The rhythm of my body

I dance when my eyes blink I dance to touch your soul with an indelible ink I dance when my heart sings I dance to give a caged bird its wings I dance when my soul sobs I dance to the happiness of the harvested crops I dance when my spine shivers I dance to soothe your nerve tremors I dance when I rise high to the sky I dance to add glister to your gloomy eye I dance when I sink to the bottom of the earth I dance to celebrate the revival of hope on its rebirth. I dance when my head droops in the darkness of enigma I dance to the rhythm of the words that give a third degree to dogma. I dance when my hands tremble in the frozen forest of fear I dance to provide warmth to the icy days of the calendar year I dance when my hair strands race through the waves of the air I dance to the giggles of the roller coaster at the children's fair. I dance when my fate gets flipped I dance to outspread the wings of love that were violently clipped. I dance when your fingers tickle the veins of a flute I dance to digest the harsh reality of a bitter truth. I dance when a mother experiences the baby bumps I dance to wipe the tears of abandoned moms. I dance when success embraces my best friend I dance to drive the dunes of disaster away to their far end. I dance when it rains I dance to turn the barren land into a green belt of grains. I dance to my wishes I dance to my fears I dance to my smiles I dance to my tears I dance to my blood flow I dance to my inner glow I dance when I am low I dance when I lose my show Dance is in Me Dance speaks about Me Dance completes Me.

Swetha, I tore my acl and my miniscus and bruised my bone on the same day about four years ago. I love to dance, but have dared not since. This poem has given me the gift of feeling like I have danced, so thank you my friend!
