Trip the Light Fantastic with You

Your motion in that moment
Is sinuous, movement neverending.
You dance the figure for infinity,
Sketching out your theory of everything
With your body. A prism you have become,
Your silhouette a rainbow as light explodes through you.
I am a spectator at the beginning of the universe
As time stops. Before my heart beats again.
I am a spectator at the beginning of the universe,
As with the electricity of your touch
I come to life; I breathe again.

Luna, Luna

Day 23 and a poem that I found I had written on the back of an old envelope and forgotten all about …

Luna, Luna impossible,
Girl dancing by the light of the moon.
Dancing with stars in her eyes,
Barefoot and wild – my beautiful Luna
Hoping the morning
Doesn’t come too soon.

Last Dance

Another year of blogging nearly gone by and here’s a poem from last November to kick off my annual review of some of my personal favourites from the last year.

And the lights go down
Night after night
And the orchestra
Go home to their beds.
And in the early hours
When I am alone
I wonder
If I should’ve asked you to dance.

And The Weaver starts spinning
She’s got you in a daze
Trapped you from the first moment
That her hips begin to sway.

Her motion beckoning you nearer
You’re longing for her touch.
It’s like your breathing is failing
And falling is not enough.

You

The dancer twirls around the floor
Dancing for her own reflection,
Mirrored there upon the walls.
Why would she wish to dance with another,
When no one else understands the music’s call.
“Oh you pretty thing,” the music acclaims her.
The one and only, the belle, the dance desires her.
“Oh you pretty thing,” with every swish and glide,
The ecstasy, as the music rides her.

Two minute warning

It’s Day 2 of of the Review 30 for November.

Made of sticks and stones

Will we recognise the two minute warning?

Humanity’s last chance

To avoid our own destruction.

Will it be a familiar tune?

Like our grandparents would’ve known.

One to which we all can dance

As we pirouette off to our doom.

Will it be the sound of distant birdsong?

If there are birds still alive by then.

Will we recognise our last chance?

Have they already called last orders?

Are they playing our funeral march?
