Love Dance

Love Dance

written by: Michelle Ayon Navajas

 

how do you tell time,
in seconds, in minutes, in hours?
for when you move, it is of no essence
you can speed up and slow down
and in between, time stops
my breathing stops
I watch you in awe, in admiration
time stops.

I fall in love.

how do you move over,
in specific lines, and specific space?
I can barely follow-through
as your body motions in perfection
I watch you in awe, in admiration
time stops.

I fall in love.

how do you exhibit force
in smooth and sharp movements
for you are strong even in
lightweight steps
you tiptoed still, in precision
I watch you in awe, in admiration
time stops.

I fall in love.
with you.
over and over
in time, in space, and in full force
I love you
as I love you move your body
in harmony
with time, with space and with force.
