The dance

Bodies alert

and smoothly moving,

delicately gliding,

forming arcs in space

through strength

and through intimacy

as close

as lovers embracing

on a beach

who are enthralled

with the scent

and shape of

each other.


Through simpatico

and repulsion

they lift and

fall together,


through the rhythmic force

of bodies tense

and lithe,

to become

a new symphony

of creative

and urgent energy

formed together

as one force

sculpting the moment.
