ballerinas dance
in fairy dusted toe shoes
a twirl of ribbons
adorning dainty ankles
satin steps ascend to air

Chris, I absolutely love this ballerina toe shoe beauty! I can imagine the verse on a poster in the bedroom of every little ballerina!

What a pretty, soft tanka....I always wanted to be a ballerina - but took tap and jazz instead...
