Ballerina

Ballerina

A Poem by Neville Pettitt

Ballerina

Like a tiny ballerina

She skips across the floor

She pirouettes then reaches out

To rearrange a flower

Naked

Save the broken golden cross

She always wore

Then watching from the unmade bed

I realise her lover said

I love you

I think You are a very happy hippy man indeed :)

I wish I could write in this simplicity You've wrote with, simple yet moving, what I like the most about it, that sometimes we don't need any word to say, but "a little bit of " reaction or "a little bit of " glimpse.... when love speaks out loud, with no voice, passionate and affectionate Your words are, thank You*

You bring another famous dancer, Edgar Degas's! to mind . A Very sensual description of your muse, like a true poet you portrayed her! Adorei muito!
