The Stone Ballerina’s Dance

Frozen in movement
A stone statue
Surrounded by the sounds
Of her dreams
Holding the stone body
In an eternal
Stopped movement
 .
She strains
Her stone body
To move
One inch
Forward
She seems to have a tight mouth
Under her stone mason cut
Joyful smile
 .
Everyday
She watches the dancers
Come back and forth
From their shows
In pink feathered headdresses
Black stage shoes
And sequined outfits
All with a luster
Grey stone can never match
 .
In rain
Her tears pour down
In the smell of wet stone
Of the freshness
Of water
Moving all around her
In a dance
She can never preform
