Dancing Dakini [Poem]

Dancing to the rhythms of me
the playful song and the flute
the beat of the drummer and the song’s
pulse

The Echos of the memories carried away
on the movements into emptiness
the times have called on me to dance

Dance into the moments’s emptinessdancer in red
these sorrows and these pains
these difficulties
and these disappointments

so that the one who I love now
knows well
the dancing Dakini in me
is our love’s new fire

The new moments are happening,

Occurrence moves the events in time
and the dance of the Dakini remains in play
the energies shift and entwine
while I know my heart and yours
so well beating in rhythm divine.
