SONG OF DANCE

Like David, the music sways my body to dance, my arms reaching heavenward

Your love, O God, tickles my feet off the ground

My heart soars beating like a drum to the Promised Land

Your grace lifts me higher and higher

Sweeter than good wine, better than gold or diamonds

Moving to and fro full of joy and hope, there’s nothing holding me back

I can flutter and fly like a golden butterfly

Nothing compares to your love

Song of Dance – Only you can satisfy!

The harp sways my body to dance, my arms stretches heavenward

O God, your love tickles my feet off the ground

My heart beats drums to the Promised Land

Your Grace lifts me higher, sweeter than good wine, better than gold or diamonds

Moving to and fro, there’s nothing holding back, fluttering like a lady bug

Your Love – Song of Dance satisfies!

NONRESISTANCE

A Free Verse Challenge

Inspired by Erasmo Leiva-Merikakis

Compassionate Nonresistance

When in battle with evil, vindication seems the immediate quick solution.

There is a better reaction.

‘By not resisting to evil’ will surprise the adversary and extinguish its evil intent solely  by an outpouring of compassion and forgiveness.

That’s called ‘turning the other cheek.’

***

“In the blink of an eye everything can change,

So, forgive often and love with all your heart.

You may never know when you may not have that chance again.”
