I stand, frozen
twisted limbs
arched feet
straining every muscle
and still looking graceful
ten thousand thoughts race through my still, silent head
as I wait
and then the curtain opens
and I release my rigid pose
and dance,
my feet beating out the rhythm
telling a story so complex
in a language written long ago
twirling, bending, stretching,
the air is full of silent music
an entire orchestra in my toes
and then the music stops;
the last violin quivers and is silent
the curtain sweeps closed
but the music in my feet
keeps playing

Could you look at (possibly comment and rate) my article "The Language of dance"? your article reminded me of it. I think this peice sounds just as graceful as dancing itself.
