Slow Dancer

by Elizabeth Trew

flows abundant and mellow

intertwines the grape-vine
undulates the sky-line
inhales deep invocations
exhales polyphonic fusions
unravels her country

opens the quick-step
enters the flamenco
loosens the fox-trot
infuses the salsa
releases the rumba
embraces the marimba
unfurls the arabesque
celebrates the spring

slows, catches her gifts
sweeps the last dance down to the bass line
inclines on a grace note
ripples the ocean
