olympic rhythms

London 2012 Olympics Opening Ceremony

a frisson of hope
touches the air with movement
breeze kisses their cheeks

◊◊◊

 sovereign flags unfurl
and dance to drummers’ rhythm
celebrate youth’s light

◊◊◊

it cuts through the crowd
like a knife of intense fire
slash of hot music

◊◊◊ 

waiting for torchlight
heartfelt embraces
copper flowers aflame

◊◊◊

hearts held captive
by olympic performance
exuberant joy
