WL Schuett

She Dances

back lit moon glow 

she shines 

dreamy and ethereal 

moving like the night 

she dances 


wisps of smoke 

an uninhibited fire 

a spark all aglow 

like smoke she curls 

a dance soft and slow 


a thousand nights 

from a time unknown 

the moon romances 

the spirit moves her 

and ... she dances

                Dance under the Moon, dance with fire glow, dance for hope, dance for dream, dance to free the soul.
                Poem dance with the paint. Lovely.

                    You are welcome. You painted so well. Every time, when I looked at your paint, there is something in it goes beyond my vision and catch me.
