One Single Impression: Circles

She circles the dance floor
Gracefully
Effortlessly
A smile on her face
Not a baby
Not a little girl
Not yet a woman
She circles the dance floor
She knows the steps
Stumbles little
She’s on her way
She circles the dance floor
Gracefully
Effortlessly
A smile on her face
Always

This is beautiful. I see Degas's ballerinas as I read this. Plenty of love for the dancer in these words!

Of course, I didn't even think of dancing and I love to dance. Thanks for adding dance to my ever growing collection of mental pictures for circles.
