Just Dance!

just dance

I saw the others in the room

dancing to a tune I could not hear.

I stood aside,

I watched and sighed.



They seemed to share a joy

I didn’t know.

They seemed to know a love

I didn’t feel.

I waited in lonely silence.

Then, I could wait no more.

With awkward steps

I left my hiding place

And followed.

At first my steps

Were slow and few

But then it happened!

I began to hear the music, too!

The more I danced,

The less I considered my shaky feet

For I had found something else.

I discovered joy!

  1. Simply beautiful! To join the dance, we have to leave our corner and be willing to face uncertainty so we can grow in grace.

  3. I wish there was a LOVED button instead of just LIKED!! I love, absolutely love poetry and most especially inspiration poetry dealing with the attributes and character of our Lord!!! Don’t be surprised if I don’t come to you and ask to reblog some of your poetry as I believe so strongly in sharing the gifts that our Lord has given to each of those who serve Him!
    Thank you so much for visiting my new blog. I don’t believe in coincidence or luck, but rather the leading of the Holy Spirit. The Lord knew you had to come by so that I would find your site! I WILL be back for sure as time permits, no doubts there. Poetry is like one of my few guilty pleasures. I tried my hand at it many, many years ago and realized I just didn’t have the gift, but the Lord “gifted” me with a great LOVE for it!!
    Until I can get back, God bless you greatly as you continue to serve (minster) to us AND the Lord with such awesome insight! And a plus, I see you have a lot of archives for me to browse through!!! Praise God!! I will have fun!!! (but I have to do what the Lord asked me to do also!!!) Again, God bless you and yours!
