Indefinable Grace!

Choreography of great pleasure
The leaps soar and subside
    
Clearness of placing
The sureness of timing
A delicate balance 
Standing with bent knee on one foot,
The other leg horizontal and downward
Drive the velocity and  force
With which her free leg deploys 
Its mass from the leg she stands anchored on
Her prowess and her dance instinct collide

  14. When I was a little girl, I dreamed of being a ballerina. I guess many little girls do the same. Problem is, I'm a grandma and I still dream of it.
    I love the pictures, the sketch and your words - all lovely.

  25. indefinable grace...?

    it is defined in your presence.
    it is found in the light which radiates from your soul~from the joyous expression of your words~and in the rapturous visions of art....
    all these you share, willingly.
    that to me is...
    Defined Grace....
    that is you :)
