At a hundred beats a minute. Eyelids closed. Arms outstretched. Palms up. Feet flat. Chin skyward. The full moon rises.
At a hundred ten beats a minute. A slow whirling dervish. Clockwise. Three-count. Arms backstroke through the air. Bare feet draw Mother Nature up from the earth.
At a hundred twenty beats a minute. Eyes wide open. Stars dance. Drumbeat quickens. Forehead glistens. Clouds disburse.
At a hundred thirty beats a minute. The sky opens. The torso sways. A moonbeam reveals the naked soul. Moon Goddess applauds.
At eighty beats a minute. A cooling breeze dries the sweat. A smile rises from tiptoes. Arms encircle. Head bows.
At seventy beats a minute. Head bends low. Arms reach down. Clothing is gathered up.. Blessed be.
