Passionate

The fluidity of motion that is dance;

It’s a compilation to enhance

The artist’s stance on beauty,

Their perceived duty to life!


The gestures of the dancer

Are movements of pleasure!

Conveying to the masses

Freedom of expression!


In the midst of her silhouette

A mimicked dance so perfect;

That flawless interpretation,

That compilation in motion!


We gather together on daunting floors

To perform a series a whirls,

Leaving the audience in awe,

Mesmerized by the ball!

I am intrigue by the photo of the woman musician juxtapose with your poetry. The artist's stance of "defiance" to duty and convention in the pursuit of free expression :)

Nice observation SilentReed. I was drawn primarily by the woman's face, her facial expression and body language. I somehow get the feeling form that image that her music is flowing from her and out through her instrument as opposed to just simply playing the instrument. Much in the same way how some people dance by going through the steps but the truly good ones use dancing as a means of expressing themselves and their being.

Yes ....There is a beauty in a woman unmatched , when it shows everywhere , her dance , her intensity in the concentrated playing of an instrument. Her dress swirling , her eyes closed. The delicacy of everything about her features. And that painting shows it all. Awesome job! Did you paint that ?

Thanks ahorseback. As for painting that, I wish I did but my talents don't include those that deal with colors and a canvas.
