The Sun Dance

The Sun Dance

A shaft of light

from an endless afternoon

splayed on a bedroom floor

like a childhood setter

a lazy, loving presence

half on a ratty carpet of clashing color

Specks and sparkles dance in the light

Dandruff of time

stirred by breath

and the opening of doors

Each mote has its moment

Struck and excited and set afire

by energy born

in cataclysmic collision

That whirled up from the sun’s belly

Until it had no memory

and was cast out

Arriving the moment it left

to be here

caressing dust

whose moment has come

Into the light

Through the light

Out again

Coming to rest on worn furniture

To tremble thence

in envy

To a longing refrain

RC
