October Dance

Into the ocean

Dancing with my maiden at hand

Reveling in life

Toes in the sand

A dark and starry sky

Ocean air sea salt permeates

Eyes open wide

Open heart to appreciate

The gift of attention

For all to benefit and partake

Is often not realized

Another lonely soul mourned at the wake

So touch a soul with kindness

Caress them with your glance

Forever live without denial

Forever’s kiss may have no chance

A perfect storm of memories

The October dance begins a new day

Tucked away and remembered

How long are we here?…very hard to say
