The Waltz of Spirit


“I will come alive for you in ways you may never imagine but in ways you will come to know as real.” –Your Universe


"You are connected to a magical, loving universe.

One that will come alive for you, dance for you,

In ways you can never imagine

But in ways you will come to know as true." - Melody Beattie

Good evening, Mr. Blue Jay!

Would you come, be My first dance for Me?

My heart in my palm, round and round

The dance floor we’ll go.


Down from Ms. Rainbow I came

To catch my first dance, be with You

And so till the music ends

And the next dance begins.


All the dancers like Stars

In a constellation they wait

To light up the dark, even brighter

Like Big Bang exploding


St. Francis sits round a table

With rabbit and dove and dog a-waiting

Who shall my next dance be?

Mr. Opossum barges in, and so it is he.


The Emperor’s Waltz playing, neverending

Other dancers around the floor

Like Me heart in palm

Crescendo … ascending, hearts a-rending


Hearts amending. Finally full of joy

Ms. Dandelion … full of light

Ms. Purple Lotus … full of delight

From muck, arising into beauty.


I am within, around, through and true

I am no-thing and Everything

Heart in the palm of your hand, I’m in You

Fellowman to all man.


Join in dancing, singing, triumphant beings!

I am the Waltz, you are the Dancers.

I am Spirit.

We are forever.



There is a relationship among the dancers presented in the poem. Other than they’re all being part of Creation and being beloved Creatures, can you guess what the relationship is?

Beautiful thoughts, beautiful lines, beautiful imagination!

I love this last part too..."Join in dancing, singing, triumphant beings!

I am the Waltz, you are the Dancers.

I am Spirit.

We are forever."

Enjoyed the very clear, graceful, romantic video! It is an awesome pick. I miss all my grandpa's LP Waltzes! I also used to get invitations to watch ballet performances from all ages. A ballet centre was just across our house, same compound. The video is bringing back memories of my childhood.

Ballet has its way of waking our soulful connection with tradition. Glad you're able to experience the beauty of Spirit waltzing behind the lines. Thanks!
