Once again I’ve started dancing

She says ballet’s good for the soul

The muscles slowly remember


But there’s no time to remember

spirits past, future or present while dancing

Full concentration! Maximum participation! Ignore the soul!


But perhaps my soul

does remember

Even while body and mind focus on dancing


Surely the soul must always remember dancing?


I’m giving National/Global Poetry Writing Month (NaPoWriMo / GloPoWriMo) a go – write one poem, per day throughout April. Today’s prompt/challenge was to write a tritina. A tritina involves three, three-line stanzas, and a final concluding line. Three “end words” are used to conclude the lines of each stanza, in a set pattern of ABC, CAB, BCA, and all three end words appear in the final line. This was a good challenge!  🙂
