Pirouette Through Life #OneShotWednesday


She leaps and springs

no care where she lands

near or far

a lily pad

perhaps the edge of a star

***

her toes sparkle

as they they tiptoe on  wonder

where will they step?

dance little girl

little care for what’s next

***

spring forth

momentary adventure

each dance step a smile

sparkle caught in the air

she has to giggle for awhile

***

the dance of new life

brings hope to hearts

smiling and gleaming

pirouette of childish delight

never cease your dreaming

This is one poem in a wide variety of poetry shared with One Shot Wednesday. Please join us for an excellent time in inspiration.

The Dance of the Little Girl – 2011 L. Moon

When I was a young artist, I did a whole study of my favorite subject ” little girls.” This is my first attempt at drawing except for cartooning in “forever.”

Thank you for visiting Moondustwriter. One of the many exciting things I've had the honor of doing is writing and publishing in multiple genres (including education) in E. African for E. Africa. As a writer, it is a thrill to write for children (on all continents) who want to learn. I've been part of the blogging community for more than 13 years. Some old timers may remember the award winning (2011 Twitter Shorty ) blog community - One Stop Poetry. I was the co-producer of that fast growing blog community. I am a published writer, poet, artist and photographer. I have written, as well as edited, for periodicals, radio, blogs and fellow writers. There are many facets to this moon - my joy is in meeting you!

  1. oh, I love it! the drawing is simple yet elegant, innocense portrayed so beautifully in both word and sketch. I love watching my little girl play, twirling around just as you described.

    Your one shot is only the second one I have read so far this week (repressedsoul, the other) and they are both about little girls as is mine this week. Weird, huh?

    1. sadly all my drawing and paintings were either sold or lost. This one was drawn after watching children dance on Jan 30th.

  2. I love watching little children perform (well, of course). Such a delight when we judge the tiny ones. They come out sparkling like Christmas dolls and they’re so young they don’t get nervous, they just want to show you their smiles, their dresses, and the shine on their new white boots! You capture those moments so well here. Well done! Gay @beachanny

    What a wonderful sketch and word sketch of the innocence of a little girl! It is always such a pleasure to read your uplifting poetry. I hope you will allow time for your artwork, it is an amazing talent!

  5. how lovely…to be a little girl, twirling, and stepping, flying across the floor and into the clouds, beyond the stars, soaring into imagination and all the possibilities that are vast before her!

  6. One of the best moments of this week was watching my daughters (2 yrs. 7 mos. and 16 mos.) dancing during the Super Bowl halftime show. They didn’t care about the adults in the room who were either singing along or talking about the Black Eyed Peas being the downfall of Western culture (not much middle ground in that room!). They just danced, and it was beautiful.

  7. Your drawing is lovely. And so is this poem. It brought back two distinct memories – myself as a little girl and my daughter when she was young. Beautiful, Leslie.

  8. Such a true artist! Ok…this poem brought me face to face with the little girl inside…I love the title…and actually used to pirouette everywhere! In fact the only reason I stopped is due to medical stuff/vertigo…

    Wonderful One Shot!

    I love the imagination you capture. Children do dance away to the edges of the world and back again and you have captured this nicely Leslie. Thanks for being such a supportive host this week (and thank you for visiting me at both my sites -you found me!)

  10. I love this Leslie. It trips lightly across the imagination, just like your little heroine.

    Thank you so much for your kind words this week. I really appreciate it, my friend.
