NaPoWriMo 2020 – Day 15: Dancing In The Rain

Today’s prompt is to write a poem inspired by your favourite kind of music. Here goes, very loosely interpreted as always:
***
Breathe in
with the clash
of the cymbals
and then out
as the drums begin.
Let the patter
of your feet
lose themselves
in the patterns
of the music
of the rain
as they rise
and fall, pausing
like a runner
at the crest
of a seventh hill.
Let the patina
of red earth
be washed away.
Breathe in
and out, and dance,
Begin again.
