Whirling Dervish

A mystical dancer who stands between
the material and cosmic worlds.

His dance is part of a sacred ceremony
in which the dervish rotates in a precise rhythm.

He represents the earth revolving on its axis
while orbiting the sun.

The purpose of the ritual whirling is for the dervish
to empty himself of all distracting
thoughts, placing him in trance; released from his body he conquers dizziness
