https://www.poetrysoup.com/poem/daydream_dancing_899433

I am the diamond      that breathes in your hands; The fine lace to sway in      breezes through windows      as I crumble dedans la pirouette; The cyclone, the earthquake,      implosion of power      in your arms.           Spin me a room,           Weave me a rainbow,           Pull me to you and           push me away.           Burn me, absorb me. I tumble, trip, fall,       to be lifted by you,      elevated, levitated; Finest rags, softest fringe,      ripple around      last evening light; Raise me slowly      on tiptoes; Rescue me, scream my name      loud.           Spin me your laughter,           Catch me, don't drop me,           Pull me to you,           never push me away.           Dance, don't stop. Never stop. *** May 10, 2017 Copyright © Darren White

Your fantastic poem melds with the music and becomes one with the dance, inspired by the art of both poetry and dance Darren! I could feel your love of both in this remarkable poem! 7 ; )

Please stay seated Darren and let me ramble. I will forever say and believe poetry is all about expression and emotion. And yes, the same applies to dance for dance expresses emotions and feelings as well. However, I don't have to tell you that for you know that better than I. You most beautifully and most powerfully expressed yourself here with emotion being present and felt. Congratulations on all aspects of artistry here Darren. You are amazing. It has been an honor. Keep expressing
