Offering

.
.
Through
The darkness
I whirl
On and on
Beyond
Caring
Beyond
Your dream
Beyond
Fatigue
Beyond death
Beyond
The Sun’s
Scream
I dance
Our duet
Alone
The lonesome
Wailing
Violin
Calls me
Faster
And faster
Long after
The stars
Have fallen
Into dust
Forever
I whirl
One hand
Raised
Gathering
Words
Unknown
One hand
Dispensing
Glory
Blessings
A conduit
For Mystery
I dance
And I dance
Beyond music
Courage
Comes shrill
Through
Bird bones
Beyond myself
Beyond
The almost
That was
A life
That was us
I am
Whirling
As a spiral
A gyre
That is
My offering
And my heart
Beats
And beats
My love
Carried
As a gift
By the drum
To the
Source of
Light
And I dance
Whirling
Beyond
All
That is
Beyond
Myself
I am a
Being of
No hope
The drum
Calls me
Home

Your Dream

.
.
Awake,
Sleepless
In night,
I am,
The Fiddler’s
Dream.
Never sleeping,
The Fiddler
Dreams,
Eternal Song.
The music
Lives as,
You and I,
Breathing
Life.
As resonance
We merge,
Waves converge,
Propagating
Beyond darkness,
The empty
Never.
Alone,
Stark in
Moon shadows,
Tireless,
I dance
Your dream
Awake.

Black Star

.
.
For you, my touch was cool as a flower petal,
Now I hotly burn.
I am the unknown flames of liquid metal.
.
I burn, I burn, I burn!
Back away. Stay away.
It is not for you that I burn!
.
For you, drunk with love, I once danced,
Now I hotly burn.
Grief wild, madness flames have advanced.
.
I burn, I burn, I burn!
Back away. Stay away.
It is not for you that I burn!
.
For you, I once joyfully could fly.
Now I hotly burn,
Nothing left, I am flames licking the sky!
.
I burn, I burn, I burn!
Back away. Stay away.
It is not for you that I burn.
.
For you, I allowed myself to long.
Now I hotly burn.
Dancing black flames write my song!
.
I burn, I burn, I burn!
Back away. Stay away.
It is not for you that I burn!
.
For you I loved, always from afar.
Now I hotly burn.
My flames shall burn forever as a black star
.
I burn, I burn, I burn!
Back away. Stay away.
It is not for you that I burn!

Dance Slowly

.
Will you dance slowly
In the Nwa Swamp Lannwit
Drifting in the water woods
While Loa whisper an kachèt
Chante dòmi chante dòmi
Where sleeping is a danger
And unaware one sinks forever
No shadow left alone to mourn
There is danger in renouvèlman
Springtime sweeping winds
Manman Latè does her
Prentan netwaye kay
There is no romans dous when
Slow dancing ak swirling opaque wind
Only malaise and listless
Rèv ak volonte passing
While working nan lajounen
Come dance slowly in
Dark Marekaj Night
Trees all know byennèt tan kap vini m ‘
Though ou pouvwa vle  sunlight
And someone else to find you
While Loa gently sing
Chante dòmi  chante dòmi
Chante dòmi  chante dòmi
I shall whisper my own words
I am here I am fanm pwòp tèt ou
Beyond the range of hearing
Only trees know me
Only Loa see me
Apzanteur danse naje vole
Dance slowly slowly in
Nwa Marekaj Lannwit

Mad Sister Songless Circle Dance

.
.
My one-eyed one-toothed three Sisters Gris
With their banshee wild-woman screaming
Banging drum greeting here at home in me arrive
They’re whispering yell shrieking sister secrets
Of mayhem and death that none can survive
We are the wasted and useless and ugly
Unwanted together we gather singing nightmares
While circling ever spinning vertigo circling dance round
Gyrating and cramping in a choreographed seizure of no care
Un-rested and crashing my sisters and I we are dancing
And quietly silently ululating dancing aloud our dissonant
Hopeless eternal unheard Mad Sister Songless Circle Dance
