Watching a Dancer

She wears a white costume for her dance.
her body is trim
and shapely and strong.

Before she begins
she waits composed,
wait to hear the music start.

The music moves her.
She hears it keenly. The music
pulses her body with its rhythms.

It delights her. It haunts her body
into patterns of curves and angles.
She rocks. She spins.
