There Are Lots of Ways to Dance

“If I Were” by Mary Oliver

There are lots of ways to dance and

to spin, sometimes it just starts my

feet first then my entire body, I am

spinning no one can see it but it is

happening. I am so glad to be alive, I am so glad to be loving and loved.

Even if I were close to the finish, even if I were at my final breath, I

would be here to take a stand, bereft

of such astonishments, but for them.

If I were a Sufi for sure I would be one of the spinning kind.
