The Two-Step

I’ll give you my best to dance with you,
We all have gifts,

Some can sing with poetry,
Others can heal with a smile,

Others of us can make money,
Others listen genuinely,

Some live as eagles in clouds,
Others attend to details,

Unable to tie my shoes,
Forgetting to cut my hair,

To be in your presence is to be cared for,
Two steps quick, two steps slow,

My dear, may I have this dance?
To try to win your heart slowly with patience,

I may not be the best dancer,
Or the hottest guy on the floor,

I am not the smartest or a poet,
Just a simple man looking for love,

To listen to your heart silently,
Dancing with you sweet rose,

Is to be given peace and tranquility,
A friend who cares,

Quick, quick, slow, slow,
Let me learn how to walk with you,

In harmony and with love,
I’ll give you my best to dance with you.

About kayaerbil

I am a Berkeley educated chemistry Ph.D. who is moving into the area of working on developing appropriate technology for communities that are subjected to socio-economic oppression. The goal is to use simple and effective designs to empower people to live better lives. Currently, I am working with Native Americans on Pine Ridge, the Lakota reservation in South Dakota. I am working with a Native owned and run solar energy company. We are currently working on building a compressed earth block (CEB) house that showcases many of the technologies that the company has developed. The CEB house is made of locally derived resources, earth from the reservation. The blocks are naturally thermally insulating, keeping the house cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Eventually, a solar air heater and photovoltaic panels will be installed into the house to power the home and keep it warm, while preserving the house off the grid. A side project while in Pine Ridge is a solar computer. I hope to learn about blockchain encryption software for building microgrids. In addition, it is an immediate interest of mine to involve local youth in technology education.
