The Dance…

The Dance
The Dance…the impassioned salsa

The dance, inherent in each soul,
flows like a torrid river,
arms rolling like waves,
feet snapping to the beat,
hearts pounding to the rhythm,
as dress fabric swishes, rises and falls
to the time, the soul of the salsa,
and faces beaming with joy,
transfixed by the pulsing,
hypnotic swells of joyous music,
shouts in passionate stabbing voice,
to call the dance
the incessant movement of souls
united in fervent expression.

How I love their passionate hearts,
immersed in life’s giving,
so precise their stances,
their sharp and ardent prancing,
all to those congas, rapping,
those guitars in staccato plucking,
vibrant ecliptic thrashing
too emotive, too evocative to resist;
and onlookers feel the beat,
stamp their feet and imbibe each move,
as the floor sways like a sheet in a bluster,
as all energy mustered
delivers this perfection of movement,
this raw, sensory salsa.

    Thank you for the wonderful poetic dance. Enjoyed this. The muses that inspire must be having a ball and dancing and dancing for I too was inspired to write about dancing.
