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

'Stoke the glowing
Embers of my
Soul'

Very graphic. I enjoyed this. You have a good mix of the description plus the abstract. You can practically hear the music and see the dance and at the same time you can feel the feeling beyond...

Excellent choice of words to end the poem
