They are lean,
and forged, with long glorious
costumes, tightly fitted, leaving a trail behind,
red iridescent sequins,
reflecting the stage illumination,
with their radiant and flawless beams.
They strike each pose,
in the blinding spotlight,
somber, with passion,
graciously flying,
as if feeling,
the notes and harmony,
striking, willowy fluttering in the air.
Song makes them poised,
elegant as a swan,
visible with each movement.
When they finish, it's the tune fading away.
Their spirits halt gradually,
vanishing in their last,
ultimate finale.

The author's comments:
This poem is used to represent a dancer. I never used any form of the word "dance" to try and make the readers guess what person I am talking about. The reader should feel pride and feel poised with the word choice I used. This is one stanza with 20 lines.
