La Danza

twilight
“Twilight”, Acrylics on Canvas, Acaxochitl Cavazos 2015

The drum beats-

My feet hit the ground and the seeds fall down

 I hear them calling tenderly-

 Copal fills my memory

Of many offerings and sometimes tears

When truth in my movement

overwhelmed me.

 Soon the dance takes me

 The trees and the leaves become one glowing color

Its light pulsing through my hands like

A water fall to my feet             

Life sustained once again.
