The Alchemy of the Dance

A rhythm rises through us

the drumbeat of the Earth, through fire

burning, pounding

Unleashing the movement of our souls

expressed through sway of hips

and bodily undulations.


A serpentine syncopation

encoils us

possesses us

As the serpent begins to move

to a cosmic rhythm

and the world around us falls away.


There is only rhythm and movement

and an energy that bursts forth in waves

of sound and light.

It sinks in as deeply as venomous fangs

as the alchemy of body and soul and ecstasy

is attained.
