Fancy Dancers

Fancy Dancers
Colored feathers
Bells on their ankles
Drum beats throbbing
Louder and faster
As the men
Begin the dance
Swirling and whirling
Faster to the beat
Of the drums
Undulating singing
Like a heartbeat
Colors spinning
Seemingly out of control
Yet fully contained
Beautiful spiraling
As the drumbeats quicken
Powerful steps
Graceful moves
Fully in time
To the rapidly changing tempo
The circle completing
As the drummers
Create a final crescendo
And the dancers
Stop in time
