talking to the dance

listen to the elders, 

whispering their chants

listen to the hooves, pounding on the plain

listen to the birds, prophesying rain

jiggles the chimes limbs hanging
a thousand sound waves invade

She held a seashell to her ear
But heard no soothing sea,
Just choking gasps of life caught in
An ocean of debris.

a lone wolf whimpering prompts the night
or could it be day?...
