What do you see # 44 – so graceful

Joel Valve- Unsplash
( For the visually challenged reader, the image shows a girl dancing under the jets of water of a fountain, which are meeting above her her in an arc)

Flirting with water

Flowing and hotter

Follow her fingers stretched

Forged ahead with sound

Her movements astound

So graceful as one sketched

Shiny like a fish

Freezing as she swish

Lacy fibers fringed her dress

Fill us all with awe

Not one single flaw

She’s dancing here to impress*
