Friday Poem: Lord of the Dance

Friday again already! I almost forgot…

Lord of the Dance

 

Lord of the Dance,
Shiva!
Creator and Destroyer
in one-
Dance for me,
Show what I  must
destroy
in order
to create anew;
Teach me to create
and dance destruction.
All that is born must die,
An endless cycle;
And that which is not born
Does not die.
I am that, Lord Shiva;

Now she’s a living legend…
