Leaving the Door Open

I keep accidentally leaving the door cracked open

I keep “accidentally” leaving the door cracked open

I keep leaving the door open

And through the crack I can hear the world raging outside

I can see the sunlight dancing on the trees

Shimmering on each leaf like a love story

begun and ended in a flash

I want to dance too

But the door is only cracked

And I don’t know how

Where do you learn the secrets of being known

Of opening up

Of dancing

Did the sunlight teach the leaves to dance

I don’t think so

Dancing is in their roots

It is part of the light

It is in their somewhere

Part of me too

So I leave the door cracked a little today

Who knows what will come of it
