It is her dream: to dance.

Illuminated by the glow of a single spotlight,
She begins.

Her body sways,
Outstretched arms undulate
Emulating flowing waters.

Then hands,
Rising into the air like lifting fog,
Fall like rain

Onto the black rubber rims.

The wheelchair twirls,
Sparkling in the sunlight from between tattered curtains
As the audience within her reverie,
Dazzled by beauty,
Applauds.

  1. There are theatre groups which sometimes hold sessions where people in wheelchairs can enjoy dance. I think it's wonderful.
    I created a bit for this prompt here.

    1. This poem seems to mix the emotions of the young lady (as I see her) with those of the reader. I know I am biased, but I enjoyed writing it as well!

      Thanks for reading!
