La Loie Fuller à Paris

A ribbon of light and color –
a rose undone.
Chasing the fabric 
of dance,
you become the turning thread
of the wind – 
a cyclone moving –
your inner stillness untouched.

Ribbon of light,
fantail of dreams – 
orange plumes become
an aqua gemstone comb
tucked behind the ear – 
an afterthought walking through time – 
the eyes in a poster 
following every passing pedestrian.
You are La Belle Époque.
