Ba-de-ya, Dancing

It’s bright and glorious and

the poplars are singing.

He lifts his arms

an ecstatic composer just as

a crow caws a warning

flying directly overhead,

so we call Hello and Thank you.


the rustled whisper

of leaves as the music

moves through them

and now her sisters’ voices

emerge.  Three vultures

suddenly soaring in

o circles of delight-notes

in the bright blue sky-song.

The dancing of September

symphony messengers

making the welkin ring

the immense song we compact

into this one clear

afternoon-bell to remember

so all the tomorrows bring new soul-

music beating through us,

our nervous systems soothed

and vibrating with huge

connections and insights

wherever the breeze blesses us.

Inspired by: compact

And Earth Wind & Fire
