Change Partners – A Novelinee

Change Partners

Dancing to your tune I move gingerly
A misstep would be unwise causing pain
and I’m careful to avoid injury
fearing I’ll be your perennial bane
Imagining a new movement sequence
I pray for music to finally change
as I choreograph a new frequence
A change of partner giving me free range
It seems to me to be a fair exchange

Laura Bloomsbury is hosting D'Verse Poets - Meet at the Bar tonight
and as it is the ninth day of the ninth month she has prompted us with
a form that is new to me called the Novelinee. It is a nine line poem
with an a,b,a,b,c,d,c,d,d sequence.

    If you cannot dance without being hurt… you need both a new song and a new partner.

    some good rhymes and there’s a powerful message in this dance – more like the wresting picture
    “Dancing to your tune I move gingerly
    A misstep would be unwise causing pain”

    Hopefully the new partner would be fun & allow you to dance your new frequence. You did well with the form even though some end words are tricky – gingerly and injury.
