The Forever Dance

It has been Their dance all along—Their communion, Their intimacy,

Love enfolding      Love enfolding           Love.

And I have been invited into the quadrille, the waltz, the glorious and shining ballet.


clumsy me, two-left-feet me,

stumbling, graceless me—

and hardly dressed for the occasion in these tattered, faithless rags.

Twirled and happy swinging,

embraced, breathless with joy

in heaven-sent robes,

in Spirit-scent robes.

. . . It feels like we will dance forever.
