Life is a Learning Experience and so we will do the Dance.

We all Grow in Wisdom and so we take the chance...

As round and round we go, swirling, and swirling,

So as not to miss the Show.

We will walk that Extra Mile, for one never knows...

Where it might lead...and what New Experience we can weave,

While Swirling, and Swirling.

So Give me a Ray of Sunshine, Let me walk along

A Sandy Beach, while listening to the Roar

Of the Ocean's Sexy Beat...

As I hum My Favorite Song.

"Dance with me" it says, as it challenges me.

Hang out with me and let me Splash you.

Or do you prefer to Hang out with the Moon,

And count your Lucky Stars...Until you find

That "Special One" to make a Wish upon,

As you do the Dance of Life,

Swirling, and Swirling,

With your Lover Man.

      Ah go on, I'll bet your a Great Dancer Sally...I LOVE to dance and do it in my Kitchen when I'm alone with the radio on and Lover Man is reading. May we all do the dance of Life for at least another 99 Years, or so!

      Beautiful and fun! I'm not much of a dancer - literally, but luckily we can all partake in the big dance of life.

      ..I love your open mind and sense of wonder and fun, of course, and one of the major reasons why I was attracted to you as a writer and a living breathing person behind the pen... in the first place.

      What is it about the Ocean...As women, we are so in rhythm with it, Chatkath. Life allows us to Learn and Grow, thanks for Loving this Poem. I Enjoyed writing it.

      Beautiful Vocalcoach, I believe your Lover Man is just around the corner, maybe on a Beach! We will do the Dance of Life, Laughing, Dancing, Tears, and some Heart Breaks... But we do it till the day we can't dance anymore.

      Sweetie, Thanks for your Lovely words from such a Beautiful Lady...Lover Man and I are NOT perfect, but we always work it out and are constantly Learning from LIFE.

      Not Perfect, but Fun, Happy, and most of the time a Beautiful Relationship, Movie Master. We are a "Second Marriage" fight differently, but we so understand one another!

      I haven't found my lover man yet. Your magnificent poem makes me want to go out and begin "networking". Life is a this!

      And you are so on target with this is a learning experience. And just when we think we have learned a particular lesson, life gives us a refresher course :)

      Thank you for this hub. Gave you an Up, awesome and beautiful too.

      I love this b. "Of the Ocean's Sexy Beat..." is so perfect, I can hear it and feel it. Life if indeed a lot of learning, but then the alternative is not very appealing to me at all.

      Up awesome and beautiful!!!
