Before the last dance…

Have you ever looked at children on a carousel?
Or listened to the rain hitting the ground?
Have you seen the faces of those who lost, for those it cost.
Ever followed the elegant flight of a butterfly?
Or looking at the sun as it went towards night?
Or the chasing moon shining silver on every night.

Take a quiet dance, but not to fast…not so fast. Life is short.
The music does not last.

Are you going through your days very fast?
When you ask “How are you?” Do you hear the answer?
When the day is over, then you lie in your bed with the next hundred tasks running in your head? Tomorrow already planed.

Take a quiet dance, but not so fast. Life is short.
The music does not last.

Have you ever told your childen, we’ll do it tomorrow?
And did you not get to see where it hurt? Sadness spread across faces…deprived of time in an endless sea of time.
Have you ever lost track, lost good friends because you did not have time to just call and say “hello”?
Spend a few presious moments of joy to carry you on and see the differance.

Take a quiet dance. Not so fast. Life is short.
The music does not last.

When you leave like that, you lose half the joy of reaching it. You can enter today…now…right now…be here and stay here…be forever present…time has no end.

When you worry and hurry all day, it’s like an unopened gift – Just thrown away. Grab what is yours and don’t let it slip away…nothing really stops…not before we ignore what’s keeping us parted..

Life is not a race.
Life is not a daze.
It has it’s own kind of pace.

Take it easy. Listen to the music before all the songs and dances is over. Time has no limit…no end…but the power for all to spend.
Take those dances…small step…follow the music…be here to the very end.

About jachso

Hey Destiny Poets. I live in Denmark about 90 km from Copenhagen and works in Roskilde as a teacher and mentor. I'm probably not like most men of my age and yes I am aged 50 years old. I've tried a lot of jobs without finding what I'm passionate about. Writing, I have always loved and I was probably just 14 years old when I produced my first poem. I have not yet been released some of my poems, but I hope it happens one day. I just finished a novel which I would like to have published, now the time and talent show whether I have the ability to write. Poetry has a special meaning for me and this is where I really feel at home. My life has sometimes been marked by many losses. In the mid eighties, I lost my fiance at the time when the accident happened was pregnant. She lost control of the car and drove herself and her child, who was on his way thereby, to death. It has really made its mark on my life and way of thinking. In the late nineties, I had problems with my back and had to seek other avenues to support myself. I finally decided to enroll at university and was admitted to the humanist line. I read philosophy, science, psychology, journalism and history, but philosophy and psychology is my major interest. I thrive today in the RUC aka Roskilde University just 25 km from Copenhagen. My job is to guide and teach, and it is a job with speed and that gives me a lot again. I have two collections of poems ready to be released, if I can find a publisher who will publish them. I have no children, it would obviously be my lot in life although I have tried, but luck never smiled at me that way. If you have any questions for me so I hope you just ask away all you want, I'll respond as soon as I have read the questions. With kindest regards from Jan Sorensen
