The Glorious Dance of the Griot Song

like spoken words
gifted with intelligence
of each movement, each

pause, each silence
we are the incantations
of creation

perpetually
in the making, surviving
on sounds pregnant with

soulful intentions
of singing to celebrate
the artifact, while

setting its beauty
in motion in an embrace
of love that marries

experience to
experiment in & of
our benevolence.
