Travel Haiku - Birmingham International Dance Festival (United Kingdom)


Birmingham International Dance Festival
the bellydance sweeps
us off our feet

Birmingham International Dance Festival
tiptoeing over the stage
the city mayor

Birmingham International Dance Festival
our torsos try to
outdo each other

Birmingham International Dance Festival
dancers take turn
to be audience

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
