TRIBAL MUSIC

tribal music
in the night
star-filled sky
fire light
new stars born
rising sparks
tribal music
in the dark

tribal music
heartbeat rides
primal rhythms
full moon tides
drums provoke
poetry
tribal music
deep in me

sail upon
sea of stars
Venus calls
out to Mars
lovers till
morning comes
tribal music
tribal drums

tribal music
leaping flame
voice of night
knows my name
darkness hides
right from wrong
tribal music
ancient song

This, unlike the recent poems I have posted, is intended (and was from the start) as a song lyric. There is music in development.

Oh, and the third stanza there works as the chorus, the rest are verses. More or less.
