Life Is a Dance

Life is a dance we were all born to do. The styles to choose from are more than a few! Some choose simple two-step; some move with flair. Some slow dance; some break dance, devil-may-care! Some free style, while others just dance on cue. Some tango with zest; some shuffle soft-shoe. Others glide easily, waltzing on through. Some change their partners; some stay one pair. Life is a dance. You start with the styles in your own milieu, then grow as you add on new moves you view. You’ll stumble, but sometimes dance on sweet air! Just keep the beat; try new steps if you dare, for where you end up is all up to you. . . Life is a dance! For Kim Merryman's Life Is... Poetry Contest

    Rondeau is the right form for this dance. The 18th Century French composers included this dance in many of their works. Thought you might not know that. hardy, ho, ho. Luck in the contest, birthday girl. Love, daver

    Dear Andrea, This poem is so impressive and a wonderful way to view life. I love to dance and I got lucky on my second partner, waltzing through life with him has removed all the stress that was making me ill with my first dance partner. This is going into my fav's for sure. I LOVE THIS POEM!!!hugs, Lotus

    This poem reminds me that I recently took classes in West Coast Swing. I have realized that iam not Fred Astaire or Micheal Jackson. But dancing is great and is an good and positive spin on life itself as you show in your metaphorical work. Peace & Love Matthew Anish
