Her feet float above the stage
as if carried by some unseen force.
From my view among the generally admitted

    i saw a photo of a ballerina that i knew, but i didn't know she was a ballerina until then. what beauty i saw in that photo and now in my friend. That photo was in black and white, but your descriptions of sun and burning, that photo will never be black and white again. (Report) Reply

    That is very true, my true respect and admiration for your Ballerina, sir! And for each other ballerina they all are working very hard.
    It may be not the light of stage to keep them going, sir, but maybe the love for beauty, the love for movement, the love for being able to connect music in symmetry with own centers, balance, and words with the tip of their toes, for the love of fly, they can even grow wings: I watch the little kids how hard they try to keep up with the boring abc of warming up. But at the end of the lesson when they are given freedom, oh dear, you can see butterflies and birds, winds and rainbows coming out of them, then years later, here we have grown ballerinas on stage to show the magic of children hearts with well worked body teaching us love. You may see your Ballerina as a martyr sir, I understand...she is not alone, in one way or another, maybe we all have to pay a price if we are given a power of gods: the purest form of inner beauty: power of love. Thank you. (Report) Reply

    I am so glad you invited me to read this poem. Like being invited to a fine ballet of words. The physical and spiritual of dance and writing captured. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Three times I had the lust to kill,
To clutch a throat so young and fair,
And squeeze with all my might until
No breath of being lingered there.
Three times I drove the demon out,
