The Last Dance - A Repost


the 
swinging
rhythm 
was 
spellbinding
the 
pounding
beat 
was 
enthralling...
 
she slipped on 
her white 
nightgown
as she 
prepared 
for bed
but the music 
playing 
outside her 
room
beckoned her
to heed 
its call
listen she did, 
and more...

the 
swinging
rhythm 
was 
spellbinding
the 
pounding
beat 
was 
enthralling...

she stepped
into 
her red 
stiletto heels
and started 
 swaying
with her eyes 
shut closed
she finally 
let go
unaware 
of the eyes 
that were 
watching...

the 
swinging
rhythm 
was 
spellbinding
the 
pounding
beat 
was 
enthralling...

he knew 
she was 
still mad 
at him
but the 
lovely sight 
was too much 
to resist
 he took 
his chance
and took her
in his arms
their eyes locked
his gaze 
drowned 
 her anger
there was 
nothing left 
but 
burning
passion...

the 
swinging
rhythm 
was 
spellbinding
the 
pounding
beat 
was 
enthralling...
 
and so, 
together 
they slowly 
swayed
to their hearts' 
content
as if 
in a 
trance
they danced 
like
there 
was 
no
tomorrow...

the 
swinging
rhythm 
was 
spellbinding
the 
pounding
beat 
was 
enthralling...
 
unbeknownst
to them
their 
time
was 
running
out
and 
tomorrow
would 
never 
come... 

the 
swinging
rhythm 
was 
spellbinding
the 
pounding
beat 
was 
enthralling...

Bali’s Mystique


In an assiduous attempt to survive
Each single day of existence
We tend to forget we owe ourselves
A break once in a while
Until that headache persists
And vertigo sets in
As if to remind us that our brain 
Needs some breathing space too.

And so I was persuaded
By well-meaning girl friends
To go on hiatus in a faraway land
Away from it all, they said
On a journey with no expectations
Expedition of unfamiliar enclave
I closed my eyes and 
Started building castles in the air.
As soon as we landed
A sense of euphoria embraced us
Finally away from it all as promised
No deadline to beat nor
Persistent phone calls to answer
As if magic descended upon us
And the universe contrived to hide us
In this enchanted island called Bali.
One can’t help but admire Bali's
Mystical centuries-old temples on cliffs
And on water in the highlands
Mischievous monkeys standing guard
Ornate designs of wooden doors and trusses 
And of gods and idols made of stone
The alluring landscapes of terraced rice paddies
Serenity calms the mind as one absorbs the beauty of Bali. 

The roaring sound of waves filled the air
As we hiked steep rocky heights
Torrent pummeled the earth below us
As the sun set magnificently
In a horizon of glowing colors
Of red, yellow and orange
Nature’s splendid display is eternally
At its finest on this hemisphere.

An exciting part of the trip was our rendezvous with the famous Ketut Liyer, medicine man of Bali who appeared in the movie “Eat Pray Love” with Julia Roberts.

The Quest



an insatiable urge

this enigmatic quest 

a calling i cannot digest

profound yearning

gnaws at my core

until i can bear no more

yet this voice i hear

speaks softly like a song

whispering where i belong

a journey of sacred voyage

to the hills yonder and far beyond

i see no drifter nor vagabond

The Other Side of Happy

Happy and Sad Half Faces by Jim Dandy


happiness beckons...

a choice you have to make

no matter what the circumstances are

at the perfect time

it will all make sense



happiness beckons...

cast that smile up on the shore

the right attitude is your anchor

the best is yet to come

claim and embrace your bliss



happiness beckons…

yet you dwell on the odds

counting the obstacles 

instead of the bounty

that passed you by unnoticed



happiness beckons…

yet you live in the past

like a spurned rose

you wither on the vine

and idly wait for Gaia to claim you

Being happy doesn't mean everything's perfect. It means you decide to see beyond the imperfections.


"Count your blessings. Once you realize how valuable you are and how much you have going for you, the smiles will return, the sun will break out, the music will play, and you will finally be able to move forward to the life that God intended for you with grace, strength, courage and confidence." ~ Og Mandino


If I could wish for my life to be perfect, it would be tempting, but I would have to decline, for life would no longer teach me anything.
