Dabke: a poem by JJSK


Hand in hand 
          Shoulder to shoulder
                            Winding line
                                 Stepping and stomping
                                              in celebration
                                             in strength
                                        in solidarity
                Rhythmic movement 
                               in unison
Generations gathered
                                    Pride of a people
Dabke ~ Jocelyne Smallian-Khan

This poem, together with some other dance-themed tidbits, will be appearing in Jocelyne’s forthcoming chapbook Dancing Words.
