Bittersweet Ballet (One Word Photo Challenge-Bittersweet)

Bittersweet Ballet

Bittersweet Ballet

Ballet Haiku (Bittersweet)

Little girl dreaming
Of being a ballerina
Dancing on her toes

Grown woman dreaming
Of twirling with abandon
While still in control

  1. They are so cute.
    And You are the master of the haiku. πŸ˜„


  2. Beautiful. I really love your bittersweet (in both meanings of the word) ballet imagery. The Writing 201 deadline seemed to come and go all at once. I’m sure it would have been fun to play along with. I considered joining as well, just to explore art as poetry and poetry in itself. I missed the deadline too and considered following along with the prompts anyway, but clearly that hasn’t happened. In any case, thank you so much for sharing πŸ™‚
