 an elderly man

wearing a white cowboy hat the

band

braided with colorful beads

a

feather inserted angled

back

one

beaded strand

trails off the

collar of his

shirt …

…..

 music

wraps around his

fingers

elegantly poised

each held

uniquely his

wrists bent ninety

degrees backward

the

palms of his hands facing

forward they

arch

left to right

 in perfect time with the

music …

his feet trace

elegant

cursive

patterns onto the

street …

a

line dance of his own

creation …

…..

the street fills with

kids and

adults

an energy mass that grows

larger and more

powerful

as time slowly

advances …

until movement and

energy create a turbulant

storm of dancing

bodies   …

…..

adults form the

wind currents of the

storm …

…..

 kids moving through the

crowd

form powerful

eddies …

separate

powerful

compressed

energy …

…..

small tornadoes

 within

the

swirling mass …

*****

a boy and a

tall dark haired

girl tug against

each other for

possession of the boy’s

yellow

parka …

…..

his face blushes

RED …

a

furious tornado

flashing lightening within

the

moving mass  … !

…..

 a slender girl with long

legs and knobby

knees wearing a

 flared white

skirt

leaps high into the

air her

neck held stiffly …

…..

her white

skirt flares into a

parachute or a

white gardenia

at the apex of each

leap she

 bends her knees …

lifts them up beneath the hem of

her skirt

 they disappear …

for a brief moment

she appears

suspended in

mid air

floating …

…..

a vision of

her etched

within the minds of all who

watch …

…..

her face enraptured …

lost in a world of

 purest

joy… !

*****

the surrounding crowd

watching the

dancers:

dogs

people resting on their

palms resting back on

street curbs

people

in

portable chairs or

mothers with

children and

strollers …

become

 an orbiting mass of

planets and

asteroids

around the

hot sun of dancers …

*****

further beyond the planets

  boys with

needful

eyes shuffle alongside

middle aged or

older men and women

wearing

sad searching

expressions … …..

 the

dead planets …

space rocks

searching searching searching

for Life to inhabit

them …

*****

outside of this universe of

movement

longing eyes

dimly lit … within

 the

darkness of

store front entranceways

watch

from their own

inner space …

…..

joyless expressions

 self contained within a

boxed world

trapped within the

slavehood of

themselves through eyes

too

terrified to join the

energy mass …

*****

gazing at them i sense their yearning to be part of the

CREATION … !!
