do they really mean what they say?
catch me on the cold nights
basking in the sun

I just found this wonderful Shadow Dancer prompt offered by Bastet at Mind love miserys menagerie. The photography (top) is by Nickolas Muray . The photograph below is my shot of a whimsical sculpture in the National Gallery of Art.

Oh how clever to make the adage ‘beauty is in the eye of the beholder’ a circuitous feature of your poem. I loved this take on the image. Well done.

That in and of itself is a dance 🙂
Well done … nice how you created a circle taking the reader back and forth … bravo!
I agree with the others… and I love the picture you took.
