    Your poem shows just why so many little girls dream of floating above the stage on point and tutu. As you say, it is something about the effortlessness and grace (that these little aspirants soon discover to their horror comes from hours and hours of practice and dedication) . Something too about the 'translucency' and the facelessness of the grace. And vulnerability is there too, in full measure - the emotional tension that is required plus the enormous physical effort. Your final line sums it all up rather beautifully: 'My Ballerina is a martyr for her art, and a saint among the flock'.

    Thanks for sharing graceful poem. Love, Allie ♥ ♥ ♥ ♥
