Dance of Oneness

She danced as if she was free
white skirt whirling
against gravity’s pull
like clouds in a blue sky
on a windswept noon

Her fingers moved gracefully
the motion articulated
with the feminine sway
of wrists and elbows
serpentine and divine

Her feet twirled and tapped
rhythmic like the tabla
beat alongside harmonium
the floor given to her sway
as she partners with the stars

Her earthen hair whipped about
with her sapphire blues closed
yet the soft smile on her lips
spoke of surrender to divine
as the music drove her movement

She danced but was not free
bound to earthen ties unseen
a mourning deep within her soul
mirrored within my own depths
as my soul danced with hers

    True, there are ‘earthen ties unseen’ that hold them tightly so that they may not go free. Beautifully expressed.

    I adored the layers in here. I think the most flattering way to describe a woman, any woman, is to explore her many facets, her highs and lows, and finding a balance between trying to understand her, and just merely beholding her in her complexity. You have accomplished that here. And you included a little bit of you in it. It was indeed a dance–with the mind, with focus, with possibility. Such a romantic piece. Kudos.
