe my night-borne fears
will you be there without fail
and feel my joy, my tears

now come to me my love, my one
I somehow know you're there
come to me and hold my hand
together we'll end despair

We'll be together but not just now
for your dancing eyes I wait and pray
someday we'll kiss, and touch our brows
We'll smile from inch away

we will soon dance so close together
we who are now far apart
we will love endless, light as feather
without an end, a destined start

when I dream, old times and places
you'll laugh and hold me, satiated
when my mind makes feelings belated
I'll push on through, show feelings naked

you'll dance and laugh and lead me on
We'll go together side by side
we'll run and play in the new dawn
we'll start this life's long ride

I know your face so well my friend
I know it not at all
I'll be here in this time 'thought end
Waiting for my lover's call

Today I hit the wetland trails

Today I hit the wetland trails

Today I hit the wetland trails
I’ve not done this for a while
It’s not the same as the older days
When I used to walk for miles
My body’s getting older now
I’m easing off a bit
And yet these wetlands filled with life
I love them, I admit.

Whilst walking I got kind of high
The clouds were in the sky
As the rain was teeming down
I heard the ravens cry
As two of them flew over head
Giving out their lonely calls
There’s something about these big black birds
That be so beautiful.

Then I saw a flock of swallows
About a hundred strong
They were not singing tenderly
I heard no kind of song
But my, those birds, they seemed to dance
They whirled and twirled around
And put my mind into a trance
As I trod the grassy ground.

I walked for just an hour or two
As that rain, it soaked the earth
Oh. Walking through these wetland trails
Is a thing of so much worth
Then I went home to write some poems
To celebrate my day
And let the day just do its thing
As I went on my way.

Scars

.The survivors. Yes, that's what we call ourselves. We've lived through the terrors of life. 
Gentle hands, soft spoken, safe in his arms. Obey, and listen, and the swirling melody of 
love plays throughout the scene. And yet, this masquerade is always broken to reveal the 
truth. Words sharper than daggers explode around our ears. Bruises appear on our skin. 
We've "fallen", the clumsy females we are. We fell. A sports injury, a car crash, a freak 
accident. Freak accident of hatred. Much like the lion, quiet and stalking, and then exploding 
into a flurry of the hunt. Of the hurt. Swift blows, and blood drips from noses, tears stream 
from eyes in a silver river of desperate please, bruises decorate us in tawnys and majestic 
purples. Reminders of our "wrong doings". We need to pay for our sins. The only witness are 
the walls, and the moonbeams that dance about our dizzy heads. On the ground. Steel toes 
to the back. A crack. Fire. Pain. And then, a cool silence. The rage subsides, and apologies 
appear. "I'll never do it again" and "I lost control" replay in the back of our heads. Our deja-
vu from the previous night. Always the same. Always the pain. The survivors. Thats what we 
call ourselves. And by the dark dance of the moon against the velvet sky, as stars twinkle 
like sequins, and fade into the dawn, we pick ourselves up. New excuses. New plates to buy. 
A new alarm clock. New knives, doors, but no new hearts, stabbed until the hemmoragging 
hurts like a firestorm. Alone. We are alone. We, the Survivors, have lived not an apocalypse, 
not a plane crash, but the darkest part of our lives. Therapy can lock it away, but never 
remove the dark stain of dried blood upon our souls. Lost. We come together, and escape. 
We start anew, but are never the same. Dark dreams, paranoia haunting our shadows, and 
the jumps that come with shattered glass of the clink of dishes. Never the same, but 
stronger. What doesn't kill you is sure to leave a horrible scar, but wounds heal And while 
scars remain as a reminder of the pain endured, we are, for the better, stronger. We 
survived.

finding your rhythm

everyone has some rhythm even if it's only the beat of their heart
everyone has some rhythm given to them by the Lord our God
the flow of life, the synchronicity of how everything works as one
the stream of continuity is how God wants it to all run
yet when things get out of sequence when life's rhythm is off-line
that's when the devil has thrown a wrench into the midst of your mind

the enemy has a counter-rhythm that causes chaos to come in
but you can't allow it to intercede and lead you into a dance with sin
in Psalm 150 it says to always praise God with a rhythm of music and dance
to sing a song, to beat a drum or bang a cymbal at every chance
but don't get it twisted as all rhythm in life was created by our Lord God
and don't let false prophets tell you that it was the devil who got it started
the music of life, the rhythm of living, the simple beat of the heart
is the universal rhythm created by the one and only God
the harmony of the sun and moon, the rise and fall of the tide 
and the orbiting of the planets in space
all of it has a rhythm that God our Creator put into place

so praise God with a rhythm as if it's the one thing you need to do
praise God with a rhythm in a beat that's unique to you
and be it a talent, a gift or an anointing whatever has been placed on your heart
just use it to give praise and glory as you worship the Lord our God

so make a joyful noise, stomp your feet, play a tune or just clap your hands
dance in praise to the rhythm that's in you in the place where you now stand
and even if you can't play an instrument, sing a song or dance to a tune
let everything that has breath give God the praise that He is due
praise Him, praise Him, praise Him praise God night and day
by finding the rhythm that is in you as you praise Him in any way

Hands Awake

Hands awaken! Speak out! Answer to sacred shouts,
subterranean whispering, to stars above rooftops—
thread sunlit branches with the chattering of a thousand leaves.

If fluxes and urgencies of confusion or death
should drawn you into your self-box, I say,
remember when one constructed self-prison fell away.
However you helped this forward,
do more of the same.

Be rain-hands, weeping, steeped in earth fragrance.
Be fingers in blossom, faces turning upward,
loves innumerable, rough-cut bedazzled—
unafraid to be splayed open.

Be pocketed hands, released to the welcoming wind—
multiplying there in mid-air,
riding the four directions.

Be hands of smoke and fire, descending and ascending like ragged bird-song—
effulgent, double-charged with surprise
and now even with mock surprises.

Start at the beginning, where you are.
Don’t be satiate with loll-lolling
recede wave’s tide, retreat back and back
into yourselves, until grown utterly intellectual and lumpish!

Now, you Human Being—you come awake also!
Sweep the furnishings from table. Upend the table lawlessly.
Bring the muscular, fleshy, feminine against the masculine and muscular.
Bring the masculine to the feminine. Bring friend to enemy,
estranged neighbor to the confidant. In a dance of pressing hands,
let subtle conversation play.

Ring all the tiny bells.
Stir the King and Queen of Remembrance.

In over-arching restraint, holding back one iota, so pure notes sound—
bring sunburst, sphere and harmony.
Make your entire body a listening board
forming therein—tender shape around which love
seed unfolds infinite spaces and then…

Spring awake! All to better dreaming
where hope and faith are undashed, not this dying.

O, hear me now! Hands, every which one of you,
with every human—never again sleep,
never abandon!

the new me

The New Me. 

From today I shall only write fine poems
go to the local poetry reading club and
be adored by female fans.

Honey will drip from my lips and I will 
wear flowers in my hair and there will
be a flood of happy tears. 

In Paris I read poetry about the Roma 
people and the plight of the Palestinians, 
the silence still rings in my ears.

Dancing among the Stars

As night is falling
I Hear...  calling
Whispering out my name

As I go out... In the eve 
Dressed up in my evening gown
As my Man comes... for me 
He is all dressed up in his blues 
As we go unto the ball
Gone out on the town after all

Dancing among the Stars
Romance under the moon light
Out dancing on town
Dancing within the night Twilights

Just until midnight
For when the clock strikes
Then I must leave
Quickly… For I must go.. away
That way no-one knows 
Whom I am…

Each week end
Dancing tis so much fun
Same ole thing
Hard to believe
Tis really... 
just a dream
Or is it?
For Dreams do come True

But.. I shall dance among the Stars 
Singing Praises unto my king
My Lord.. my Savior whom died for me
I shall rave.. and Dance for Jesus
I shall raise my hands and swing
I shall twirl about and dance
As my long hair fly’s in air.. within the wind
As I twirl around for Jesus again.. and again
And Dance always for Jesus..
For He the Only One
Then I shall.. dance.. the dance for Jesus
Raising and Praising unto my king
For everything.. His Glory Brings

Praises be to God... Always.. 
Come dance for Jesus
Dance among the stars
In Our Heavenly home
Knowing now 
Tis be  shall never be alone…
Praise always be
To our everlasting king

Come to Jesus

Aesthetic and Static

The beauty is
aesthetic and
static.
When in moving,
We desire watching
the silence,
Static and beautiful
shapes.
When freeze;
The fleeting beauty
of a dance.
From silence, to the
sound of trumpets.
What we really want,
We do not know.

With Deep Regards

Oh dear, oh dear!
Smile, and see the world outside
Open your door and come to this side
Live and play with the jubilations you desrve
Don't cry! Laugh, smile and live the life with the world outside.
 
Oh dear, oh dear!
Cheer, and feel the brightness of the day
Wake up from your gloominess and absorb the ray
Bask and savor with the gleam you pour
Don't hide! Seek, reach and meet the life with the cosmos everyday.
 
Oh dear, oh dear!
Stand, and dance on the athirst field of the awaited monsoon
Spill over with the rainbow from your misted essence
Dance and drench with the mizzly ambiance
Don't Slip! Toe, walk and run - the life with all self-reliance.
 
Oh dear, oh dear!
Speak, and scream from the top of the mountain
Listen to your own voice and let go the frosted pain
Fly and swing with your colourful amity feathers
Don't cease! Roam, wonder and prosper the life with your own reveries.
 
Oh dear, oh dear!
Sing, and choir along with the twittering birds cuddling
Theme with the nature so scenic and let blossom your awaited moments
Verse and rime with the melody you charm
Don't faint! Listen, fancy and dream the life with your utmost pride.
 
Oh dear, oh dear!
Smile, cheer, stand ,speak and sing
See, feel, dance, scream and choir
Live and play, bask and savor, dance and drench, fly and swing, verse and rime
With the world outside...
Open your door - we are calling you and play your eternal life.

Shall we Dance---Everlasting dance together

As he came...
Bent down towards me
He took me by the hand...
Led me out to the dance floor..
As the music played...
he held me close
his heart beating next to mine
warmth surrounded us...
soft... melodies played
I said... I am scared
For I never done this before...
He said.. no worrys..
I am here... my dear
then he whispered into my ear
Singing melodies of lyrics of song
As the music played
We swayed to the music
as held me close unto him...
his strong arms held me tight
dancing on through the night..
gentle as he... guided me
across the dance floor...
Sweeetness music played
More Beautiful then ever before...
Precious moments...

Then I woke up...
Twas just a dream
of many dreams..
But then again
was it???

Tis be soon...
As time shall be...
When moment comes
I shall dance the dance..
as He guides me 
Across the sky
Then between the stars...
To the other side.. 
Beyond... Glorious Love Eternity..
Sweeet Divine Precious moments..
Shall forever be...
Music Plays.. Melodies unto our King
Harmony of all souls
Whom belong to Him
Come... to Jesus
Lets Dance the Dance of Glorious Love Together...
Sweeetness of the Souls..

Soul in Travail

Soul in Anguish, 
Soul in torment,
Soul in delirium, 
Soul in pain,
Soul in ecstasy, 
Soul in anxiety, 
Soul in frustration, 
Soul in disdain.

Soul in passion,
Soul in laughter,
Soul in death and 
Soul in life.
Soul in penitence,
Soul in reflection, 
Soul in love and
Soul in strife.

Oh my soul you
Keep me dancing.
I can never 
Dance alone.
I search for my 
Soul’s companion.
Who will offer?
Is there one?

Here are now my 
Suitors willing.
There is Envy,
Look at Hate,
Bitterness and 
Self-Absorption,
Pity looking 
For a date.

What of Vengeance
Narcissism,
Self-indulgence
Dressed up fine,
Pride and Guilt with
Sad Depression,
Desperation,
What a line!

I have danced with
Every suitor.
And I’ve wondered
Who is mine.
I don’t want to 
Lock into a
Partnership that
Doesn’t shine.

All of these have
Looked attractive.
Yet they weaken 
On the spins!
Where is one that
Lasts for ever?
I will only
Look at him.

I need one who
Will not fail me,
Leave me when the
Going’s tough,
One who’s strong and
Knows the dance steps.
Treading on my 
Toes is rough!

Something deep
Within me tells me
Suitors there are
More than enough,
I must search the 
Highest mountain
For the one whose
Name is Truth.

Mr.Truth will 
Undergird my 
Weakness, lift 
My spirits high.
Warm my coldness,
Light my darkness,
Hold my trust as 
He draws nigh.
.

He will lead me
Without falter
To a banquet 
Richly spread.
I will follow
Every dance step
Waiting for the
Day we wed.

Then for ever
All those suitors
And their lies will
Disappear.
There will only 
Be the glory
Of beloved 
Jesus here.

THE GYPSIES DANCE

Moonlight’s mystical creatures,
Hidden under sacred vials,
 Enchantment.
Ancient specters cast deceptions,
 Romantic spells,
Captivating beauty’s illusions array,
 Most fair. 
On lookers raised voices, cheer
 Nimble feet,
Pulses acceleration encourages,
 Faster pace.
Tambourines keep time with,
 There exquisite mistresses, 
As gypsies rhythm hits fever, 
Pitch gazes remain fixed.
 In reckless frenzy cares, are tossed,
 Unto the four winds distraction.
Dresses swirl, slashing against,
 Wild attractions surrender,
Swaying shifts orchestrate, 
Imaginations indulgence.
Maidens tiptoe in hearts tender,
 Perfection,
Bathed in star dusts brilliance.
Magical beings beguiling, 
Shimmering figures,
Heavenly bodies, in motions,
 Seductive dance.
Blazing flames ignite torrents,
 Desires yielding.
Passions spiritual release, under,
 Night’s lunar glow.
Coins quicksilver melts, beneath,
 Sensual bare feet.
Fallen angels collapse, breathless,
 Exhausted in pleasures sheer,
 Radiance. 
Camp fires flickering embers,
 Quicken amongst twilight’s,
 Vibrant rays. 
Leaving remnants residue, behind,
 In golden memories reflections.

guzzling phantoms

at times
i frolick in blue bonnet and mint,
then sling demons into innocent winds
but mostly its a lifeless swim,
in construction site pools
 the shadow of silence
if i dance i dance with fools
(fools that look like me).

your mind is maze of peculiar- unique
riding the vapour of a brilliant wind,
like an eagle skipping from peak to peak
dipping its wings in ponds of pristine,
you know truths that i'll never see
sometimes unique is made for alone
and alone is made for unique

you wrestle with giants that have no heart
(guzzling phantoms that wear only darkness...)
simpler to let things sift through the night,
then come morning taste the cream of your life

Field Of Dreams

Come walk with me thru' a field of dreams 
Of wooded lanes and sunlit streams 
Where rainbows light the path below
And Sunlite' beckons the flowers to grow
 
On beaches strewn with shells and sand 
Come walk with me all thru' this land 
We'll run with the wind blowing in our hair 
And all our hopes and dreams we'll share
 
With hands deliciously touching and learning 
To devour a flame in our souls that's burning 
The moon will be our friend at nite'
We'll walk in the shadows and hold on tight
 
We'll dance till dawn and laugh with the sun 
And wonder where the nite' has gone 
Natures sweet smells will fill our senses 
And we'll drink from it's bounty until it quenches~ 
Our thrist for life and love and glory 
And pray for no end to come to our story
 
In endless play and voices that sing 
Sweet waters dimpling laugh from a spring 
The comforting feel of sensual fingers 
And the fragrance of skin... 
And the smell that lingers 

   Oh, it's such a sweet refrain... 
       To live and love and dance again

Don't try to understand

Don’t try to understand the way it is.
Don’t work it out with logic or you’ll miss
The loveliness that all around you lies
In everything that lives, and always dies.

Look without the words that cause the mess,
And gaze at life with so much tenderness.
Just drink in all the mystery you see,
Swim within it’s beauty, let it be.

So dance my child and wildly sing your song,
This song is yours to you it does belong.
Just live your life, embrace eternity,
And feel within that fire of ecstasy.

You tread a road that never has been trod,
Be you with the devil, or with God.
Go with it child, and melt within the flow,
Feel that mighty flame within you grow.

The Dance of the Ocean

The ocean seems so relaxing when you hear the wave 
Healing sounds that can clean a soul and save
Even when the waves brings in an unknown 

Dodging the sadness can be shown
And the things become more easy
None will dance with balance so steady
Can a person by the ocean feel free of fright
Embarking conquest with passion that last in the day and night

Out on the beach on the sand we dance on a spot
For we hold our friends and an family a lot

Tricky the waves move with a trance each day
Hardly understandable to what I have to say
Even when the wind pushes the water most

Onto the sand by the ocean cost
Cites that people love to see and use as a passionate source
Even when it the wind blows the ocean waves set a different course
And finely the wave pulls back and forth in a lash
Notes that make music in every ones ear with a splash

Special Time

When in a weakened state I fall
             You lift me to my feet
It is not for other eyes to see

When I cry at Your feet
             When I sob on the floor
It is not for other eyes to see

This time is so special
             This time for us alone
It is not for other eyes to see

When I’m gaining my most strength
              It comes when I am here
It is not for other eyes to see

So before You I sing praises
              And I dance as David danced
For it is not for other eyes to see

My heart is full of love
               My spirit soars high above
All the adversity that there may be 

Truly  my heart sings with joy
               As my feet dance for You
For this is just for You and me

When I praise You, Lord
               When I dance before You, Lord
It is not for other eyes to see

You make this our special time
               A time I hold so dear
It is not for other eyes to see

I Wish I Could

I wish I could dance forever,
And then I would stop never.

Like the light on my window sill,
Dance to the end in a frock with a frill.

Dance like a graceful peacock in the rain,
I'll be as proud a lion is of his mane.

Dance,dance,dance till my feet drop off,
All my sorrow I will laugh off.

All my pain I will forget,
For when I dance I do feel great.

I wish I could dance forever and ever,
And then I would stop never.......

the ministry of the dance

the ministry of the dance is always Scripture based
it's all about bringing the Holy Spirit into the place
the ministry of the dance has a purpose that is two-fold
of Godly deliverance and breaking demonic strongholds
to deliver someone from the spiritual bondage of society
and show with the power of the dance there's spiritual victory
to break demonic strongholds with divine break through
to show in dance what the joy of the Lord can do

the ministry of the dance is a physical manifestation of love
for Jesus the Christ, the Holy Spirit and Father God who dwells above
to know that the tears which are cascading from our eyes
was enough to touch a soul and move them to cry
to know that the spiritual energy we emanate so much
made someone feel that by the hand of God they've been touched
the ministry of the dance is a physical portrayal of the Holy text
and not based on one's age, gender, race nor sex
a powerful ministry that is open to all
of which by the Spirit one is called
a ministry of faithful dedication, true devotion and total commitment
with love for the Lord, trust in the Spirit and a Godly contentment

the ministry of the dance is more that just a worship service
it's a ministry of true faith with a specific purpose
to dance with the Light of the Lord radiating through 
and the Spirit of the Lord filling up the church's pews
the ministry of the dance is to give honor, glory and praise
to Jesus who died on the cross and 3 days later was raised
a ministry of divine inspiration
a ministry of divine elevation
to lift up someone and move them beyond their comfort zone
to lift someone up and move them to kneel before the throne
it's about the Holy Spirit taking complete control
it's about sacred dancing in order to save some souls

the ministry of the dance will forever be spirit-led
it's a visual ministry serving of the Daily Bread
it's not a ministry that is meant to entertain
it's a ministry powered by the sacrificial blood stain
the ministry of the dance is about spiritual victory
that which Jesus died for to give to you and give me
it's not a performance and it does not invite vainglory
it's about being used an instrument in the outward expression of the Biblical story
the ministry of the dance is a ministry of total sacrifice
to submit your body, heart and soul into the hands of Jesus the Christ

Fellowship Unforeseen

As my departure from everything I've so far known
grows nearer in my sight, as I prepare to embrace it,
the support from those both close and stranger
floors me; with such backing, surely I can face it.

Occasionally the tears come close to brimming,
as I truly realize what I've meant, to kith and kin;
goosebumps stand out when I sit and ponder
what I've done, how such love to earn and win.

To me, I've simply lived my life, for others and for me,
strove to meet my expectations and done what I chose.
Yet it appears, along the road, I've made some memories, friends,
that I hope to see countless times again, ere the story's close.

Honor, courage, commitment, semper fidelis -
for these I've signed on; the opportunity to serve,
to defend, for this I have asked and been given.
I entreat eternity for the fortitude, that chance to deserve.

If every soul, every story, every journey through life
has moments such as these, then it's worth every pain;
sorrow, while always tragic, lends itself to better appreciation
of the true magic the world can offer - the arcane mundane.

I will likely never be able to say
what these simple looks and words now mean;
I take comfort and emotion from their faith and feelings,
strength that I may truly become a Marine.

Fate sometimes casts us over the edge,
but there's always some path, however faint the chance,
to make your way back; often it's the hand of another.
If you take it, then forever onwards, with fellowship you dance.

A Tribute

I look into your soul and I am in awe
I read your words and I fly to heavens doorway
Each word carrying a message of beauty so profound
I travel through glorious gardens I can scent each rose 
The colours of your garden dance before me and I sing
You take me to a Ballerina and I feel her love for dance
You take me to your inner soul and I cry with love so true
I fly with you across the Universe and come Alive
I step into a world I always knew existed
But never dreamt such beauty could be shared
I thank you for this gift of words that enrich my soul
I want to fly back to the garden and its beauty behold
You are a conductor with baton poised
And I dance to the music of your words with joy
Whirling, whirling lost in time and space
Climbing higher and higher, upwards ever more
Humbled by the experience and emotions unleashed in me.

Save the Last Dance for Me-

Unto Magnificent one

Beholder of Eternal Life

Than shall come 
our time to be

Illusions of Enharmony

I dance on illusion, getting caught up in the spin, the sad waltz, the happy waltz, the dance with foes, that "I" have made. Money makes me happy, or money makes me sin, it’s a tune that never ends, following the painted footsteps on the floor, when I was young. Now I must spin faster, keeping very still and quiet as I go. No more footsteps, no more dance halls, no more enharmonic trances played for me, steady now in deep devotion, resting in the One Reality.

Forever-Part 2

Pacabells cannon starts to play. The gates open and everyone looks my way. Beautiful black and red roses line the red carpet that leads to you. You look amazing tonight too. I look at my white dress as I step into the setting sun. The light catches the black sparkles and roses on my dress and makes me look beautiful, makes me feel like one. A black rose on this beautiful LA sand. A black rose that belongs to a wonderful man. I slowly walk down the aisle. I walk up to you and I smile. There's black and red roses on the alter and I get up ther. I can smell their sweet fregrance in the warm evening air. The paster starts as I look at you. You say you vouls and I say mine too. You say "I do," and I do the same too. You slip yet another beautiful ring on my finger and kiss me so sweetly. We hold hands and walk back down the beautiful rose lined aisle.

 

We walk to the peir where there are beautiful lights hung up everywhere. I spin to look at the beauty and you lean in close to me and say, "wait here." You walk up to the DJ and request and smile as a familure tune comes on. I continue to smile and I take your hand. you walk me back out onto the beautiful sand.  "Our first dance," you say. My smile gets bigger when I here Amazed starts to play. You pull me closer to you as we start to move from side to side. My nourvousness is hard to hide. "You okay beautiful?" you ask softly as you gently run your hand through my hair. "Yeah baby, I'm fine," I say as I see people gather around and stare. We dance and we sway sweetly and quietly. We kiss and dance slowly. We kiss again and you start to sing along with the song. I've been waiting for this day, I've been waiting so long.

 

We'r walking on the beach again. hand in hand. you still in your tux, I'm still in my dress. This is our future. Together. Forever. The setting sun catches my ring. It shines brightly. "I love you," I say and we kiss again. "I love you too," you say and gently pick me up.

You carry me back up to the house. You carry me up sairs and lay me on our bed. You lay beside me and gently kiss my head.

We lay there and talk for hours and hours. We smile and laughas our future stretches on in front of us.

Dancing in the Rain

Help me to soar like an eagle, 
To shine like the sun moon and stars.
Write a melody of angels,
As I sing my praises plain;
Grant me no shelter from the storm,
As I learn to dance in the rain.

Keep me dancing to your tune,
As I love and follow you,
'Till the curtain's final call.
I can take great big strides,
'Cause I know you're right beside,
Ready to catch me when I fall.

As I learn to dance, to dance in the rain

To God Be The Glory!

The other day I heard a voice. 
   Saying life is altered by a single choice
Be careful what you do or say 
    Think twice before you ask and pray
Life is lived day by day
     Think twice before you choose your way
We had little control of where we started
      With even less control from where we departed 
But we can more control the final end
       By choosing carefully our enmies and friends
We dance the dance we choose to dance
       Then we leave life to chance
Instead of living the life we chose to live
       We do exactly what others did
And then gets mad when God chooses not to forgive
        Who are we to know not, yet not know anything that is 
Afterward we get mad because it affected the kids
         You should of thought the thought
Before you thought to think
          the life you bought
You should of checked your wallet first
           Before you were shown the total cost
You should've been smart enough to put some back
           Before you found yourself running backwards down life's train tracks 
But instead you held your head high and out your chest
            you claimed your life was yours even til death
You friends tried to change you with their every breath
             But you dance the dance you chose to dance
And you rather leave life to mere chance.
              You was a now it all, yet you did not know it all
You were a warrior but never scared to fall
               You had two phones but never answered the right call
You always knew the right words to say
                 Yet you still went the other way
You knew how to talk and pray
                Yet you still lived life day by day
You knew life was more work then play
                 Yet you always knew it would be okay
How did you have such security
                In a world filled with lies and insecurities
How did you remain so strong 
                In a world filled with less rights then wrongs
How did you continue to fight
                When the society's wrongs out numbered your God given rights
How did your life shine so bright
                 When darkness smothered all of your light
Who gave you your strength when you needed it the most
                  That even to this day you still continue to boast
There has to be more to your story
                    But let you tell it 
To God be the glory!

These Four Muses Sing

These Four Muses Sing


These four
 Muses simply pour
Epic words poets eat
 great writes can't be beat

Calliope sent charm and wit
 those favored she made it fit
Euterpe gave imagination as a boon
 graced with wisdom from brighten moon

Erato sprinkled poet dust on her few
 beautiful rhyme is all they now ever do
Polyhymnia awarded shining poetic worded love
 made it fit so very well, just like a boxer's glove

Four Muses gracing dear poet's Hearts and Souls
 raising man's poetic art by setting ever loftier goals
When poetic words rapidly flow into your sore aching head
 think not of yourself but rather of these four great Muses instead

Robert J. Lindley, 07-27-2014

note:
Of the nine daughters of Zeus and Mnemosyne who inspired 
artists and musicians. 
Four of the daughters: Calliope, Euterpe, Erato
 and Polyhymnia were specifically responsible for 
inspiring poets!!

Dancing among the Stars

As night is falling
Hear...  calling
As I go out... In the eve 
Dressed up in my evening gown
As a Man comes... for me 
He is all dressed up in his blues 
As we go unto the ball
Gone out on the town after all

Dancing among the Stars
Romance under the moon light
Out dancing on town
Dancing within the night lights
Just until midnight

For when the clock strikes
Midnight.. 
Then I must leave
Quickly… 
For I must go.. away
That way no one knows 
Whom I am…

Each week end
Dancing tis so much fun
Same ole thing
Hard to believe
Tis really... just a dream


But.. I shall dance among the Stars
Singing praises unto my king
My Lord.. my savior whom died for me
I shall rave.. and Dance for Jesus
I shall raise my hands and swing
I shall twirl about and dance
As my long hair flys in air.. within the wind
As I twirl around for Jesus again.. and again
And Dance always for Jesus..
For He the Only One
Then I shall.. dance.. the dance for Jesus
Raising and Praising unto my king
For everything.. His Glory Brings

Praise's be to God... Always.. 
Come dance for Jesus
Dance among the stars
In Heavenly home
Knowing now 
I shall never be alone…
Praise always be

MUSIC TO DANCE TO

The rain falls gently against my skin
Releasing the whispers in each gust of wind 
Picks me up than gently puts me down
Playing its music so i may dance around
 Sharing its beat with every breath i take in 
Changing its direction as i dance and spin
The rain drops now fade away 
Through the willow branches the sun shines my way 
The winds gusts halt's to a low 
Now a slow song is played as i dance to and fro

Unbound, Certain, and True

As we weave our dance today some time slips into being what is before us in this glorious dance I love so as tears fill my eyes with your joy and recognition focused in perfection before me where I can breath them into life life that we share as one separate but never far apart in a life that I love like water drinking your skin with my eyes as you sail through canyons of uncertainty as if tomorrow could die and you'd be happy just as you are today knowing your heart is not some moment's creation but eternally woven into being by the very footsteps you are taking now and have take since before you knew you walk alone together with me as if we recognized some purpose dreaming we may touch in order that we do knowing the day will come when this beauty will abound larger long enough to light a fire in the heart of a new traveler who lay sleeping silent there in the distant corner of your imagination until our love gives life again in a relay race without winner and our kiss seals their fate to become their own keeper and continue our flame as if they held us as they do just as surely as we hold them unbound certain and true

Mickal's Blissfuness

I came to the place of solace and beheld the joy of Mickal.  I dance the dance of 
jubilation as I awaited my turn to purchase my drink of bliss.  How could I not 
notice the radiance of yet, another magnificent creation of God?

Her beautiful olive-green eyes was filled with so much sensitivity and might.  
Then she encountered her friend and that's when I realize that this dove was a 
comforter for those whose heart's are heavy laden with sadness.

I proceeded to observe this tender soul as she dance the rhymic dance of delight 
and contentment.  Greeting's, thus did I softly uttered.  She smile and it was as if 
God  Himself had smile from the Heavens above.  It was at that moment that I 
realize that I was in the presence of  one of God's Angelic Being, that was 
disguised in that human vessel.

In the silence of my being I gave reverence to God for the marvellous fashion of 
Mickal.  Truly, today I was bless and found great appreciation in yet, another 
wonder of God Almighty.  Thus, was Mickal's Blissfulness.

Shall we Dance---Beholding Everlasting dance Forever-together

As he came...
Bent down towards me
He took me by the hand...
Led me out to the dance floor..
As the music played...
he held me close
his heart beating next to mine
warmth surrounded us...
soft... melodies played
I said... I am scared
For I never done this before...
He said.. no worrys..
I am here... my dear
then he whispered into my ear
Singing melodies of lyrics of song
As the music played
We swayed to the music
as held me close unto him...
his strong arms held me tight
dancing on through the night..
gentle as he... guided me
across the dance floor...
Sweeetness music played
More Beautiful then ever before...
Precious moments...

Then I woke up...
Twas just a dream
of many dreams..
But then again
was it???

Tis be soon...
As time shall be...
When moment comes
I shall dance the dance..
as He guides me 
Across the sky
Then between the stars...
To the other side.. 
Beyond... Glorious Love Eternity..
Sweeet Divine Precious moments..
Shall forever be...
Music Plays.. Melodies unto our King
Harmony of all souls
Whom belong to Him
Come... to Jesus
Lets Dance the Dance of Glorious Love Together...
Sweeetness of the Souls..

When I am Old

When I am old I want to dance aglow
With the music coming from the radio
The steps we take may be only a few
But, the"Tennessee Waltz" I'll dance with you--
Hold me close so I can feel your presence
Swaying together e'en when out of breath

When I am old I would like to discuss
All things, anything that brings joy to us
Perhaps we'll see a crowd of daffodils
In our mind's eye or on the hill for real
There may be a shepherd and flock of sheep
Crossing a flowing stream from hill so steep

When I am old I want to hear laughter,
You will enjoy my words as I do yours
Building new memories that will endure
Whether writing words or painting pictures --
To have these simple things I'd be so blessed
Because within my shell lies happiness
     -E. Pearl Anderson

Dance of the Dead

It's been so long 
Since I saw the light
I heard that song
Once, when I was a child
The melody of the martyrs
You said.
The dance of the dead.

Now, I've been so far away
The light has scarcely hit my eyes
But I heard your voice today
And I'm waiting
For the heart in me to die
Then

I will dance eternity in your arms
I will sing your name to the world
In wonder I will succomb to your childlike charms
You are my God
And today, I am your child

In the distance I see
Stars lighting the dark
Pointing the way to the King
Your face captivates my mind
(beat beat)
My heart picks up the pace
Your knocking, I'm coming
Please, dont leave me to myself.

I brought my brokenness
And laid it at your feet
Now I stand Beautiful
In the midst of a broken world
My heart is the drum
But you are the beat
You are the music playing over in my head
And I am always yours 
Dancing the dance of the dead.

The Field

A wind blows softly caressing a field, Delicate, yielding waves of wheat Surrender to the direction the wind moves. With each passing breeze They move in grace and unity, This spectacular dance of nature. Illumination glistens from their heads What beauty shows in their harmony, As if a song is being sung. Not even the thistles standing tall & erect As if pride keeps them from bending, Disrupts the dance that fills the field. For in each passing breeze Is their calling to dance & sway, In humble obedience to the wind. The sun warms them, clouds shade them And nourishes them with gentle mists of rain, To reward them for their diligence.

Dark Shadows

 She dances in a ring of fire.
  Cackling laughter stirring in the hot muggy nights.
  Sweat dripping down her shining skin.
  Her eyes are affixed on the blackened feline stalking her from the woods.
  It's the night to feast upon the eve's magic, for one for all it's harvest moon.
  They dance upon the corpses wallowing in the despair of their timeless 
departure.
  It's time for souls to dance deep in the shadows of the trees.
  The raven calls it's madness echoing it's sadened glory.
  Isis, Isis queen of the dark, she whispers magic into all the creatures of the 
night.
  The horned frog hops along in a frenzied pace. The owl sits distilled and misty 
eyed perched on it's branch.
  Heartbeats pulsate throughout the land.
  Time does not exist in this hour of enchantment and dreams.
  The witches do their forbidden dance, while shamans sink into peyote trance.
  Their bodies so naked, pale, and bare.
  They stomp the sound of their sorrows.
  The moon peaks into the night giving the evening, bright soft light.
  They dance into the wild water, drenched and shimmering.
  The fire burns out, moonlight guides them through the nameless tides.
  Sunken treasure, seducing pearls.
  The witches generate all the power in the land.
  A blessing is born tonight, a small gem so radiantly damasked to the world.
  The child is born to strange becomings, and odd rituals.
  It's eyes are dark like that of an onyx sky..
  This child will carry on the workings and absorb the magic.    
  Born to the trees, born to the desert, born to the rainforest so lavenously green, 
  born to the tundra where snow is forever seen.
  She is born to the north, east, south, and west.
  Earth, air, fire, water all the elements making up her strange bondage
  She travels the world forever and free. She is the mysterious gypsy just aching 
to see.
  She is nor monster, nor sermon, nor beast, she is not a fairy princess at a 
banquet or feast.
  She is nor killer, nor savior to say the least. 
  She is witch, she is woman, she is wise, all do respect to the mens demise.

Buffalo Dance

Rough, Untamed 
Rush the draw 
Primal energy 
Passionate, Raw 
 
	Painted face 
	Feathered lance 
	So begins 
	The Buffalo Dance 
 
Race the Thunder 
Over the hill 
Take the world 
By sheer will 
 
	Free and Wild 
	Without care 
	Fearless screams 
	Split the air 
 
Call it Destiny 
Call it Chance 
Drums beat out 
The Buffalo Dance 
 
	Rise and Fall 
	The Liar’s Moon 
	Death and Existence 
	Come too soon 
 
Earth is made  
Of Give and Take 
Past and Future 
Are at stake 
 
	Lightning strikes 
	Evil askance 
	Spirits of Fire 
	Join the Buffalo Dance 
 
Caution tossed  
To the Wind 
Now is the place 
To begin 
 
	Turn the herd 
	Lead the pack 
	Valiant hearts 
	Blaze new tracks 
 
Dreams are real 
This is no trance 
Life lived Full 
Is the Buffalo Dance

Dance

Going over memories taking in the ocean breeze I do what I can to ease the pain sometime I walk in the rain just to shield my cold blue tears It's been two years and I'm still holding on cause letting go is a defeat I'll never know. I remember when you asked dance with me one more time I want to remember how It feels to be in your arms, If you ever find your self unable to carry on just look to the heavens and dance I'll always be right there with you dancing the whole night 
through.

Shine On - Feng Shui Crystal

Shine on, Shine on, O prism of glass
Spread your spectra across my life
Infuse your magic into a late morning dance
Your energies transfix me into a welcome trance.

Shine on, Shine on, wipe away my strife
Shine on, O glorious faceted jewel of my life
A liquid mirror, a yuletide pool
Frozen heartsong, Feng Shui tool.

When infant Spring's rays of lights hang low
Your rainbow of colors begin to dance and glow
In late afternoon's long luminous light
Your glories are revealed, in prisms of brights.

Your rainbows dance, without a sound
Your colors are everywhere, your magic abounds
You share Einstein's theories of Light and Space
Happily abundant, all colored vibrancy of crystal lace.

Late in the day, when the sun sinks low
Your presence fades away, it's the end of the show
Your dance to the unheard music stops
Your rainbows have come, and now they must go.

Ghost Dance

While the Ancestors worshipped 
   they shot them one and all. 
They thought they had stopped the dance 
   as they watched the Old Ones fall. 
 
But what they did not know 
   is that we do not die... 
Their bullets set us free 
   and sent our souls to fly.   
 
High above this shadow plain 
   where the spirit beasts do roam; 
We roost upon their sacred backs, 
    and the Buffalo carry us home. 
 
We dance for our lives 
   for the secrets of the Earth. 
We dance while they kill us 
   and through death find rebirth. 
 
We dance night and day, 
   to the drums thundering low. 
Singing medicine songs 
   to honor the Buffalo. 
 
Though we may not rise today 
   The People will not die; 
As long as we keep dancing, 
   the Ghosts...You...and I. 

We dance for the things for which we yearn; 
Grass covered plains, the Buffalo’s return. 
The fever of freedom forever will burn,  
While we’re dancing with the ghosts. 
 
For there is no time frame on prophesy, 
This is the Vision Great One gave to me, 
The Heart of The People will always be, 
Dancing with the Ghosts...

Special Teacher of Dance

Through the years students come and go, and time after time you teach and put on a show. 
The students dance and sing, and the audiance is proud of what they have seen. You 
remeber every name that walked through the door, and you keep above the game and people 
ask for more. Thanks for the gifts you have given us, thanks for the talent, love and 
trust. But most of all fot the loyalty year after year, your such a great person your 
such a kind dear.And remember this always, no matter what students do after they leave, 
it is what they hold close to there haert it is what they belive...that dance is not only 
an expression you show on the outside, it's a feeling and emotion you have on the inside. 
So, whatever we do after we move on just think to yourself and be strong, and know that 
we are all grateful for all that you do, and we can sincerly say "how much we all love 
you".

Aude Sapare: Drunk On Communion

He who claims to know no fear of death
Falls with the poisoned wine of lies
Upon his lips;
But he who may make this fear a friend
Shall grasp Eternity in the end.
His heart will open as his reason slips
As he feels upon his final breath
He dances as his spirit flies
And in that Space
Between the sea and sky
He sees the Beloveds' face
Eye to eye.

     Merge with the drops in the ocean of time,
     Drunk on communion with all things Divine.
     The Universe dances - how sweetly She sings!
     Through the manifest beauty in all living things
     The answer lies deep in the fruit of the vine,
     The lover finds love in the taste of his wine.

The stars shine in blackness
Whirling through infinite space
Casting their light 
On the unbounded dark;
We seek to stand firm, impressing our mark
On our lives swift and bright
Asking history to honor and to bless
Our efforts in this threshing-floor race.
We all are unbounded
United yet free,
The Beloved is with us
If we could but see.

     Step in the river and lose yourself there
     Dance 'round the fire without any care.
     The stars do their spiral dance over our heads
     We have all we want once desire is shed.
     For this is the answer, so simple and true:
     You live within me as I live within you.

To seek wealth and fame
Is to sail upon sand;
The thirst for possession 
Can never be quenched.
Ambition's a prison, your heart is entrenched
In small thoughts' concessions
You lose sight of the game.
Your freedom awaits you, just stretch forth your hand
The Beloved will embrace you
And win you to Truth;
Then dance with you, smiling
Eternal in youth.

                                        
                                         Aude Sapare
                                         Aude Sapare
                                         Aude Sapare

                               Om....Om....Om...Om...Om

Dancing among the Stars

As night is falling
Hear...  calling
As I go out... In the eve 
Dressed up in my evening gown
As a Man comes... for me 
He is all dressed up in his blues 
As we go unto the ball
Gone out on the town after all

Dancing among the Stars
Romance under the moon light
Out dancing on town
Dancing within the night lights
Just until midnight

For when the clock strikes
Midnight.. 
Then I must leave
Quickly.. 
For I must go.. away
That way no one knows 
Whom I am

Each week end
Dancing tis so much fun
Same ole thing
Hard to believe
Tis really... just a Dream


But.. I do.. 
I shall dance among the Stars
Singing Praises unto my King
My Lord.. my savior whom died for me
I shall rave.. and Dance for Jesus
I shall raise my hands and swing
I shall twirl about and dance
As my long hair fly's in air.. within the wind
As I twirl around for Jesus again.. and again
And Dance always for Jesus..
For He is the Only One
Then I shall.. dance.. the dance for Jesus
Raising and Praising unto my king
For everything.. His Glory Brings

Praises be to God... Always.. 
Come Dance for Jesus

A Hurried Life

Do you run through each day on the fly?
When you ask, “How are you?”
Do you hear the reply?
When the day is done,
Do you lie in your bed,
With the next hundred chores,
Running through your head?

You'd better slow down!
Don't dance so fast!
Time is short!
The music wont last!

Ever told your child,
“We'll do it tomorrow.”
And in your haste not see their sorrow?
Ever lost touch,
Let a good friendship die,
Because you never had time,
To call and say “Hi!”

You'd better slow down!
Don't dance so fast!
Time is short!
The music wont last!

When you run so fast to get somewhere,
You miss half the fun of getting there.
When you worry and hurry throughout your day, 
It is like an unopened gift....
Thrown away....!!!!

Life is not a race!
Do take it slower!
Hear the music!
Before the song is over!!!!

dancing shadows

standing at the crust of life
peeking through dark shadows
that dance and glide
to string guitars and distant drums
shadows
that sneak through the night
playing peek-a-boo
under the pale moonlight
and stars that twinkle
oh so bright
shadows
hiding behind trees
that sway with the breeze
of a silent wind
hiding behind branches
that never bend

afraid to cross over
to the other side
for fear of the shadows 
that dance and glide
yea, though i walk through
the valley of death
evil shadows surround me
i've grown weary of this test
fighting never-ending battles
to be free
i can see the distant light
looming straight ahead
dodging
the shadows of the night
wiping away fear and dread
creeping toward the light
instead

standing in the warmth 
of the light
baptized in its' glory
a wonderful feeling 
of pure delight
i will not look back
at the shadows of the night

Life Will Always Be A Saint

The stars will always dance 
Around the orbit of innocence 
Where no murder or lies 
Can taint the throne of the skies 
The grass will always be green 
No matter how much blood is shed 
Because strength has prevailed 
Against the dangers of rotting 
The sun will always glow 
Proclaimed with glories cloak 
It will shine against pain 
And rule over its master called confusion 
Oh the heavens will rain 
And flowers will bloom 
No matter how much acid tears are stained 
Upon its stems 
Light will always dance 
In the faith of seeing 
It will always be heated 
No matter how much chill is fathered 
Innocence will always stand strong 
No matter how much lies taint 
Its flowing reason for living 
Life… will always be a saint

Take me down

 Take down all that you are wearing.
  By that I dont mean your clothes.
 By that I do mean all that you are baring.
  I'll run with you,but will you run with me.
 
 If I wait for you I hope it's not to long.
  I hope to find you before the light is gone.
 Take back all our disaray.
  We'll go back to the fields where we used to play.
 And I'll run with you,you're such a lovely being.

 Take me down.

 Summer weighs heavy down upon me.
  I can still feel the sweat pouring down me.
 I can still taste your lips so beautiful.
  But I wonder how they are ever going to find me.
 And I dance with you,but will you dance with me.

 Take,take,take me down
   If I wait for you I hope its  not to long.
 But I hope to find you before you before this life is gone.
  Take back all of our disaray.
 And we'll go back to the fields where we use to play.
   And I'll wait for you,
     you're such a wonderful being.

Go

Go rest in Heaven, Go sleep in peace,
Go dance on the other side.
Go celebrate the battle won
Of crossing Jordan's wide.

Go live with Jesus, Go be with Him,
Go rest with God above.
Tell my family all gone before,
Please tell them of my love.

Go join the angel choir and band
Just save me a seat beside you
We can walk together in that fair land
And see Jesus and worship Him, too.

Now you're in Heaven, So sleep in peace,
And dance on Glory's side.
Celebrate the battle won,
Of crossing Jordan's tide.

Choose To Dance

A song leaps from my heart at the beginning of each new day, 
A song with a melody that never plays a sad song, 
Never carries a tune that is wrong, this is just my way…
If I have the choice of sitting this one out, I will choose to dance! 
If there is breath of life there is always hope of life, 
Love and great things to experience and know! 
It is so important if there is love of the heart, to let it show! 

Some live a life that never knows real sorrow, 
Some face sorrow more than it seems they should. 
Some we say, have more than their share, 
But still face it as much as they could. 
If you have a choice dance, dance, dance! 

Even in the face of sorrow, I don't want to sit this one out, 
Even in the face of tears, I don't want to sit this one out, 
I want to choose to dance! 
I hope with all my heart, that no matter come what may, 
That you will always choose to dance! Dance of the heart, dance of the soul, 
Dance with all your might, dance with courage, never letting go.
Choose To Dance!

find who ur.

I find words that dance in my head, words I let flow on this key board and on this sit,
poems?I find that hard to be, the lines the phrases are thoughts that come out of me,
words that I don't, won't, couldn't, and will not say they just are there for me to write,
no one knows, I write in the early hours of the morning that is when what is in side flows
free,
I love looking at things people don't see,love-life-loss-pain-joy-and roses oh so sweet,
merely a shell of the person I use to be,no longer looking out from behind cold eyes,
but looking from my eyes now I see,all the beauty, and what it is to be complete,
to savor a moment,touch a life time, hold eternity to spread my wings and fly,
with these words on this site I am...?
here you can't see me to judge me, I can't be heard to not be listened to, here I just write,
out loud I can't say how hurt I fill,how scared at times I am, or how I some times I need
a hand,
in poetry I find strength,courage, meaning, in poetry I find the coat I need at night,
off this site I'm some one who won't let any one in,a clown with a grin,
people believe I know not, no one knows- I've lived in hate walked in blood and lost,
soft,calm, some one who knows no better, no one sees are hears the person within,
when I lost I chose to let all my anger go,I have no hate,no remorse, I paid the cost,
stepped on walked over disrespected, but inside I'm happy...to me it doesn't matter,
I could ...?but why? all it is,is hate,love lifted me to new heights why turn back,
I will admit at times I would like to unleash the foundation of my soul he who is black,
but he's buried in pages of the words I wrote, lost in the words I scattered,
I just fill sad for those who hurt, I fill bad for those who do not see, helpless and lonely
pain turned to anger,a loss turned to hate, and love unbelievable to a scared heart,
some times you can't make it on your own, we all need to be,in life there is no only ,
just some one lost in side- if we all could see this it would be a good start,
I have no need to tell you my story to show you my wounds are my roads stains,
the past is where we look back for at times we forget how old we are,
its not how we weather the storm but how we learn to dance and sing in the rain,
hope-faith-dreams-to just believe look inside...it isn't too far.

More to It (2004)

It isn’t just about sticking it in and out
So what’s it about?
It’s a work of art
Something that pours from the heart
Smoke only comes from a fire
It is a combination of love and desire
It’s moving like a mirror reflection
The act is that of consensual selection 
It takes practice to please
It takes skill and specialty to tease
Just imagine it as a dance 
A dance that leaves you in a trance 
The dance should finish in a simultaneous thrill
You see theres more to it then putting it in
