Learn to Dance, Little One

 

Dance in the shadows
little one –
barefoot and free
let the wind
kiss your hair
jump
dance
pirouette
for all the world to see
let your beauty free
for some day, others
will dictate the dance
you’ll strap on your shoes
and memorize the steps
but you have a chance
to lay your own footsteps
to learn the freedom
of toes dug in the earth
to feel your canvas
stretch beneath your feet
and dance to the music
of your very own soul
for hopefully then,
you shall carry it
with you always.

      I can’t help but think of my little ones – still at the first footsteps of their life. So much we have learned since then, haven’t we? No worries on the tears – as long as they had purpose 🙂 Love you much Seema.
