a dancer's performance~free verse~
Standing here, I am awaiting my cue;
I close my eyes to hear the piano.
Listen- the walls are singing while
my dress flows, swaying lightly.
My body floats above the ground
held high by my partner's steady hand.
Listen- the rhythm is passionate
echoing through the center stage.
In a sudden movement I feel alive
when a heartfelt tune overwhelms me.
Listen- to this masterful performance,
it pulls my talent to another place.
My flawless creation of dance
was polished with a graceful flight
Listen- to the applause within the crowd;
I flush from a standing ovation.
