Poem of the Week: Let's Dance

I mostly post my poetry first on Instagram, (unless it is a patron-exclusive poem). Then, each Sunday here on the blog, I post the poem that has got the most Insta likes.

If you’re on Instagram, let’s follow each other. You’ll find my account Orna Ross.poetry here.

The poems are inspired by photographs, sometimes taken by me, sometimes by others.

My most popular poem on Instagram this week was, “Let’s Dance”.

And now for this week’s poem:

Let’s Dance

Let’s dance to the music here playing,
let go of the noise in our heads.
For there’s nothing more worthy of dancing
than our love of the dance itself.
 
While we still have partners in waiting
a heart that knows how to be led,
let’s step out the steps that want stepping
and warm to the heat of their tread.  

Wherever there’s no place for dancing
life’s only a lockdown of dread
it’s time to skip out of our  sitting
twist a shimmy, flip heel over head. 

Oh, let’s dance to the music here playing
Let go of the noise in our heads.
For there’s nothing more worthy of dancing
than the dance of life dancing itself.
