awkwardly I dance
because I have two left feet
hard to find partner

I watch you dancing
it seems you have two right feet
let us share some shoes

will you follow me
for if we move together
dance will have purpose

you move fluidly
my feet provide the structure 
made for each other

no limitations 
with artistry and purpose
we dance with the stars

life is not boring
we live within the rhythm 
music from heaven

God is our maestro
leading us to forever
in death we won't part

Rain Dance

We smile, it's raining Jovial in dancing joy Soaked to the skin Warm hearth welcomes us Naked to bare, towelling Goosebumps diminish Pillows, rugs, two lie Face to face, lips now caress We, attraction flows Candles flickering Undulating shadows grace Unification .

Seasons Of The Dance

Atoms dance, stars dance;
entropy increases while
creation dances.

Words and thoughts can dance.
These words danced across the page.
Seasons of the dance.

The seasons dance by;
Spring, Summer, Fall and Winter
and once again, Spring

We too are dancing;
some with joy and some with tears,
for life is a dance.

Those who dance with tears
feel the seasons of their life
are always Winter.

Those who dance with joy
celebrate all life's seasons
and all life's dances.

Fast movements...so swift...
Yet I wonder...how do they
Learn so fast...who knows!

First dance

Tightly she holds on

    Little pink feet on Wing Tips

        May I have this dance 
             ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~ ~

Music starts to play
    White lace, pearls, something blue worn

        Dad come dance with me...

The woman

Embrace In a Dream

dancing while band plays
inelegant  sits alone
hadn’t woken from dream

sits alone to find
a lie of  love pulled apart
awoke from a dream

embrace in a dream 
no one  sees  she sits alone 
wake up without her

Ocean Dance


                           She held my tiny fingers
                      And we jumped each salty wave
                          Dancing with an angel
