Swing Time

Freedom –
it’s a door that’s always open,
yet nobody passes through.
Some try to make themselves
small enough to squeeze through, others
big enough to smash the door and burst through –
neither realizing this door swings on the edge of a cliff,
opening into a fathomless abyss that freely swallows
big and small alike and burps up ecstasies of light!
The only obstacle which seems to block our way
is nothing but our own conviction that we are
something capable of being bound or freed,
or that there is some special threshold
which we need to cross to become
what we always already are,
and yet all the while:
we’re the thing that swings, sings,
echoes throughout this endless arcade,
swept up in the breeze of a song called love,
played as a Swing tune, tuned to our twin hooves,
tapping us tongue-tied out of time’s tease, turning us,
twining us, free as you please, across the dance floor
of this ever-fresh now while we swoon and spoon
to the pulsing sound of each precious heartbeat
marking our rhythmic moves and waltzing us
in tandem twists and twirl-a-ways of light
through this exquisite night of shimmer
and shine, sheared at last of the weight
of our burdens, free to glide and slide
together in unabashed delight!
