Ballerina


Imagine a ballerina, in the middle of a ballroom floor
With classical music a-playing
While dancing like never before
She is dressed in beautiful attire
With her legging tights and long blonde hair
Twirling and flipping on her toes
Forms a dramatic figure, as her body flows
She looks like an angel, who flutters her wings,
Putting on satin ballerina shoes
Dancing like a drama queen
As a child this was merely a dream
In a tutu with style and pink lace
Wearing a smile upon her face
Poised and lovely as a swan
That swims gracefully across the pond
But, did I forget to mention
She performs like a star
Attracts your attention
Like a brand new shiny car

This Poems Story

This poem is dedicated to Sharon Moore Myers, who has polio from the waist down. I was born in the small town of Pulaski, VA. I am married to a wonderful husband, David Armstrong. He is employed at a hardward store as a sales manager. I have only one son, Jeffery Armstrong, who is self employed. He has his own business, as an embroidTek. I have two sisters, named Ms. Patricia Kanode and Ms. Peggy White. No other of my immediate family is living. I am an inspired writer who writes about holidays, true stories and real life experiences. I have an ebook on Amazon.com titled: Most Precious Gift. I also have other poems in books, such as Famous Poets of Heartland, Timeless Voices, Great Poems of Today. I hold a golden poet award for my poem titled "Gilbert Linkous Located in Blacksburg". It is about an elementary school. I also have a silver poet award for a poem titled: "Jesus Was Born." That is a Christmas song I wrote. My inspiration to write this poem, "Ballerina," was a dream of mine, to become one when I was in my teens. But instead I decided to use my God given talent to inspire other people, and give them an encouraging word to enlighten their heart, and fill it spiritually with kindness, love and hope.
