*pirouette - Poem by Usha Pisharody

Flounce your tutu,
My Child,
Of Self confidence
Perched on the toes
Of the Faith in yourself!

I watch you
Dear One,
Sure that you
Can do it!

I urge you silently
Shed that fear...
And do the pointe...
Step up on your toes

Now!

Ah yes! Let your
Hands lift, so gently,
Gracefully,
Curve upwards.

And I hold my breath...
The first step-
Swaying, dipping,
A flourish...

And then,


You give me the magic
In that leap-
And the pirouette-
Spinning, and spinning...

Slowing...

Stopping.
Flushed!

Then you curtsy.
Your smile,
in wonder,
When you look at me

Says it All! !

And all I want to say is-
I told you so!
