into a harder colour of time
along that undescribed line
where hearts usually shiver out of
the excitement of thought
as if you brought
too many presents for a child
and they don’t know
where to look and what to love
from a shallow pink to a deep red
with her feet forgotten on air
with her breath bouncing lighter
her cheeks above her lips
for a sheer happiness of a dance
performed in a wide stance
of a three year old little girl
in her ballet shoes of a muse

Naming the Invisible is my life long challenge ... words which live, describe life and eventually impart life ...
