The Shadow Dancer - Poem by keith Durante

the sun slowly enters, creeps across my window sill
waiting an invitation, it remains quite still
I revel at it's warmth, almost like romance
opening wide the shutters, I invite the sun to dance

It explodes upon me and splashes across the room
in every crack and crevice, shadows dance upon the gloom
shadow dancing a ballet of classical lore
enticing me to dance as they lept across the floor

commanding the delicate balance of a Ballerina's grace
sunlight announced 'All shadows take their place'
my shadow mesmerized, appeared center stage
seduced by this alluring and passionate rage

enchanting all my senses, my shadow began to sway
responding to the touch of every golden ray
slithering and sliding to the rythym of light
a primal urge to heed this wondorous sight

I was Rocking and Rolling to the song of creation
this was no rehearsal, whispered my elation
Kings and Queens, all the Nobles and poor
were all dancing upon my kitchen floor
