I’m trying to remember where I’ve read that Ezra Pound felt the most memorable prose is kinetic. Eudora Welty seems to be saying something similar with ‘Movement must be at the very heart of listening.’ (One Writer’s Beginnings) She goes on to speak of the inward voice she hears when reading and writing: ‘the voice of the story or the poem itself’, its cadence. In Africa there was never music without movement, often dance; the whole body sang.

Ideally, both content (a kinetic image, say) and form (cadence, rhythm etc) should move as one.
