This Dance, Right Now


She said she had danced naked with him

never with anyone else

and felt more herself with him than anyone

the lamplight that bathed them both

made the space they occupied together

safe and flexible

made them both

more open to change

more instantly in the moment and fully present

more lovely as reflections

she a warm fire in his eye

he a still pond from which to drink.


In this changing room

of topaz light and impermanence

they found the heart of life

then fell

fast asleep

spent and amazed

all their questions

bits of ember

and ash

floating up

and away

without any



any fear.
