Once, when I was young and the teen years were suddenly upon me, my mother talked me into attending a local school dance and asking a girl who was often left out of most social events. I reluctantly asked that girl and after attending the dance and making a complete fool of myself on the dance floor in my rendition of rock and roll, I vowed to never dance again, after my exasperating and embarrassing experience. Later on, as I attended college and dated, I realized the importance of the dance and what it meant socially. Later in my life I was married and the real dance of life began for me and my wife.I have included a poem about this dance and what it may signify to some.



The Dance of Life, Forever More



The quality and the true meaning of society,

and of all its special rules,

Are determined by a culture, its people,

and by those that it so schools.



This dance, is to have a vital part,

and in all of the social precepts, set,

Each member, must comply to them,

then to do this without any regret.



The dance may be to a music, and of the soul,

then so well expressed,

A movement of bodily parts, their motions,

with which we've all been blessed.



The feet may prance, and to step about,

to slip and slide, across the floors,

The head and hips, may have a part,

in the rhythm, that to each, implores.



The dance of life, to be not unlike,

the social one, in its on special style,

This social grace, does more embrace,

and in its wake, seems to beguile.



Our daily lives, that each, so survives,

and to depend upon our very own dance,

Avoiding this, in accepting that, then,

not leaving a choice, just to chance.



Each tree that moves and limbs to sway,

in a response to gentle urging of the winds,

While wild creatures, then, to run and crawl,

to fly and swim, as all life blends.



Colors descend, in a bright fabric to be spread,

by a sunset's gorgeous touch,

In songs, the birds, and whistling of their wings,

adding a chorus, to mean so much.



The grand dance of life, before us to flow,

in every river and in the sparkling streams,

By its rhythm, we are caressed, and all so blessed,

by each, as beloved sunbeams.


The symphony of our lives, as each one, so strives,

a fond experience, and by its design,

A waltz of the universe and all that's in it,

as overhead, the moon and stars, do shine...


as the moon and stars do shine.

      Beautiful, Whonunuwho. The dance of life is what you experience together in marriage , which, as you rightly put, requires harmony and blending to become a fine waltz. A fine poem, which I vote up and am sharing!!

      It is wonderful how your poetry elicits the emotions of the moments it describes. As I poet myself, I appreciate the tapestry you have woven with your words. Well done. Very nice art and accompanying photos too.

      What a beautiful poem. Life is a dance, and as we learn to do it in harmony, the days become like a fine waltz. Love your photo posts and they are beautiful, as usual. Thanks for the reminder of what a dance is all about.

      Thanks for your words of praise. and I'm so glad that you read my work. I was glad to hear about your book and I think that is a great way in expressing your experiences and feeling. I am a writer and have written a few little books and my wife also. I am a cartoonist, also as well as a wild life painter and try to keep busy doing the things that are good for me. Sharing with others is one way I have in feeling self worth and a emotional release. Thanks for your response.

      Absolutely beautiful. This immediately caught my attention when I came to your page because in fact one of the first things my husband said to me -at a luncheon, and when I began to realize we were connected was "Wanna Dance?". Now of course we were in a restaurant at lunch time and there was no music. There was a significant meaning in all of this and indeed we "danced" all of our life. One of my favourite sayings is "Dance as though no one is watching - etc. etc. ending with and "Love as though Heaven is On Earth". I started a chapter in my new book about my husband with this very saying. And your story reminds me of that.! Thanks once again for this beautiful hub.
