Dance of the Sea Anemone

A few weeks ago, I joined a belly dance class with a group of lovely ladies. We are learning a dance with flowing arm movements. Mari described us in this dance as a sea anemone which is a perfect description. Of course it had to be a poem. Enjoy the poem and celebrate your wonderful body.

Dance of the Sea Anemone

Tide in
Tide out
Flowing arms
follow undulating luscious bodies
Rise and fall
Breathing
Alive
Together.
Sea flower
Wild flower
Tribal flower.

Lucky coins
chime across
Divine hips.
We are one
in movement
and presence
in the maternal dance
of the sea anemone.
