Poem: Sway – 07/04/21

A dainty bow signals a gentle approach, 
the lady will accept without any form of reproach. 
She takes his hand and they twirl, swirl with glee, 
palm to palm now, 
solemnity, 
there is no chance to flee. 

In perfect style, they then waltz and careen,
to others it’s as though their joyfulness has ne’er been seen, 
but today, it is on show, 
it is accumulating, 
like maidens smiling in a row, 
greeting their dance partners, 
in beautiful outfits, decorated from head to toe. 

I smile upon the scene playing in my mind, 
the partners sway and sway, 
closeness here to find, 
their emotional capacities sing, 
they’re together through everything, 
they’ve selected, 
they’ve chosen, 
ahead a vast ocean of positivity Life will bring.
