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 the "Life Is" Poetry Contest of Nayda Ivette Negron Flores

An enchanting parallel of life and dance, with all the options we can choose, and new steps the adventurous can learn. Love the adherence to the Rondeau form ~ John

Lovely metaphor, Andrea. Funny as we age the dance gets slower and slower.
