Brigid in the Blogosphere Poetry Slam

This poem by Judith Laura is posted as part of the 4th Annual Brigid in the Blogosphere Poetry Slam, instigated by Branches Up, Roots Down. "Labyrinth Dance" was first published in the second issue of e-journal Poemeleon along with a link to the music (scroll down to "Tsakonikos") usually used today for this dance.

Labyrinth Dance

Our arms are twined,
our bodies tight.
In wonder we lean into the line.
Our arms are twined.

Our bodies tight,
we move as one,
threading now towards time’s ancient home.
Our arms are twined.

We rock as with the same spine,
drawn back to love’s secret shrine,
together in the moon’s glow we wind.
Our arms are twined

so close we flow in the light.
We wander far without fright,
such clear vision we’ve no need of sight,
our bodies tight.

Our arms are twined,
our bodies tight.
Our dance leads deeper into the night.
Our arms are twined.
