Evening Dance

By Susan Hendrick

Tonight, at the magic hour,
I’ll be joining the hummingbirds
Taking my shower in the misty spray of the watering hose
Dancing bare breasted up the rainbows of sparkling water beads
Arms and legs open wide
Stopping in mid-air to make love
Water rivuleting down our bodies
Skin and feathers shimmering
so bright the colors have fused together.
