Dance Your Heart Out

The beater poised up
Drummers' eyes lock
Lead drummer nods
His beater drops.

Dancers watch
Ears tuned in
Feet ever-light
The beater drops.

Drummers join beats
Song echoes --sweet
Memories flow
All beaters drop.

Regalia flows
Fluid with grace
Dance with the beat
Dancers' feet hop.

Drum and dance
Honor the past
Elders' wish
Dances won't stop.

Drum and dance
Sing the future
Sing for Elders
Dance, dance nonstop.

  1. Sheri,
    Your poetry is as fabulous as your photography. I am such a visual person, and I think this collage is spectacular! The colors and fluidness of the collage is moving.
    Thank you for sharing!
    Kind regards,
    Tracy
