It is a dance all writers perform at the whim of the muses...

Written an unknown number of years ago...pulled in 2005...dusted off today, to bring it back to life.... 

The Dance
 
here I go again playing with words
so stiff at times that even rhymes cannot give them grace
and then a trace of perfection presses for a new direction
 
not quite desired
 
yet so inspired it cannot be ignored
a two-edged sword
to twist the plot away from me
conspiracy of some feisty muse
maybe a ruse yet the fuse ignites
even excites me
 
until the symphony begins
 
the dancers spin and still I see the black and white beneath
the simple words bequeathed from sources undisclosed
 
no writer knows the giver, just the gift
 
forbidden fruit still rooted in the clay of millennia past
 
masthead of a journey begun
when thoughts were sung to tribal drums
 
they’re beating still to fill a need as old as life
 
and so I play
anxious to be sated
maybe even liberated by this                
exhilarating
infuriating
invigorating dance.

"...and then a trace of perfection
presses for a new direction"
how well that's said!
and indeed the entire poem is delivered with
wisdom and genuine insight.
Some dance indeed!

Love the way you dance, Debra. Invigorating to me as well.
I'm so glad you resurrected this rhythmic beauty. -gene.
