Alluring Ballet Dancer...

Alluring Ballet Dancer...

A Poem by Onlyme





 Sitting in front of an open logged fireplace
in the front room
of our house

it's evening time and dusk
has just started to fall

no one is in
the house is in a quiet and calm
atmosphere

I sit on the floor
in front of the soothing flames
and watch them dance
before me

I see a ballet dancer
and she is pirouetting
before me

Inside the red and white passionate
waves of wonderment.

I'm captivated
by the grace and
the charm of her moves
as I gaze
hypnotically
like a child
at
the bewitching effects
the flickering of the light
of the embers
have on
my
heart, mind
and soul.

My eyes see the
beauty
That may be
others do
not see.

As clearly as I do.
From this vision
of allurement.

I really warmed to this poem, Dee ( if you,ll forgive the pun) as it was a fascinating reminder of my boyhood, when we had open coal fires .
I would sit watching the glowing coal and flames create pictures, even stories in my imagination.
Even now, I can still see abstract patterns in tiles etc resemble objects, which prompts a painting or a piece of writing. So perhaps it is something we never lose. Is this what creativity is all about?
