When Poetry Dances
Author: Pamela O'Brien


Graceful phrases
Pirouette on the edge of the paper
Leap across the page
With a purpose

Tender words
Tip-toe back and forth
Leading into what will be
The final twirl

Gentle pauses
Suspended in mid-air
While the audience
Holds their breath

This is the first time I ever saw love...,Dance


This is one of the most beautiful poems you have ever presented in my opinion. I feel the words and see them come to life, so delicately and honestly so, very refreshing.

Your words Remind me of the little bits of dust that became little balerinas which danced upon the stage of a warm, sun's ray.

Excellent and very, very delicately, sweet.
