The Bailaora of the ball

From the balcony I see her

In the composure of the night

The Bailaora takes over the streets

As she absorbs the mood, into the moonlight

I perceive the Jaleadors and Jaleadoras

Providing the ultimate rhythmic Palma


It looks so incredibly aire

I long so much to be there


She smiles, assuring the crowd,



Arms held high,

Above her head

She looks so sturdy

So proud of herself

Her hands turn inwards

Then outwards

Then the zapateado begins


Observing, I dream

I fantasise of only to be her

The Bailaora of the ball


I close the scenery

Yet in my heart

I can feel the rhythm

My feet feel

The passion, the embrace

Of it all




Author's Notes:
I dream of becoming a flamenco dancer.

Oh Leah!!  This was so worth the wait!  What a poem dear.  This is beautiful...  I love the way to project on the poem, and the passion you feel for this.  Brilliant, brilliant! 
Never stop dreaming, hey...
