Her Name by Janine Canan

She is dancing her Dance
and everything changes.
This is what is meant by Impermanence,
buddhist for God.

She is dancing her Dance
and nothing remains.
This is what is meant by Nothingness,
atheist for God.

She is dancing her Dance
and everything is beautiful.
This is what is meant by Changing Woman,
navajo for God.

She is dancing her Dance
and planets whirl around the sun.
This is what is meant by Allah,
sufi for God.

She is dancing her Dance
and her forms are never-ending.
This is what is meant by Shakti, Energy,
hindu for God.

She is dancing her Dance
and the Dance is She.
This is what is meant by God,
human for Mystery.
