Kerry at Real Toads has challenged us with the poetic inspiration of TS Elliot to write a prelude. Kerry's Wednesday Challenge ~ Prelude
Wednesday, May 8, 2013
Painted with the shadow
of another’s art she prepares
to feel the spotlight’s heat.
You can’t attempts to weary her faith,
but she has climbed each stone
of failure’s stairway to reach
this last chance for success.
Risking it all on her toes
she stretches each muscle into grace
while she awaits the curtain call
to unwind her nerves into Swan Lake.
