Show mercy

Light plays and dances
  on the walls, through the trees
Just a glimpse of contrast
  coming and going, fading
Returning to what it is
  to show mercy, like a dance
Full, robust, playing across
  the floor, shuffling feet old and
Unsteady yet still ready with
  one move to show grace
Bumbling, hitting toes, the partner
  forgives, just to be moving one with
Another in this community
  of shared space, sound, fun whirling
Spinning, falling, headed in the
  wrong direction, but we don't stop
Point out the faults, we go on
  in wonder of movement together
Delighted at the ability to play
  with others who show such grace
