Breath of Fire--a poem

Breath of Fire

This is my rain dance
This is my sun dance
This is my ablution
my purification by fire
this is my ritual bath
the release
of all my desires

My belly flies
like a whirling dervish
a dust devil
across the desert floor
the door of my heart
swings open and closed
with every breath
always ready
longing for more

This is my mantra,
my yatra
This is my kumbha mehla
my pilgrim's journey
the pulse of the breath
like the pulse in my veins
saying my name
over and over
