Screen Dance: For Rahani - Poem by Alfred Kreymborg

Its posterior pushing
its long thin body
a procession of waves lifting its head-
a green caterpillar:

Its roots digging and drinking,
the sap driving outward and up,
shaking its yellow head-
the mountain top of a tree:

Idling along in the blue,
an easy white holiday,
swimming away towards the rim of
the bowl- a cloud:

Dipping and twirling,
Soaring, floating, following after-
a butterfly
