Ballet is Poetry

Ballet is poetry. . .
And both share in
The magical movement
That is defined as art.
As brushstrokes blend
Hues onto a white canvas
And forms begin to
Appear in the glory of a
Golden pas de deux dawn,
Fingers of light stream
Through parting clouds
Capturing the divinity
Of the death of night
Into days beautiful birth.
Fluid motion, chassé. . .
Balancing earth's elements
In an alluring assemblé.

    I don't know much about ballet but I do know when I read good poetry. Well done Connie.

    This has elegance and grace Connie, the dance so equisitely blends with the words of poetry and the two have a life of their own. Beautiful! :)

    I'm sure that the wise Martha Grahm would respect your sentiments Connie - splendid metaphors in this poem - I think what ballet and poetry have most in common are emotions in motion - J.A.B. %

    Hi Connie...I must concur with the theme of this wonderful piece and the exquisite metaphors...the blending of French terms makes it all the more elegant....Hey, will u check out my ballet poem...I wrote it earlier this year and is intitled, "The Whimsical Bunny." It is listed as ekphrasis bc it refers to a watercolor painting my daughter painted for an art show...congrats on your Clerihew work...what a great contest! :) gwendolen

    Connie, must stop by your magic much more often and that's what this is, magical free verse that, by the time it reaches your heart, is all perfectly rhymed---love it----and would go perfectly with Cyndi's new dance blog---like it was meant to be entwined.........
