FIRE DANCE

FIRE DANCE

A Poem by Evita
"

An attempt to capture the euphoria that comes from any form of dancing, especially with utter abandon!

"
DANCE

Dance like the raging fire
let it be your idol, imitate her
like the inferno in hell rages 
madden your senses and move


DANCE
Dance as though you were on fire 
let the heat permeate, cradle it's power
like the very core outputs blazes
flare your fervor and ignite

DANCE 
Dance as though your were the fire
take hold of your senses, then divest them
like the flames curling and licking hardly touch
quicken your steps and barely graze

DANCE
around the frenzied fire

DANCE 
you're on fire

DANCE
you are fire
 
Just Dance..

i have an admiration for the occult. The concept of 'fire dance' inserted into a poem is original and new to me.

There is a sweet rhythm going on here by your change of meters and use of vocabularies (e.g. 'flare your fervor', 'curling and licking' etc.). The latter are affiliated to fire which enhances the poem really well. This poem has an artistic way of encouraging the readers to limber up and be spiritual at the same time.

The use of the strong imagery and the personification of the fire itself sets such a vivid and intense expression of how this dance is carried out. By using such expressive language, while intertwining it with the emotion you experience from this form of dance, really engages the reader into something that otherwise might seem very foreign to them. I found the repeating of the word "Dance" to be especially effective, because it keeps on the continuity of the actions that are going on (in other words, although the fire plays a tantalizing, exciting and inextricable role, it is still only a part of the whole experience that is the dance and the dancer herself/himself).

And does not the fire dance so beautifully, love watching flames as they do seem to move like swaying bodies, I feel you do both fire and dance justice with your words.
Keep em' coming

Strangely this reminded me of that practice where widowed wives would have to walk into a fire? Whatmecallit?

This felt very authentic, vivid and classical, I couldn't help picturing various bharat natyam and Odissi moves!
