Waltzing with Love

This poem was originally published for the Christian Science Sentinel online, December 17, 2021.

Moving in uninterrupted harmony 
in Soul’s time—Soul never missing a beat, never stumbling out
          of line;
in Love’s time—Love whose steady rhythm pulses through.
You are the dancer in Love’s waltz.

If you’re ever alone and watching, with wishful eyes, the dancers
          swaying before you,
Love, drawn to the suffering heart, beckons,
          “Come, dance with Me.”
This hand of grace, this call of Soul, dissolves the weight
          of stubborn resistance 
and lifts you to your feet, gently whispering, “I lead. You follow.”

Pain released, fear absorbed,
the anxious drumbeat of the heart is stilled with the steadiness
          of Soul’s rhythm. 
Boldness strengthens the timidity of your steps. 
Resolve quells the hesitancy of your movements.

You are Love’s dance.
You are Soul’s rhythm,
moving in uninterrupted harmony.
