To the Taal

Bright, warm lighting 

Shine upon my nervous skin

Almost blinding me 


The beat of the fast music 

The Tabla 

The sitar 

The flute 



Without Thinking 

My feet move 

To the Taal

My hands change mudras 

To the Taal

My eyes move from side to side 

To the Taal


Going down to a squat 

My knees pop 

Jumping up 

My goyna moves with me 

Sliding back down 

My alta covered feet touch the ground 

Once again
