Nature is feminine by nature
off the man keeps a step away.
Touch it not but do not sway
eye on to this butterfly
que sera, sera on the way!
Shofi Ahmed Jul 2018
Mortal earth is a shadow
nothing lasts here evermore.
The inside is a complete hollow.
Everyone takes a turn sway not
360-degree it’s a flute!

Come bask in the summer sun
     let’s slip out fly with the butterflies!
         While white fluffy cloud-swans  
              dip in and rise, surge and fly
                 up the rainbow arc sway away
                    come down the blue harbour
                       ambling along shady lanes
                           cast your glance treat your eyes!

Lush tree sways in wind,
Sun ☀️ sends cryptograms through it;
I am in their plot!
Though unaware one figures in the ever extending cosmic narrative

I want to dance with you
Our feet will move
together,
step by step,
with you guiding
the way
through moves that
we're making up
as we go

I want to laugh with you
as I stumble
and we fall
on top of each other,
barely breathing,
with aches in
our chests

I want to sway with you
as we clumsily climb
back onto our feet,
aligning our footsteps
until we're matching
in our paces,
with our smiles
spreading across
our faces

From dusk til dawn,
take me dancing

What’s it on my lips,
You want to taste?
What’s it on my cheeks,
You want to touch?
What’s it on my nose,
You want to smell?
What’s it in my ears,
You want to hear?

What’s it in my hair,
You want to pull?
What’s it on my neck,
You want to bite?
What’s it on my hips,
You want to sway?
What’s it in my hands,
You want to grab?

What was on my back,
You chased so well,
Thinking that in was just lust.
When, in fact, you’ve found
Love
Looking straight into my eyes.

There may be days the world
dances without me,
but I‘d rather sway
to a beat
I call my own,
instead of one of a song
my heart doesn’t know.
That was not my purpose.

Nor to tightrope across thin wire
over to somebody who
grew angry with desire,
but only if they had the lead.

You gripped my hand so tight
as we slipped away from the crowd,
I thought we just might
make it to the outro.
But here, now, dancing by myself —
it’s better this way,
rather than wait for someone else;
never fearing I will not be caught
if I should ever fall,
or criticized for following the rhythm of my heart.

You've got to have some rhythm if you're going to boogie down.
At the latest tango hotspot at the Roxy in the town.
The principles of foxtrot and the sways of swing will show.
That dancing with your heart will always make your passion flow.

When the bossa nova starts and the lady sings the blues.
The time is now to shake your hips and don your dancing shoes.
You trip the light fantastic, your shoulders shake in time.
Your fingers snap and feet will tap along to mambo rhyme.

The rumba stirs the frenzy of your heart in Latin beats.
You feel the crazy samba in the footsteps on the streets.
Your ready for your spotlight doing cha cha cha and jive.
You can never stop the lindy hop to keep your soul alive.
O on this red soiled path!
The drum beats
The bamboo flute
Plays
O my mind doesn't
Stay in doing work
O stay cannot I in my
Home
O the soul becomes
Sad!
O to the beats
Of the drummer
My heart and mind do sway!
Each part of my body sways,O
Each part sways!
O spring touches
The woods
Of saal and piyal
Trees
In the new flowers of
Khopai,O
In the new flowers!
O in the forests
Of mahua trees
The laughter
Of the mad moon
Falls down,O
O my eyes like whom
Will I see
Her at the
Turn of this path,O
O in her flying hairs
I would give her
The bulb hibiscus
Flower,O
O taking the blossoms
Of her necklace
She wouldwear
Flower rings
Her ears would sway,O
Her ears would sway
O to the gesturing beats
Of her dance
Someone would say
I love,I love ,O
I love.....O!

You act like everything's okay,
So I shall treat you that way,
Until the day you decide,
That you don't want to stay away.

It's alright for things to be this way,
You're not ready yet
I won't try to make you sway.


Even if I want to -
I can't make you stay.
