The Leavers Dance

it’s a clear night
and there are no stars
I stopped here briefly
but never settled
the band played on
this ballet of the senses
moving in circles
a ballet for the senseless
the sun is setting
my eyes have looked away
this gypsy heart
soft shoe slow dance
aches for release
from a place not
worth dying for
wanting to go home
unsure of where that is
understanding it’s out there
somewhere silence
golden peace
but what’s worth crying for
there is freedom
moving gracefully
updraft lifting ready taking
spread my wings and soar
design got in the way
of desires calling
change direction stop
from falling
flying close
to close to the sun
drifting downward spiral
the band played on
by fate or chance
this waltz they called
the leavers dance
