My Stage

Happy National Poetry Month from Stance on Dance!

POEM AND ILLUSTRATION BY LIZ BRENT

My stage:

Red rug

Inlaid with gold

Protective symbols of

“Stay” and “Play”

 

My audience:

Dear Divine.

 

I am the night

The night is I:

 

Limbs

Ground

Reach

Gather

Strength

Release

Worry

Trace

Shields

Draw

Back the bow

Stretch

Time

 

I am the

Golden arrow

Arching forward

To meet

The Earth

 

I am the

Spear tip

Heralding change

In the

Air

 

I am the night

The night is I:

All a-glitter with

Star

Explosion
