The Dance of Hope

I want to dance that dance
let my courage of conviction have a chance

Tango then two step: Now freeze
pause in the moment to feel the breeze
put my anxious mind at ease
enter the moment and breathe
Hands raised, I surrender to receive
fall on my knees because I believe
There’s more than my eyes can perceive
As I become bright as the lights on Christmas Eve

Then toss myself as I rise and am surprised
the dance has not drained, but energized
My own freedom I don’t recognize
That is until I am mesmerized
by that which I see in her eyes
Then I shall know the chance from the dance
has equated to a sunrise…

  1. This dance was a delight to read! You convey such deep meaning in beautiful rhyme. I loved the polarity and intention in the lines – Now freeze
    pause in the moment to feel the breeze – surrender, flow, pause, freedom all so wonderfully weaved together!
