One year on
26th December 2008
For friends and fellow tango dancers
Training week by week,
Sandra, my mind retains your words , my body fails to follow
"ankles together" - but my knees can't meet -
There's that critical gap between my legs and feet!
laughter flows, week by week we meet and train,
it's sometimes a seemlingly hopeless game,
but we work as one, and I love your class
- To you, Sandra and Loyd, I raise my glass.
At last, to dance.
Deeper, quieter, more beautiful than before,
Moments of life perfectly still in time,
a dance drawing tears, moving me to the core,
with the ecquisite pattern of our feet on the bare floor.
So tell me once more,
How can we know the dancer from the dance?
