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?

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....

Dance, dance, dance. I love to dance and I dance on my own in my home while I do my chores Sami. But the best dancing is a slow romantic dance with my husband of 37 years. Nothing like a slow smooch with the one you love. You know dancing is great exercise and is an opportunity to express yourself creatively. It is another art form just as poetry is. Happy Valentine's day for the 14th my friend.

dear Sami... I dance to the ambience of a new day...
with it's own celestrial light... to opportunities that knock
within the chambers of my heart. Melodies of babies born,
and promises made. truly, beautiful... Pat

dancing keeps us young...love to dance...and with the right partner, we may dance into the future...
no bounds, no steps, just moving to the beat of life...
and if we dance well with a partner...no selfishness allowed...and the partners keep good perspective.
play that music, Sami...
