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,
messages of hope and awe
into the darkness of midnight
to last for eternity
long after our own light fades.
