SHAKTI

She dances for him
In the failing light
By the sea-shore
Waves beating
Breaking her heart
For the lover she loves

And he watches
Lost in the smoothness
Of her arm and legs
The curve of thighs
The flow of skin
Song sung

Together
Beneath the stars
And as she dances
They move apart
Distance spreading
So far and gone

Forever wandering
Looking again
For the sea shore
Lost among men
Lost among women
Strangers in streets

That cover the sea
Forget the song
Conceal the memory
Of the dancing self
Beneath the sky
But somewhere

She dances for him
In the failing light
By the sea-shore
Waves beating
Breaking her heart
For the lover she loves
