Fire Dance

Foot over foot,
Arms dancing upon the night air,
'Round the fire's hot core,
Without thought, without care.

Body unbound,
Upon waves of heat,
A dancing of flames,
Hands, hips, and feet.

Lost in the dance,
Where water and flame meet,
Incarnate desires,
Tied to drum's beat.

Reside in the flames,
Reside in the waves,
Reside in abandon,
As fire behaves...
