Choreographer

Choreographer

She plays with shadows
twirling them with her fingers
making shapes she doesn’t
understand       though
they are
but shadows, they dance–
she is too rapt in 
their movements to realize
the choreography is in
her hands.

Searching for Flamenco

Searching for Flamenco

The streets of Seville keep
their best secrets hidden in the dark


cobbled paths wind in stillness
I wonder where all the dancers have gone
cafes and restaurants throb with the pulse
of a late night soiree

the candles have burned down to stubs
but the servers will not turn out the night
until platters of paella and pitchers of sangria last

I ask where I might find a tablao,
to be charmed and mesmerized


taking directions, I walk into the soft beam
of streetlights through the tangled sleeping town
on the other side

it is so quiet—
what is tucked behind the old buildings
in a walled courtyard I can barely glimpse?

I walk inside—
ensconced in a shell
of darkness, burns the fire
of a woman, her back finely arched
she is attired in a ruffled gypsy dress

her voice reaches
into the desert…………

the man with the guitar plucks on strings—pulling me inside

I have arrived.

In the Moonlight by Neetu

May 26, 2022 by in category Poet's Day by Neetu Malik tagged as , , , ,

In the Moonlight

in moonlight's soft sheen
I bare all that I am

it's the sun's harsh rays
that send me scurrying
into dark caves and crevices
where I am enveloped
in the shell
worn and roughened
through years        and tread
of time's wheels,    cracked by

aches and maladies
with marks etched deep
in my self
