Poem - Photo of a Dancer

Dance photography remembers past events when people met and danced, but it is not the complete picture. No matter how good the pic, there are elements missing.

Photo of a Dancer
Poem for Day 025 - 20150125

Your photo is an echo
of the dancer I've come to know.
It is an imitation incomplete
of a partner I would repeat.

The intensity of your gaze
was matched with my own.
This is absent in the image
when I look to your photo.

I remember your hand,
but memory is all I have.
Pale copy of your touch
nestled against my back.

Snapshot of your self,
reveals nothing of your soul,
I cannot in glossy pic see
the person I've come to know.

Lastly I miss your essence,
you are a dynamo of passion.
Your portrait only mimics this,
as I wait to be in your arms.
