The Hokey Pokey Tango
It's a dance this motherhood.
At once the most sublime
calling, an intense dance of
letting go and holding on,
a passionate tango of the heart.
And then there's the hokey pokey
dance. A discombobulated
foray of arms and limbs stumbling
to find balance in the midst of the mess.
Drty laundry and diapers a cacauphony
that disrupts the elegant stream of
movement performed flawlessly
in their laughter, their faces
swallowed in sunshine.
So we dance the hokey pokey tango
we tango the hokey pokey
because that's what it's all about!
