Poetry Collaboration - Isabelle

Hello Poetteers, 

I hope you enjoy today's poem. 

Dancing For Joy

Dancing with my friends, I discover my body:
I'm twirling under the lights,
electricity fuelled limbs

I watch their hips sway
arms pumping the air -
following along I am not as smooth,
but my smile fills the room,
hits the roof,
bounces off the ceiling

I was afraid of showing skin
my body always aches to feel whole
but I don’t feel it tonight
it’s all about seeing the joy in our eyes:
When I dance I am transcendent,
And in my laughter, I find self-love.

By Fida Islaih and Isabelle Kenyon
