a singular moment

briefest of moments…

anticipation flutters

alone  – not lonely

purest of joy becomes strength

before the curtain rises…

        i have always been amazed how lonely it can be when surrounded by a lot of people. life has always generally felt like that.

    I could feel the dancer’s anticipation in the words of the poem. I always love when you write poetry about dancing!

      thank you. the thing about this piece is – it really is more about the little things of life in general than the moment i was standing on a stage. 🙂

        Life is a “stage” of sorts. I think your poem was lovely.
