To Stretch Your Wings

To stretch your wings
and soar
is truly a gift
from God
and scary as all hell.

To dance alone
swaying in the kitchen
jitterbugging down the hall
twirling in the garden
is still to dance.

Lift up your voice
and sing
out LOUD
off-key is okay
so long as you sing.

reaches in
takes the pain from my heart
chews it up and spits it out
and leaves my ribs aching.

The rhythms of love
a sultry dance
undulating, gyrating
leaving you breathless.

Live, love, laugh
dance and sing
and soar
this is your only chance
are you gonna take it?
