Gypsy Dance.

Updated on September 4, 2011

Gypsy
eyes
catching
the reflection
of
the swirling
skirt that
hid
the legs
I'd come to
know
so well,
a fleeting moment
gathered
with both
hands and
stored
for a
rainy day.
I smiled
at her
youthful
twirls
and watched
as she
danced
the night away
defying the stars
to
outshine
her.

      I felt her every move, I was the watcher and our eyes caught, then there was enchantment, she was my gypsy and we moved to the rhythm together. I loved your descriptive verse my friend. Well done, pure and artistic.

      Beautiful poem...being a gypsy is hard. The rhythm in this poem is a great tribute to the beat of the drums and the bells in the dance. Your appreciation shows in the art of the music you created with your words. Great hub.

      Thank you once again :) Despite what some say "reading your poems is like falling downstairs" I know the music is there for those who have the patience and the insight like you to find it :)

      I'm reading you second time and I'm overwhelmed by your poetic pattern. You can wonderfully create stupendous images from few words.
