Poem - Dance Dream Again

I'm at a point in my dancing that I do have moments when I wonder “how did get here with such a marvelous partner?”. My partners WANT to dance with me. Very Talking Heads “Once in a Lifetime” stuff.

Dance Dream Again
Poem for Day 121 – 20150502

I had that dream again,
the one that I welcome,
but find most disturbed.
I had that dream tonight,
and I'll tell it to you.

It is one of dance,
and I am to be the lead,
with you a partner in crime.
I'd be with no other,
but what I am to do?

How did I get here?
How do I respond to beauty
in my arms, couples at my side?
How do I dance, can I dance,
with one as lovely as you?

The others know what to do,
leads cajoling the magical moves.
Followers responding with glee,
consummate masters of their destiny,
and I am just plain confused.

You are beauty incarnate,
Venus herself would be jealous.
One of such many in this dance,
but the first amongst equals,
sheltered safe in my arms.

But wait, I know this song,
this melody comes to mind.
My feet remember familiar steps,
to guide you by my side
to be your dancing paramour.

I dreamt of dancing,
fleet of foot, light of heart,
with a lovely lady by my side.
People around, focusing me,
with you in my arms complete.
