The Call to Dancing

Dance wherever you may be
For I am the moonlight licking your face
And the wind, humming a lullaby, all-is-well
Across your sand blown life with waxing waves.

Dance, under the stars, my eyes
My purple fog will clear in the twilight
When our worlds become one:
I breathe, through sky and earth, I am.

Dance the day spun into night
Death of suns and light renewed
Come and join the ring of fire
As our voices climb in spiral song.

Your urgency, your steps and falls, I feel.
Your hands, how many you reach out to touch, I feel.
Come, taste the life dust on your skin and recall why you were born
Remain a child, forever in my arms
And I will rock you, not so gently, until you grow and become like fallen leaves,
Unafraid of scattering.

When you have nothing to say, dance
For I will hear your cries with every stomp and bruise.
When you have nothing to love, dance
For then you will fall in love with motion
Lie on its properties and sleep soundly.

Don’t you remember how entropy sifted through time into your hair?
How you reverberated with light beams and were consoled by gravity?
So dance, feel my heart beat surround you
Here in the rustling trees, the roar of oceans.

Dance the rhythm of your own heart song
Beating in time, the whispers in your blood
Murmuring the memories of ages.
Weave yourself into the dance,

Stitched into the landscape of all,
Until now, you’ve only dreamed
And know that you have never left my love behind.
