EN ESA PAUSA BREVE…

A BRIEF PAUSE….THAT REFRESHES!

Me entregan tus silencios el fulgor de las ondas
es un sonido dulce que se hospeda en las hojas
del chopo solitario. O el azar que deshojas
en la luz del ocaso: partículas redondas

que escalan el suspiro por todo lo que ahondas.
Y me llega el aliento de aquello que despojas:
una luz que se tiñe de nubes pelirrojas
y son igual que un beso que grita aunque lo escondas.

La suavidad del aire dulcifica la ausencia
y los deseos vuelan al nido solitario
para crear el sueño que aviva la memoria

haberte retenido cual divina presencia
es instante gozoso como un don literario
que se queda en el alma para afirmar su historia.

And clear skies prepare–

Some sunlight would help us feel warm!

Overcast clouds and drizzle

Would anyones spirit fizzle…

But light from one’s heart

Rain clouds do part,

Thwarting the most evil missile.

Sometimes we forget to appreciate the simple things in this go-go-go world of ours. As such, when you take the time to simplify, it’s very refreshing. I know this is absolutely true when it comes to dancing. Your basics are the only things that will be able to set you above other dancers. Many very strong competitive couples fail on the basis that while they may have a lot of flash and skills to demonstrate, they lack the clarity of strong, well-practiced basics. This is true of all styles. Couples like Arunas Bizokas and Katusha Demidova, Tony Dovolani and Elena Grinenko and Tomas Mielnicki and JT Thomas built careers and became champions on the basis of their basics. I love complexity to death but if it’s not supporting your basics in some way, it’s not worth…
