In tandem

A raqs, a twirl of the sufis
Looking up, hand pointing to the heavens
To receive their bounty
While the other hand sways towards the earth
To give
           what it has received.

Thus they continue in their circle of ecstasy:
Feet held steady
            by the earth
Head wrapped in clouds
            by the heavens.
