One step two
’round the ring,
forming a net for dreams

Silk strands
only the most delicate
will do

Feathers hung below
gifts from psychopomps
of the more marital sort

Just in case
because you
never know

One step two
’round the ring
careful knots, carefully placed

Dewdrops adorn
set here and there
shinies to draw the eye and the mind

One step two
quicker now
night comes

Beads rattle
bone and shell, coral and claw
tooth and truth

One step two
speeds the dusk
sky the colors of flower fantasies

One step two
and back to beginning
final knot, last strand set

One step two
catch a dream
and it pulls you under

Begin again
’round the ring
one step two
