Devotion Poem THIS WALTZ

Devotion Poem **This Waltz** I believe this waltz is yours, my darling, As you commanded the band to “Play!” And the opals to hang from this ballroom’s ceiling Like stars spellbinding shinning to display Again our coupled dance of circles around Heaven in such joy-dreamed lives as we’ve found. Take my hand and embrace my waist that waits for you To begin this evening’s waltz — as history’s true lovers knew Will dissolve the floor and renew Our magic to send all the others off enroute To Otherwise…As here we two Glide by this waltz into a wild as few others ever do. The waltz keeps her notes Cosmic high — astride gossamer lines that reach along On throughout space — to weave the destinies Of its found dancers, like us, with our hearts drawn Yearning eternally to partner in love’s composed melodies — One waltz to follow another on and on… ———————————————————————————— (c)sally young eslinger 6/15/22 Thanks be to God ————- Love you, Jim

The dance of the Divine Heart with God's heart's creation. What a lovely metaphor Sally - "one waltz to follow another on and on." What an absolutely divine image of eternity! As one who loves to dance this poem really reverberated in me. Hope your shoulder is healing! Sending you blessings and prayers on the dancing wings of the Spirit.

i could hear another tune....Begin The Beguine...where wave and particle meld into the night...love in each other's arms..where eyes become locked in love's gravity in a celestial dance, where stars tell you what heaven you are in and you are not held in a dream but the arms....of That's Amore....loved the poem....i just finished one on the Tango...as he swirls you in closer and closer remember in the quantum world space and time exist not....his lips are your destiny

Wow! Human and divine ecstasy so brilliantly, tenderly, exquisitely combined. A waltz of spiritual starlight -- I hope this write is also a celebration for you and your special someone, past or present, for such deep sentiment deserves actual soulful connection. I know, a silly romantic I am. Can't help it~goes with poetry. Great poetry!
