The Dance

CL Gillmore

The Dance
by C L Gillmore
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.
