the breath of her shoes

was thumping

through soils


it hangs suspended between the moon

and your name

there is music, she waltzed

with the stars and the wind


forming a ritual

she circles,

slowly now

with you, this moment –

gripped with passion.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

“Ain’t It Funny” is one of my favorite music videos of Jennifer Lopez. That video was inspired by this poem. You should see her sensual moves on said video. :P I love dancing to the music of J. Lo, and also that of Shakira. The line breaks were done so it could be read with rhythm too.

Beautiful poem. Dancing may be deemed as poetry of hands,fingers, feet and limbs.
