then she speaks

then she speaks

On her lap
papers shake
wrinkled, twisted
curled and unfurled,
slightly damp
from energized hands.
knees bounce,
heels glance floors
in erratic rhythms.
Above the waist 
everything remains calm,
stillness before silence
before storm,
then she speaks.

Poetic Asides

The challenge was to write about an event.
