MoonDance

Moon Dance

I sit cross-legged

in the tall grass

it waves about my shoulders

dusty stems

growing ripe with the night.

Breathing the night air

full of dreams

I lie back

and stretch my emotions

open to the breeze of summer's welcome.

A halo of fuzzy light

surrounds the moon

hanging above me in half-realized glory.

In the midst of a field of darkness

surrounded by the noises

of damp and happy creatures

glowing streaks of moonlight

illuminate the imperfections

and make them whole.

I dance whole-hearted

in the tall grass

it caresses my skin

gilded stems

glowing brightly with the night.

Hi, I just thought I'd stop in and get to know you a little... I started from the back and worked my way up through your archives (a few, anyway)... Good to know you!
