Looking at Our World through Poetry: The Dance of Love

The Dance of Love


Your body joins my body
In a Dance of Love -
A dance as old
As the world itself.

Heart rings out its siren song

Of primal need
As your heart replies to my heart
With a music all our own:
A Symphony
Written for our bodies
From our conception.


When your body
First joined
With my body,
You and I -
Two halves
Finally made one whole.
One plus One
Truly became One
In a mathematical formula
Designed for us;
For we two -
Become One.


Our Love,
Crystallized
Made visible,
In this, our first moment
Of physical connection.
Two bodies,
Each returning home
After its solitary sojourn;
Its time apart from the other,
Form the union
That is the Life-Source
The Life-Giver
The Life-Renewer.


Two bodies,
Separating in Real Time
In geographic time
And in distance,
But two bodies
Still together
Still entwined,
Each in the other;
Each vibrant with sensation
In memory of the other;
Each tremulous with need
As the beloved form
Of the other is recalled
Is seen
Is felt again
In Emotional Time.


Each, a participant
In the wondrous Dance of Togetherness;
Each fulfilled
As he/she goes again
To the Fountain of Miraculous Moments
To commune again,
Body to Body
Mind to Mind
Soul to Soul
In Spiritual Union -
The Union that vanquishes
Space
Time
Preconceptions
Differences.


And each
Returns to everyday life,
Refreshed
Refueled
For the vicissitudes of Life
For the difficult journeys
That lie ahead.
Oh, Love,
Your gifts are great
And I am awed, anew,
By your presence.
