Happy Valentine's Day
I am really just a tambourine grab hold,play me
the pulse of the drum.
with a myriad of expressive gestures echoing ancient traditions.
your body, mind & spirit toward a vibrant sense of sensuality,
a deeper level of well being.
awakened inner creativity.
in the light of the ancient moon…..
Behind the veils, Intoxicated with love
I dance the rhythm
of this moving world.
It’s a drum and arms waving.
It’s a bonfire at midnight on the top edge of a hill,
This meeting again with you.

Danse Orientale is the name I use for the movement

A voice inside the drum (said), I know you are tired...
