In regressing here this evening
Thinking over days gone by
Living life with dignity
Taking stress in stride
I've found that unimportant things
Were given up to chance
For details are a memory
I settled for a slow dance
To taste the heady passions
To smell the blooming flowers
To climb a tree when I chose
Get soaked in April showers
To take a trip to Europe
Having never left my home
With a Gypsy spirit antsy
My curiousity roamed
I met the rich and famous
I felt the desert air
I tripped the light fantastic
Because I have no fear
In case you might be wondering
Why I took such chance
Those details now are memories
I opted for this slow dance.

I have been reminded recently, Susan, that I have been given only one life...and hat the decisions I have to make in this life are mine to make. if I donlt take them, then I'll never know what I have missed. So slow dances and chances are on my agenda...memories in the making. Thanks so much for reminding me...and taking that dance just slightly ahead of me paving the way with this terrific work of art. I feel your colors dancing too!

A Gypsy Spirit can be a marvelous thing, and provide some marvelous memories; and I love that graphic, Susan.

The strands of a waltz shift through my head as I was reading this, the waltz is romance, love , passion all rolled into one and your poem captures this. I can still recall the first time as a young boy of no more then 12/13 with sweaty palms I waltzed for the first time with a pretty little girl. I can remember the last time I danced with my mother before she passed away, I can remember the first time I slow danced with my wife, the Father/daughter waltz at my daughters wedding. All landmarks that until I read your poem I did not realize how important they were to me. Thank you Susan

Isn't it grand to pick and choose what and when we feel comfort in remembering. Mind and soul combine to present us with a soothing peace of spirit. This poem is very optimistic, and graceful, realistic and authentic..........written with intelligence, and heart.
Here's to all the best of melodies...........

When we are fearless and spontaneous in our approach, then we experience life in all its immensity and glory
You have subscribed to this hypothesis, and you can savor at will all the rich and diverse experiences you have accumulated on the road of existence...
Splendid write Susan

When you sit down to compose you must allow your mind to go into a deep well of memories and dreams and experiences, then you begin typing out the words. Then you begin to work magic with your fingers. Then you out perform simple poets such as myself. You NEVER write a bad one . . . How the hell do you DO that?
