Mag 92,11/14/11 4 Minute Evolution

The dance was hard
beginning on all fours, to crouching
in silhouette trees,
Stretching to launch stone spears
whole bodies sweeping, for walls of cave painting.
The beginning of we- digging, cutting, crushing,
Straining to raft, onto hauling of sleds 
Assault of mountains,scanning for invaders-
The lunging of a gallop,and sword fights. 
Somersaulting into forwardness of wheels;

cartwheeling to soaring airplanes
the rise of rockets;


When you finish, ending in this pose
you are breathless-
it cannot be held still;
they had to project the photo, behind you on the wall.

That was some dance!
I guess in the timeless universe, our evolution would be lucky to hit 4 minutes.
A very well thought out take on the image I thought.

A great little journey, well crafted - I bet it took some time to write.

I came up this cartwheels too, though you went much deeper. Cool write.

I like the way this builds.
And I like where it lands, too.

It evolves quite nicely. The last line has me puzzled, though. : )

YOU, Izzy, are a true Aries. I'm not, but I know one when I read one.
