The Cosmic Dancer (I)

February 1, 2022

During Jake Millar’s uplifting and intimate memorial (KRC, November 29th) in Christchurch last week, part of a poem, The Cosmic Dancer by John Roedel was read out and shared with all those present in the Church and on the livestream.

“… be desperate to live and to

love a little bit recklessly,

caution is a luxury

for those who have

endless days to be patient

– we don’t

– everything is temporary …”

We’ll post the full version next week – it’s a reminder to all of us …

“… it’s all about time

– that’s what makes

it such an adventure …”

I hadn’t come across the poet, John Roedel – a Facebook blogger and, in his own words:

John Roedel – Poet, Writer, Cosmic, Storyteller, Terrible Dancer.  Facebook conversationalist – with the Divine “Hey God. Hey John” and a new book – which I’ve just ordered “Remedy.  The Adventures of a Cowardly Boy & His Heart That Loved Him So.”

And check out his first book “Any Given Someday”.
