Embedded within a period, a time, a place
And always moving in its space
Witnessing the joy upon each face
Woven like the most delicate lace
Never at odds with the human race
Harmony of soul and base
Seeking to lift us whole
Exacting no earthly toll
Leaving us with the wonder of all mystery
Transcending all lives, all history
Bringing with it the choice
With or without voice
Music raining from invisible clouds
Forming drops silently aloud
Each with a new composition
An invisible celebration
Of so much inspiration
Reaching us all in fascination
It is the modern day dance
The poet’s line in cadence
Rolling in and through everyone
Leaving no language undone
