Treasure Island

Can you Dance with me?


Can you dance with me if no one else can?
Zumba on the shape that needs some toning
I see myself in the spell of someone’s hand
Under their command until I become strong.

In another playlist of my beautiful dream
Perched high dangling on edge in the sky,
Showing the place where I am coming from
I can see gravity fly and my world goes by.

Into sparkling mezzanine on which we dance,
Taking breathtaking leaps and stunning swings,
The intense accentuated a sparkling romance,
Into peaks streaks and cotton wool valleys.

Can you dance with me and get a little closer
Would you like to hold me until we are together?

Poem of the Day

poet Henry David Thoreau

My books I'd fain cast off, I cannot read,
'Twixt every page my thoughts go stray at large
Down in the meadow, where is richer feed,
And will not mind to hit their proper targe.
