Poems from Midnight Strike

Our Celestial Dance

I wrote this poem for Why Poetry? the Joel Fallon Scholarship Fundraiser, and performed it on April 24, 2019 in Benicia, California.

Our Celestial Dance

Art is the sunshine

that nourishes our souls,

breathing wonder into the mundane.

Poetry is our home planet,

birthing a thousand moons

that orbit in a celestial dance,

and we are the stars,

lighting up the universe

one flicker at a time,

collectively burning

messages of hope and awe

into the darkness of midnight

to last for eternity

long after our own light fades.

The full show filmed by Constance Beutel.
