This Drum

You sit 'round this drum
Hide drawn tight
Over fat belly
The beat extends from
Earth's heartbeat
And we the dancers
Snake-like spiral
To your chanting
There is no question
As mud and greenery
Seeps between bare toes
That we are all connected
This spiral
Like the Fibonacci sequence
Unfolds the universe within ourselves
We become a tightly woven circle
Outsiders cast their eyes away
Unwilling to join in
Pretend not to be equally moved
But I am still lost in the drumbeat
The scent of the earth
Each ray of sunlight
The sound of your chants
The taste of sweat
The colours of this vibrant circle
The feeling of grass beneath my feet
A heart filled with unity
