I’ve found a

rhythm which

helps me with


also en

hances the

vast world I

know and see:


I hold the

hands of my

friends and my


lifted by

music and

kind loving



We travel

one two three

through life’s di


dancing with

gusto through

fear and ad



Some of you

might like to

dance in my

footsteps the

waltz is such

fun and it’s

    Inspired by Matthew Pullar’s post below. Take a look:

    This is so much fun. I used to write waltz poems a lot, and by that I mean I put three syllables in each line. I think you did a great job with the rhythm here.

    Me again. Again WordPress is playing me for a sucker, so writersblogq, or nobodysreadingme, are the names by which you know me better.
    I struggled with this at first, I did. I’m still a newcomer to the world of poetry, so cut me some slack
    Then I got it. I read it with the correct cadences, and it worked.
    I’ll get better, I really will. In the meantime, expect me to make a complete idiot of myself.
    I’ll get there. I’m just having to adjust the way I read, and at my age that’s not easy, but so far it’s being a rewarding experience

      Hi nobodysreadingme. I’m glad you persevered. I have done a lot of dancing in my time, so the waltz beat is a friend to me. It has pushing power – is relentless, but pretty. One of the other poets I read on here is J Matthew Waters at http://jdubqca.com/. He has a great reading voice and posts up voice recordings of his poems. Maybe take a listen. We all have different ways of using our senses, but I think they can be stretched to make things richer for us. I’ll be back later to visit your pages.

    There’s a lovely lightness to this poem. Nice work.
