River~Dance



Heart drops


With a beat that shudders bones.


Spears of light slice thick theater darkness


For clouds to roll in, envelop the space


With bold breath,


Thunder in whispers.


The rumbling takes shape,


Skimming the surface where feet will


Strike gold and green


Like flint to wood


And explode,


Icy fingers of fire igniting skin


And limb.


Every movement's electric,


Every heartbeat's a cry,


Pain and pleasure wrenched free,


History unmoored


By song.


And across the sea of frozen faces,


Everyone


Burns the same.
