His Passion Speaks

 His passion speaks
in ballet movement
the glory of dance.
In sinew leap he
defies  gravity’s pull
to be glued to earth.

A portrait in motion
painted with talent’s brush;
he frames his art
with an enthusiastic
spirit of joy.

Heartstrings twitch
to expand a heart
that embraces love
to be all inclusive
as his body speaks
a sonnet upon the stage.

The audience raises
its adoration in the noise
of clapping hands
and shouts of praise.
His steps have led them
from their world into his
where constraints are broken
by the beauty of dance.

Your passion speaks "with talent's brush" and I raise to you clapping hands of praise and adoration.
