By Honour Stahl 

circles, hips, tummy, dips 

step flick 

mind slow, eyes closed 

body moving 

like wind and water 

twisting, burning 

stopping, going 

fingers touching 

dancing from the bottom up 

earth following 

heart dropping 

down and down and down 

circling ’round the core and back up again 

every breath deepening 

travel up and up through my toes 

circles, hips, tummy, dips
