This day

is tie-dyed velvet:

Sequined blue blinks below,

milk swirled turquoise above,

Bald Eagle arcs over

undulating sunburnt pink hills,

Red-tailed Hawk swoops above

evergreen shadows that

shimmy under shining sun.

    What an amazing poem!

  9. As I read this, I think of the troupe of teen-aged belly dancers, fully-clothed and completely elegant, in a small-town Founder’s Day parade, this morning.

    • Yes, the bikini tops are a rare thing in most troupes, and the body control is impressive (particularly the belly, of course) when done well. 🙂 Personally, I tend to be the comic relief, I think. 😉
