Nervous Dancer

She has little fame,
jitters at her name.
The act begins.

She enters the stage.
Then her practiced grace
flows through her limbs.

Her thin form creates
an artistic frame.
And the dance ends.

  4. Peter - I hadn't really thought of it that way. More of a pre-dance nervousness replaced by post-dance accomplishment.

    thoughts - Thank you!

    Laurie - I'm glad you got a good picture :)
