August by Lizette Woodworth Reese 

No wind, no bird. The river flames like brass.
On either side, smitten as with a spell
Of silence, brood the fields. In the deep grass,
Edging the dusty roads, lie as they fell
Handfuls of shriveled leaves from tree and bush.
But ’long the orchard fence and at the gate,
Thrusting their saffron torches through the hush,
Wild lilies blaze, and bees hum soon and late.
Rust-colored the tall straggling briar, not one
Rose left. The spider sets its loom up there
Close to the roots and spins out in the sun
A silken web from twig to twig. The air
Is full of hot-rank scents. Upon the hill
Drifts the noon’s single cloud, white, glaring, still.

Hi <<First Name>>,
August is my favorite month, as I can feel the light shifting and the quietness that happens right before the change of seasons.

In celebration of my birthday and others' August birthdays, I am offering a 5Rhythms pop-up dance this Wednesday evening, August 24th, in Mill Valley. I am excited to dance in person on a Wednesday night again!

I hope we can reconnect to a deep sense of ourselves and each other while having fun dancing to some of my favorite music.

This special event is free and donation-based in support of Syzygy Dance Project's outreach programs--no contribution is too small. Please pre-register as space is limited.

Since we will be indoors, and for safety concerns, please take a COVID test on Wednesday before coming to the event.

To join us in celebration:

With Love,
Sylvie, and the SDP Team

FYI: Let us know if you are donating only–not planning to attend the event so we can keep track of the available spaces. Email us at if you are only donating.
