Dance the sun awake

Under the hardness
of burning stars
she dances.

Eyes onyx black
deep pools of melancholy

A smile that slices night
from dark to inky blue.
Red shimmering veil
flashing skirts
leopard tails….. and claws.
A maw of golden glimmer

Rattle beating rhythm
sparks coalescing.
She sings dawn into
expansive sky.
dancing the day alive.
Raking out
the amber ashes
rekindling the sun
