Awaken Me

Awaken Me

A Poem by Marie Harrison
"

my love for ballet dancing and playing the cello

"

Awaken Me

Deep chords

Of a solemn cello

Chiseling swiftly up

And down the scales

Stir raw emotions

Asleep in me

 

Gliding my feet

Back and forth

Swiftly, like a

Hummingbird just

Learning to fly

 

My satin toes

Make rhythmic

Thrusts against

The hardwoods,

As my arms

Soar through

The air

 

Strings

Of the cello

Overtake

Me

 

They cast

Their spell on

My spirit

 

Rich tones

Stoke the glowing

Embers of my

Soul

You guided my spirit on the joys of the sweetest chords. I appreciated the vivid picture from such a brilliant description...

"Gliding my feet
Back and forth
Swiftly, like a
Hummingbird just
Learning to fly"

I think i could feel your excitement in the words...that takes skill :)

Nicely done my friend!
