Poem - Dance Delight

There is a physical challenge to celebrating life through social dancing. It is a workout like no other, with sweating and aching that most people would not embrace through any other activity. I know from personal experience that it takes a near collapse or major pain to not respond to dance's delight.

Dance Delight

Soul is willing
the body weak
melodies lure
we must move.
A song familiar
or one that's new
it doesn’t matter
when pulse does beat.

Discord of body
the broken part
why the weakness
in the perfect place.
Knees do ache
back complains
no room for this
the dance insists.

Sweat on skin
garments soaked
no need to stop
this carnival.
Pride aside
find the muse
celebration is
the only goal.

Beyond the pain
there is the joy
finding space
to express the bliss.
The soul ascends
as bodies whine
this is the way
of dance delight.
