Dreamily Dazed

download

 

She hums to herself

as she bustles

with the blinds open

and the windows cracked

 

With all her weight

pressed upon her toes

with movements – in time

 they know not, how to relax

 

And in the midst of such blissful reverie,

she gets lost in the motion

and allows her feet to take the lead

 

Then, suddenly –

a gawking, squawking

beckons her,

a guest most unwelcoming to meet

 

A crooked crow demands

her silence

and to stop – at once!

“Such foolish dance”

Sneering at her with false pity.

 

And assuring him she meant no malice,

she wishes him a good day

He huffs and puffs and flies off

Looking for fresh prey

 

For she was no fool and he-

with much noise and very little to say

would undoubtedly never go a day

in silence.

 

As for the lady,

I promise –

She was not phased

In fact, hear her song and see her dance

you’ll find she is but dreamily dazed.
