Dancing Dragon

She danced to the music
twirling step by step
her little skirt spinning out from her body
like a toy top set in motion

Her eyes closed
lashes dark against porcelain cheeks
that were red and glowing as if lit from within

Happy go lucky
she practiced jaunty quick moves
hops
skips
bows
sashaying
this little show girl was
putting on quite a display
her joy was unmistakable

I felt grateful
for the gift of her dance
the vision of her
carefree performance
awoke a sleeping dance dragon
within my heart

I found my foot tapping
myself smiling
and soon
I too
was dancing with abandon

      Hopi Indian saying: “To watch us dance is to hear our hearts speak.”
      May we continue to find opportunities to dance in our lives! šŸ™‚

        Beautiful, Mary! I really enjoyed your poem and your reference to the Hopi Indian saying. To dance with abandon. I think, is the greatest expression of celebrating our lives and our gratitude!
