in the dance


we are one

chained communication

not manacled, locked

in meditative mantra



submitting to a

deliquescing lexicon

how does my heartbeat replicate


this song? how do my limbs know

how to sing along?

fingers mimic intricate design

i am triangle, ribbonesque


wrapped within a miracle

of sun spots, ink blots, euphoric drops

and kicks, surrendering skin

to a polyphonic chant


rapt in melody

molten, pouring into remedy

nothing else matters

but community


we are river we are rain

we are tidal waves of bass

in between, overhead

kaleidoscopic feathers


the weather here is gorgeous

we are fortified


dining out on sunshine


we dissolve

washed in the grace of good company

liniment, balm

we are lightning in arc


strings on a harp

plucked by fingers of a maestro

we are disco we are rave

we are save-me congregation


and my smile lights the morning sky

twinkles with the stars

we are venus we are mars

we are earthed

once again

in the dance

we are one

We are One

Thank you Graham. It was inspired by something a friend said earlier this week.

Laura, I'm not an aficionado of your work by any means but for me this is one of (if not the) best works of yours that I have read.
