Ekphrastic Challenge: Day Twenty-Two

For Paul Brookes’ Special January Ekphrastic Challenge, Day Twenty-Two, I’ve responding to KR “Star Dancer” and CO28

Star Dancer

Like a kiss from the universe,
the night sky caresses her soul,
she feels it, she hears
delicious whispers from before and ever after,
the light of a thousand voices—
deep bass, viola, and piccolo—they sing,
with the voices of birds never seen, but known,
to her.

Wing-like her arms lift,
her leg extends, bends, a twirl, a leap—
but still earth-bound,
she dances to star-music, every night,
waiting for another heart
to hear the music, too.
