For Paul Brookes’ Special January Ekphrastic Challenge, Day Twenty-Two, I’ve responding to KR “Star Dancer” and CO28
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,
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.
Reblogged this on The Wombwell Rainbow.
Thank you, Paul!
You tapped into the dancer’s passion and magic! Well done, Merril.
Thank you, Frank!
I really enjoyed this, Merril! You’ve sparked visions of sugar plum dancing in my head. 🙂
Hahahaha. I do what I can, Jill. 😀 Thanks!
Love, love, love this, Merril.! Makes me think of the “dance like no one is watching”… Let it go freely.
Thank you so much, Dale!
Pleasure is all mine

Thank you! 😀
I like the desire for connection expressed in the last two lines. Well done, Merril!
Thank you very much, Marian!
So very musical. Her patience should be rewarded
Thank you, Derrick. I hope it is.
Very pretty, Merril! And the art is inspiring to me because of my art journal (the techniques). So thank you and thank you again.
Thank you, Luanne. I follow Kerfe’s blog, and she always has her own art with poetry.
You’ve caught the hypnotic magic of dance. (K)
Thank you so much, Kerfe. I’m pleased you think so.
And when she finds another heart to hear the music, too, the bonds of earth will loosen and off they’ll fly. I love this poem!!
Thank you so much, Liz! 😀
You’re welcome, Merril!
