Surrounding beauty goes unseen
Because it has become who you are.
I take a step back,
A deep breath,
You will surround me too.
Adjust to my life
I pretend my joy is far
I run again like I used to
Without a care
& I feel beautiful, like you.
The privacy of an intimate life
When feelings were gifts we exchanged
Like them or not
They were easily given,
Not easily hidden
The heart was a clue
& the art of giving was you.
I drew myself on the top corner of a page
Containment coerced me
& I suddenly flew
It was you I saw from afar
The rhythm that clashed into a stable beat
& a gap was seen
The heart rhythm trickled
& turned to a boil
Water didn’t taste like it should
It rose with signals
That mocked my life
Digestive thought ended
A sinking dream fled
& you were the candle that remained in my head
In darkness words appeared in your glow
You brought to life all the unknown
You are my dream
My surrounding beauty that goes unseen

The Password is the last word on the last page of the book.

My beautiful hand sewn, delicately embroidered and designed, all time favorite skirt I bought in London 8 years ago. I’d forgotten about it and I decided to pull it out after I saw the uncanny resemblance of the image of Malena. Then I dug out my French style hat that I’d forgotten about.
My Favorite Hat, French Style
Here I am below, with the very impressive piece of art that I use for my Malena artist’s name. The artist is the daughter of a friend and she’s very talented.
Just to emphasize why I love this skirt. It’s adorable, and I hope one day I could have the time to make a beautiful design of my own, like this one!

Classic shot of a setting I made for my Malena image.
Hmmmmm… What’s next, you ask?
Perhaps some inspiration to write a book. In this case, the book inspired image.
And here’s another book, below! I don’t have the copy of my third book because I gave it to a friend. Her name is Lena.
She’s the beautiful tall blond girl on the cover with the most awesome flower in her head. She’s featured in the photos along with another close friend, Gala, who’s also our dance teacher.
Where is Gala? She’s the one with her head low in the picture.

As you know, I’ve published some poetry books lately, and of which I’ve started a competition. I like to think of fun ways to give my books away, and it gives me pleasure when people enjoy my poems. Of course I can’t give everyone a copy, and so what better way than to share the fun!
The idea is that you post a photo on Poems That Dance page of you or of someone you know (yes, pets are OK too:) doing a ‘dance’. This can be hopping, jumping, skipping, flying, anything you can imagine. Be as ‘simple’ or creative as you would like. The first 100 entries go into a draw, and then I pick out the winner, by physically drawing out one name.
It’s too hard to judge the ‘best’ because I feel all photos are special and unique.
Poems That Dance is a book of poems illustrated by photos of dance choreography for children. If you are into dance, drama, and song, you will love this book. There’s a free audio that goes with the book too. There are endless benefits for movement, and these are also outlined on my webpage, along with samples of the poems as well as audios!
