I BELIEVE GOD INVENTED DANCING
I Believe God Invented Dancing
Why should I think this way?
Have you watched tall grass sway;
have you ever noticed leaves
merrily respond to the breeze;
considered robin’s “bob and run”
as he searches for wiggly worm
or the dolphins’ graceful glide,
never straying to collide;
traced a butterfly’s pirouette,
just before it comes to rest
on a dandelion’s fluff,
still clinging to its ruff?
Even the stars of the night
shimmy and bounce in my sight.
There’s no earthly reason why,
in abandon, should not I
throw caution to the wind,
cut myself loose, twirl and spin,
raise my arms in ardent praise
for glorious dance-filled days!
