Pink Buds and Flowers, Bush Garden House, Salem, Oregon, 2009

You taught me to dance
perhaps not on purpose
but by chance.

We two lives were bound together
by vows that tether
and blend forever.

The beginning steps we made
halting, faulting, sometimes crazed
creating stops and starts

Our bruised and hurting toes
left our tender egos
cautious about the next steps.

Still we clasped each other
embraced the choice we made
and danced on bravely.

A step forward followed
then a sidestep ensued
with the next step subdued

With joy we whirled
or in frustration twirled
only to each other return.

Now here we with much practice
step and sweep lightly
across life’s great dance floor.

Whether by choice or chance
or some divine providence
it is you who
taught me to dance.
