I was browsing through some blogs when I came across Wishing For Wings That Work. On this blog, I watched the video you see below and was inspired to write a short poem. I am certainly not a poet, but I am entranced by the beautiful moves of dance accompanied by a beautiful voice. I hope you can appreciate it as I do.

By: Nurse Nightingale

My ears, my eyes, my soul
held captive by such poise
The flow of graceful body
The fluidity of molten voice.

Wrapped in a sensual sound,
enveloped in a velvety shroud
in a realm of beauty
where I've been allowed

The chance to be lured
by voice, into a trance
of fluidity of body
flowing in a carnal dance.

I enjoyed your profile... It sounded so much like me when I was growing up in a small village..

Oops, my apologies! I didn't realize I had it set to private. I will remedy that momentarily. Thank you for visiting! I hope you enjoyed it. The Nurse Nightingale blog is just a collection of videos I liked. I thought I would give you a heads-up on it.
