Espadrille

Spread the love

ballet-shoes-1260800_1920

With every step she makes a pledge
While radiant dawn sends out hope
Smooth on sand and loud on ledge
Swirls along dolce on nature’s palm.

Much like crystal set afore display
Her life an endless dance — ballet
‘Spend a day or two see how you do
for love they say needs must be true’
She bade passion mold unto her will
Twirling round in roseate espadrille.

  10. I love the way you’ve combined the two prompts, Sanaa! I was a massive ballet fan when I was a child but my parents couldn’t afford the lessons. I still love the feel of ballet shoes. I love the lines:
    ‘Smooth on sand and loud on ledge
    Swirls along dolce on nature’s palm’
    and
    ‘She bade passion mold unto her will
    Twirling round in roseate espadrille.’

    Beautiful, beautiful, Sanaa. My mother (still alive at 96) was a ballet dancer, and there was a pile of toe shoes at the bottom of her closet. I was too horsy to dance. LOL!~ But this poem brings back the delicacy (and the insanity!) of ballet.

    1. Sanaa says:

      Thank you so much, Jane ❤️ so glad you liked it 🙂

  13. Yes, a perfect melding of dance & music, reminding me of all the grand classical tunes that are written for ballet. Your rhyme scheme helps stay in touch with the traditional as well.

    Much like crystal set afore display
