The tears of a rhapsody

glide slowly along the strings of a violin


He stands…

a single vision

under a dimly lit spot light

He waits…

for an essence of grace

to float by and awaken his spirit

He feels…

the melody

breathing life into his limbs

He hears…

the whisper of satin pointes wafting

from behind

He sees…

gossamer fingers embrace his hand


She leads…

him forth into a world which transcends reality.

      You are so very sweet – thank you for re-posting this piece – for giving it the chance to perform one more time. It was a collaboration of inspiration – an artist, a photo and, of course, the part of me that will never, ever die. xx
