his drum…

6 Nov

i think it is because of his drum
that he is close to the earth, so deep
he is nearer the sun than each one of us.
and when i am with him,
i am home.
his drum,
it is strange.
and awesome.
as if lions joined with gazelles
to birth a royalty
so fiercely powerful, it is elegant
with a fire strong enough to breathe mine
and feed me.
and a rare, honest confidence
that stares through his eyes
to inspire a sincerity
i find in his smile.
and when he trusts me with it,
i am home.
he has a drum
unlike any other i have ever heard.
he moves me
and i can dance to him
like no one is watching.
