Child Juggling Kumquats, Smiling - Poem by David Kowalczyk

can never dance.
All dance
is Tao.

can never forgive.
All things
create themselves.

Dance is not
wu-wei, action
without thought.

Dance is not shen yen,
realization that natural
rhythm is absolute freedom.

Dance escapes
Dance can only
be danced.

is not a way
of moving
both in sorrow
and in peace.

is not the child
of experience wedded
to understanding.

the union of open mind,
spontaneous movement,
and pure spirit.

the basic function
of dance.
