Rain Taps-- Poetry 2011
Rain poured through her afternoon nap;
dripping fluid forms waterlogged visions.
Black and white with gray shades
via Singing in the Rain with Gene Kelly…
splashing and smashing puddles skyward,
confident and skillful in body and soul.
In reality - middle age quest to tap resulted
in being relegated to end of the line; vision
impoverished, overlooked, neglected, she quit.
Tap shoes collect dust on her closet shelf still
reluctant to give up tap dancing in the rain.
