Let’s Keep Dancing

Lovers find secret places
inside this violent world
where they make transactions 
with beauty.”

~ Rumi


I had a dream that we were dancing
and because I didn’t know how to dance,
you asked me to stand on your toes..

Hand in hand, feet on feet..
..  you led the way
and we danced the night away..

I asked you if my feet were hurting you..
you gazed at me and smiled–
a sweet, subtle, tender smile.


The next day, I told you of my dream..
you listened,
and you smiled–
a sweet, subtle, tender smile

Lets keep dancing… I like you on my toes
you said.
