Happy Halloween! Part of my birthday present from Randy was going to see the ballet Giselle. I’ve never seen anything but The Nutcracker (yawn). This was so cool! And, this photo is appropriate for today, since Giselle (center) is dead, and the Willis (everyone else) are the spirits of girls who were jilted on or died on their wedding days. Three things this photo makes me think of:
1) New kid on her first day of school
3) Those brushy things you dust with
And here’s my first draft!
Dance of the Dandelions
My yard is a stage
Puffs of white skirts pause,
waiting to pirouette with wind
