Everything in life is a dance

One may dance alone,
or take a partner.
Someone leads,
the other follows.
Roles may be reversed,
or they may not.

If the partners are attuned and attentive,
the dance flows with harmony;
otherwise cacophony may take place.

At times the dance is a Waltz,
at times it may be a Samba.

Some stay with the one partner,
others like to switch.

Some may dance in private,
others in a ballroom.

Some dance as if their life depends on it,
some take frequent breaks and sit at the sideline watching.

Life is a playlist with a mixture of music.
Everything in life is a dance.

    I really appreciate this poem because dancing can be a metaphor we use for conflict. In my family of origin, our metaphor was that of war. I have been changing the way I think about it as a dance, cooperating with people to make something beautiful.

      Yes, thanks. It reminds me that years ago I heard someone say about yoga that it should be a dance, and not a boxing match as is often the case in many studios… 🙂

    “Dance me to your beauty with a burning violin
    Dance me through the panic till I’m gathered safely in
    Lift me like an olive branch and be my homeward dove
    Dance me to the end of love
    Dance me to the end of love”

    L. Cohen
