Dancing Hearts

  • Posted on December 22, 2010 at 6:50 pm

I want a dancing heart,
One that leaps at small miracles.
A look in the eye,
A snowflake in mid-air,
The cabbage moths playing together in summer,
My cats sleeping dog-piled in twos,
The crown of my sister’s head asleep on my breast,
And the softness of her hair under my hand as she trusts me and rests…
The little things are miracles.
Feline heart-beats and purrings…
My heart dances when I notice these seemingly mundane things
Because they are precious.
In quiet moments, I feel God dance with me,
His arms around my heart.
Quietest, deepest communion…
Softly dancing, like lovers on a ballroom floor lost in each other,
Each listening to a mutually pounding heart…in tandem with their own.
Miracles do happen.
This is my dancing heart.

“My lover spoke and said to me, ‘Arise, my darling, my beautiful one, and come with me.
See! The winter is past; the rains are over and gone. Flowers appear on the earth; the season of singing has come, the cooing of doves is heard in our land. The fig tree forms its early fruit; the blossoming vines spread their fragrance. Arise, come, my darling; my beautiful one, come with me.’” Song of Solomon 2:10-13 NIV
