A Sunday well spent sharing the magic of Dance with these endearing kids at the School for the Visually impaired children @ Pune .
Getting set to begin the Cha cha cha …
I went to teach these kids in my spare time
And came back with learnings for a lifetime .
I went there with a dance lesson to impart
And I came home with a gladdened heart
I reached out to hold one hand today
And I was surrounded with tiny arms in sway
I shared with them some fun and glee
And I got in touch with the spirit of dance in me
I understand they may not see my face ever
But their memories are now my hearts treasure forever.
These are a few children in the circle of love
Who cannot see but live happily in the now
For them time is in the sound they hear
Before you arrive they can sense you near
Life is a vision they imagine and sense
Their every movement is real without pretense
They have their insecurities loud and clear
But its their spirit of resilience that makes them dear
Every step in their way is a test of skill
But they march on with steel in their will.
Yes I am grateful to interact with them upclose…
To sense the happiness that’s within us, if we chose!
