The Dance

The Dance

“Some stories don’t have a clear beginning, middle and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it without knowing what’s going to happen next. Delicious ambiguity.”

-Gilda Radner

Garth Brooks – The Dance

The Dance

A tentative waltz—sway, rise and fall.
Forward, side, back—a reflective recall.

Letters and words now carefully framed.
Each thought rehearsed again and again.
No turn or nod is left up to chance.
Steps have become a well-practiced dance.

Cues and timing both cautiously guarded.
The familiar rhythm lost and discarded.
Each dancer wary of crossing that line.
A closed position of mutual resign.


How far the distance traveled in a beat?
A tentative waltz left incomplete.
