These are the mad musings of a middle aged woman, dyke, nurse, poet. I have a dog, a cat, a mobile home, and delusions of grandeur.

Dancing Queen

Swaying in the crowd, I saw her,
The tiny woman in the hot pink dress,
White strand of beads shimmering
In the dying summer light.

She closed her eyes,
Her beatific smile glowing;
She could feel it inside her
The music of the sweet jazz band.

She danced and danced
As though the world had vanished;
She danced and with that dance
I thought my heart would break.

Her tiny form swirled
Around and in and out the crowd;
She danced her love,
She danced her soul, she danced beyond.

Beyond the limits of her being,
Beyond the limits of all our seeing,
Beyond the sky and to the stars.
She danced and set me weeping.

I knew that was you Sangro ;^) Good luck in your search. This actually is about a Down's Syndrome woman that I watched last night at our local summer Thursday night free concert.

Did you write this Pam?

Just beautiful. Makes me think of when you can dance like no one is watching - with abandon. That's the best dancing nad the best kind to watch - when someone is dancing for themself and no one else.

Have a great weekend.

Pam! This is beautiful! I love it so much that it makes me want to dance.

There's not much that doesn't make me want to dance anyway. With total abandon. That's the only way.

Thanks everyone. I haven't danced like that in a number of years. But the simplicity of her joy took me right back.
