Walk Talk Dance Sing

author's note:

"Life is a dance."
                        -- Johann Strauss I


Our therapists have told us
the painful blessed obvious:

it's much easier to sing
than to talk--

easier to dance
than to walk.

But I guess I needed to learn
from my own experience:
the challenge of walking
and talking
can be greatly exhausting

but then to sing
and dance
gives me new breath.

Thus, I know now
it's best to dance
and sing and dance
with every step

and though I often forget
I am reminded

whenever I choke...
whenever I slip.
