DANCING IN THE REIGN

August 1, 2017

I heard

the applause of many angels

reign down on a dance floor

glowing

with the stars in gentlemen’s eyes

as the ladies danced in satin gowns

and their best diamonds!

No other light was needed.

GIFTS? WHAT GIFTS?

My soul is raining!

Stubborn sun, why must you shine?

Tears refresh the joy.

Just Dance!

June 15, 2017

just dance

I saw the others in the room

dancing to a tune I could not hear.

I stood aside,

I watched and sighed.

Wishing,

Wondering,

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!

LIGHT STILL SHINES ON A DARK WEEK

May 24, 2017

LOOK FOR IT!

The sun still shines

on dark rainy days.

You can see it reflected

in EVERY puddle!

POUNCE!

SPLASH!

SMILE!

YOUR CHOICE!

May 19, 2017

Day three . . . will the rain EVER stop?

My mood was falling like the steady drops of rain

So I stepped outside.

I looked up at the clouds

Intending to share

a piece of my mind!

Instead,

The cooling, cleansing drops had their way

And I laughed

Then pounced in the nearest puddle!

I was young again!
