The Devotional Dance

is a rebirthing of sorts: eyes loose shut, crouching on hands and knees rocking back and forth

arching —no growling: just prowling and breath. a feeling into the body, sensing its stories and songs

dusty blackened bare feet, soft body, sweat-stained skin, untamed bushy hair

these sensual moves summon the instinctual: feeling the glow; slow, slow … moving as the body wants to move.

no direction from outside—the golden darkness leads

the animal inhabits the skin and remembers its wildish ways: and in this quiet stirring, I am released.

(The Empress card from The Field Tarot)
