Poetry – "danseuse/debutante" #NaPoWriMo Day 10

Day 10:






danseuse/debutante
by Jennifer Patino
when you dance
the very essence of being stirs in every person around you
they could be 
watching, joining in, seeing you on a competition video
it never matters
all the rhythm of oceans, the world’s heartbeats, are yours, they give freely
when you ask
my advice for every decision, especially those involving love
I feel inadequate
because I often feel no one is worthy of trying to keep up with you
I don’t mean
this in a bad way, no never would I speak ill of pure sunshine
I just need
to see you smile always & whirl around at warped speed
with a partner
who flows through your veins like your skirts in the breeze
when you dance
on your big day I’ll be there, applauding with all the rest
Author’s Note: Today’s optional prompt is a portrait poem of someone important to you.
