Drop dance

The dancer gets on with things
Till she drops them by the side.
A final dance enacts her ascent .

She uses lonely stars over roof
To map where she drops things,
So she collects them in descent.

A daughter’s dance shall depict
Where mom drops by the way,
In beautiful gestures to the sky.

(Mallika Sarabhai pays a dance tribute to her classical dancer mother Mrinalini who passed recently)
