en l' Air

Gillian Murphy


Body on points
Coiled and throbbing to let loose
Turn and point, turn and point
Lifted, toes like daggers
Running, feet seeking the air
Release, gravity defied,
A vessel of pure bliss,
A single note, hanging,
In an Aria of movement

a wonderful freedom leap...

I like the image of "toes like daggers." It lends towards a more visceral feeling of the dance.

made me want to dust off my toe shoes and make my attempts at the freedom that dance can provide, along with the discipline that goes with it.
