Perpetual dancers
Sea of 
Twisted trunks
No wind,
Air heavy like
Too many long skirts 
Or the pause 
Before bad news

I fall in love
With this reflection of myself

Their barren limbs
Reach to the sky

Supplication
Mirroring this longing

Stripped bare 
of pretense
Stripped bare 
of pride

Naked 
In their stark beauty
Silhouetted 
Against the vermilion sky

Dancers,
Frozen in a moment
Of worship

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
