Greek (Tanka)
Victoria. Age 13. Greeneville, Tennessee

                      Feminine tiptoe,
Lace upon shoe,
Hush, hush, hush now,
Twirl like a fairy,
For these stunning moves are still new.

Elegant dance,
Sends the conscious into trance,
A story land of my dream,
Though she tiptoes past so quickly, smoothly,
So her face I have never seen.

But there's still something missing,
This performance without it is nothing,
Hush, hush, hush now,
Twirl like a fairy,
Your performance is like a utopia of butterflies,
But won't you just stop at this moment and let me gaze into your eyes?

In mystical mist,
She prances away,
No intention to stray,
From her marionette dream of a dance.
She doesn't notice me watching,
So now she slips away from her trance.

She turns and looks me in the eyes,
Her realization I'm there full of surprise.
And I gasp.

Now I know why she never shows face to any.

She's the faceless ballerina,
But still beautiful to me.
And she knows I have no prejudice,
I'm the only one who can love her like this.

She's the faceless ballerina,
But still beautiful to me,
So she takes my hand,
And we dance for eternity.
