To Say You Dance                    by Sami Khalil


To say you dance,

means you have happy feet, that you give and take,

in crocheted forms, your poured self, your hormonal trusts,

impartial to daily grind’s eminence.

To say you dance,

says you put things in their natural contexts, in un-mutable

pearls of wisdom, fusing courage and fear as opposites on

contentment benches.

For when dancing, when swaying, the freedom of inclusion is not nuanced by the fickle fancy of spineless feet or fading nights.

 It is neither numbered by time’s acquaintances nor place’s

hindrances, but by the “will”, by the self-appointed change, by the

fullness of bliss commencing.

This “will” be never stagnant in morbid obesity or in its selfish gluttony. As for self-appointed changes, they rise from fragmented reality upon the

wispy timelessness, to a life of liberty.

There is a dance for every occasion, a song for every mood, lyrics to

unlit sanctuaries, vicariously turning banality into daydreaming.

These are the feet of hope, coming of age, in calculating cross responses.  

To say you dance is flattery to life, in sincerest forms, naught in hindsight,

at its dawns or eventide, past the gravity of its time and the gallery of our prime.

To say you dance, means you love romance! Will you give me this chance?

I went straight to the great use of line "hormonal trust" -
I don't know why it's intriguing to me but this dance alone is magnetic & almost felt like I was dancing along with each line -- cheers for another radly penned piece Sami

I love how your poem starts out a little lighter & then grows more passionate as it goes along, but then it ends on one wistful note, so hopeful & so unlike the rest of your message. I felt this as the kind of person who starts out shy, then grows some bluster as he gets warmed up to the idea of persuading, but then shrinks back into shyness again when he wakes up from his blustery spiel & remembers he's actually trying to ask for this long-desired intimacy. Your various definitions of "dance" remind me of a favorite song by Neil Young "Harvest Moon" . . . "I long to see you dance again" . . . I see this song as dancing one's life with spunk, as if coming back alive after being dormant in some ways . . . & your poem has a similar vein (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

Glad you did. Thank you kindly.
I adore this Sami. Happy feet, oh yes, there is such happiness in dance, and as you say, such freedom of inclusion is not nuanced by the fickle fancy of spineless feet or fading nights.

This is a celebration of life itself, of the joys of freedom and liberty, and so very well written.

Beccy.

This is beautiful Sami, I love to dance when I have the chance.. I even do it alone at home when my jam comes on the radio, I dance my one man show lol but yes I love dance so he I would give a chance. For when dancing when swaying , the freedom of inclusion is not nuanced by the fickle fancy of spineless feet or fading nights, I love these lines! :) brilliant

this is my knid of dance Sami.... no bounds or boundries, hell you don't even need music to flow and sway.... but Bowie sang once, "let's dance, put on your blue shoes and dance the night away".... or Daft Punk invited "everyone on the dance floor".... but the best kind of dance is the romantic dance of two lovers entwined and meshing rhythmically, swaying to the beating hearts..... we humans just love to dance Sami and as you noted, "to dance is flattery to life".... nicely done and very very romantic....
