Poetry is more than words

It is song


and beat

a movement

of dance

of jigs

spins and reels

old and new

coming together

rhyme and meter

of voice 

a passion so deep

in language not understood

but felt

breath funnelled 

through instruments

evoking sounds

through hands and feet

Rock n Roll moves 


through ears to heart

hips mardi gras en force

from them to us

and in between 

a party begins
