SONG FOR THE DANCE (Dream-Based Poem)

Three of Cups in the Aquatic Tarot, by Andreas Schroter]


somewhere will always
think you wrong

accuse of conceit
or of murdering the moment

but do not stop dancing
do not ever stop dancing,
for neap tides become high,
and new moons, full

keep on singing, singing, singing
from the calm eye of joy
as you spin through this life

and emptiness
will be what fills you
till you ring, ring, ring
like a bell

*This poem is based on a dream I had on November 25, 2000. The last stanza is verbatim from the dream.

I like this very spring-like poem :) The last stanze reminds me of a Zen story a read once about people, and emptiness, and bells... I can't recall it all, but the image and thought were very similar.

Let us dance indeed!

Ah, I hadn't even thought of spring, but you're right it is very "springy." :-)
