Dance with me,

I want to be your partner

 

What shall it be?

What is danced

Under a Filipino

Moon,

 

Call it “Buwan” or

“Bulan”?

 

Something

Spanish or more

Ancient?  Or

Worked out

Today?

 

As long as we

Might touch

 

Dancing now,

Because as the

Orleans song

Is sung,

 

And love is all around

 

Maybe spouse-sun

Will dance, too,

Who might be

“Arawa”

 

In lore, married

With the moon

 

All nature dances

To (what is called

In many places)

The

 

Harmony of spheres

 

Earth turns

Sun smiles

 

Gravity collides

With magnetic

Fields

 

In joy of being a

Universe

 

Day ends, merges

With jazzy dusk

 

Ready to step

And slide under

The rhythm of

Choice selection

From a heavenly

Combo:

 

Night is falling,

 

And I am calling you:

 

Dance with me

 

Touch my hand

And, with me,

Glide
