Written after watching a couple ice skate….

 

Tall young man

Strong yet gentle

Gliding,

Moving gracefully.

It’s almost supernatural;

The rise and fall,

The push and pull.

He throws his partner

And brings her back in.

He twists her above his head

And supports her throughout the dance.

How beautiful it is …

How whimsical,

Magical

Mesmerising,

And tranquil.

How soft and delicate.

How radiant and grand-

The talent of the two,

The commitment and dedication,

The emotions

Entirely human,

The expression, the moves

Familiar like a feeling;

A vague childhood memory

Or dream.

Sad and happy,

Giddy yet elegant,

Timeless,

Intrancing.

I understand this,

I think,

Somehow, in

Some way I do

And you relating too

Or understanding all in our own way this story unfolding.

This passionate tale without description,

Without words

Only surreal  majestic movements.

The story is vague yet profound,

Ever changing and everlasting.

My heart is jumping for joy.

I feel it’s …

A metaphor of all the love stories that ever were,

The love of our ancestors

It's striving to express the purity, the indescribable

All of us one in the same in this one thing;

Love-

True love that never fades.

I feel this dance is

Expressing the peculiarities of love.

Both are afraid to be the first to say

I’m sorry.

Alas,

He’s pulling her in,

But she’s pushing away.

He’s growing weary.

She’s afraid,

But she makes the decision-

She comes running back to him.

They fight,

But it’s not violent.

They fight out of love,

They’re fighting to hold on.

Finally a sigh of relief-

Everything’s okay,

Because now they embrace-

They spin in a circle without letting go.

Time doesn’t matter here-

No, nothing matters in this moment

Except the love

That feels too real to be real,

But it is.

Right now

It’s more real than anything they’ve ever known.
