Step two three

Step five six

Poise my girl poise

Listen to the rhythm

Feel it in your bones

Step step step…..

My dear you have two feet

Don’t let the right be cajoled by the left

Control my dear control.

On and on it goes

Hour after hour

Ever ready for the next exam

The yearly concert

A living automaton

Responding to the calls

Point, step, sequins abounding

I bow to acclaim

Years ahead of my class

A protégé

My dance lessons

All ten years of them

Success, trophies multiplying

Proud parents boasting

Prouder teacher basking

Miss Marie Claire.

I was theoretically correct

Technically brilliant

But I couldn’t dance.

All creativity expunged from me

I reacted to commands

I knew every call, every position.

I wish I had learned to dance.

Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. One of the many exciting things I've had the honor of doing is writing with an E. African team that is developing elementary curriculum for African children. As a writer, it is a thrill to help children (on all continents) who want to learn. I've been part of the blogging community for more than 10 years. Some old timers may remember the award winning (2011 Twitter Shorty ) blog community - One Stop Poetry. I was the co-producer of that fast growing blog community. I am a published writer, poet, artist and photographer. I have written, as well as edited, for periodicals, radio, blogs and fellow writers. There are many facets to this moon - thanks for stopping by.
