There’s a yearning to dance
And thus create a whirlwind
Yet the beloved is not around
To partake of the ecstasy
Because the only time given is the present
I did and do dance in the head – heart
When I pause for breath
There’s agitation of the head – heart
That time is limited
In the sea of timelessness
So I asked the beloved
Where do we go from here?
