Ancient Dance (A Love Poem by Celestine Nudanu)


Ancient Dance
Under the baobab
We kiss and dance
To the rhythms of 
Ancient love drums 
Beating to alert us 
To the full moon, 
Winking in harmony 
With our frenzied steps 

Our bodies taut with energy, 
Glistening 
With the sweat of our longing  
Simmering  
With the heat of our desire   
Yearning 
For the cool languorous 
Breeze of the leaves 
To set the pace  
As we collide In a mystic, wondrous ritual
