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.
