Today we danced.  It was wonderful
to have

someone in your arms, moving slowly to the music,
letting it drain in your body, letting the waves move over
you, and the feel of your love in your arms.

Then, her arms became twisted, like the trunks of a tree
that shiver in the morning light, its arms raising to the sun,
the beginning of warmth that encompasses you,

and your lover.  I have found dancing is the best way to
let someone know you love them-and I like all kinds of music,
rap, hip hop, rock and roll, and we'd rock and rolled all night,

dancing, swaying, thinking of the glory of the sun and

everyone in it.
