One, Two, Three… One…

dance_steps Have a care, mind your backs, watch out,
you there…
don’t you know it’s extremely dangerous to
linger here?
There’s trouble a brewing, there’s a fight
in store,
I don’t know who’ll win but I know one thing
for sure,
by taking nothing for granted, you leave nothing
to chance
Now, …
lets start this again,
wishing I’d never agreed
I’d learn to dance…

    • ah now…. you’ve never seen me trying to dance, Willow, I leave a trail of destruction behind me… Mayhap I should concede defeat, whilst someone still has two feet left…(as apposed to my two left feet that is ..😉 ) xPenx

  5. Ah, Pen… I can’t dance, I can’t jive… and that is so painfully obvious when I do!!! So I don’t very often. Hardly ever, now in fact…

    • Ah Sir Aquatom, isn’t it funny, that in our minds we know we’re perfect at everything, (’til we try that is) yet here I am trying to coordinate the steps to the music and somehow I miss a beat, mayhap just one, and then the rhythm just goes and what should be a perfectly smooth dance becomes a jerky non event… xx

  10. This is perfect, Pen. We often go the wrong way around the floor, adding another dimension of encounter.

    This poem is a wonderful summation of the finite dance we are forced into as we encounter the world.

    • I think we all try to learn the dance of life, James, we just seem to be listening to different tunes. If we could synchronise, mayhap we’d stop leaving a total trail of destruction in our wake. Many thanks for your comment and for dropping by new friend… xx
