The dance

Some see a fight between light and night

I see a dance

The more bright the sight, the darker the shadow of plight

The pendulum does advance

The melody's not wrong, all belong, it's the timing of your song

Listen to its beat then prance

In the throng, be strong, as you go along

Be in balance not askance

If skeptical, inflexible or too conventional

Your feet won't stand a chance

Let your response be intestinal, not just intellectual

Multidimensional is the dance

        Your key word there, for me, is 'balance' with respect to the 'intestinal' and 'intellectual'. Can't fault that, Soren - thanks for laying it out so clearly.

          Thanks Dave for the read and comment/ Your right balance is the key in life or a dance.

          That balance in life is so important in us, may we all have it.
