Ballroom Dance - Poem by Jonathan ROBIN

She waits on dance floor's brink to think
of future fair ahead,
holds hands with wonder's link to ink
hope's scope, heart looks ahead.
She dreams beyond time's veil heart's tale
to share where most, mundane,
can compromise, fears fast disguise
past disenchantments'pain.
One, pushed by chance requests a dance,
advance accepted freely,
naught false with waltz, no step askance,
as time signs twine ideally.

She sways into vest, chest enthused
to rhythms heart may start
to startle starlit sky, refused
is hibernation. Dart
from Cupid obeys true interplay
anticipations meets,
where each day's reach may break away
from cares, and, sharing, greets
dreams blessed as fears fade, future clears
metamorphosis wished,
renewed zest's treasure chest. All ears
unlocked, shared dance is relished.

She leans, he seizes day and sees
shared opportunities
where Love love frees to please, to tease,
at ease beneath palm trees.
Joy now she understands all lands
by rainbow bridge are spanned,
as mountain lies at peace neath skies
where providence joins hands
with laughter, light, by day, by night,
by insight spurred to fly
on wings of white to true delight.
Acceptance seeks no 'Why? '
