Fifth Position

I’ll dance lightly on tepid glass
with you melted fifth position.
Your arms long, smooth, as gilded wings
I’ll slight embrace your poise sun.

A phoenix ray of squint ballet
you warmed the cold solstice
that hung briefly upon the air.
A mid- winter’s preface.

A ballad form for One Stop Poetry


  1. Fifth position is hard-as in difficult. It
    might melt!
    I do like your images. Thanks.

  2. Great images here loved the ballad Jerry, I'm turning into the class screw up but I don't mind I have one week to improve!! Blessings my friend!

  3. very beautiful.. kinda magical
    - SY

  4. ..and i long for spring anyway - no matter how beautiful you write about winter...

  5. And the sun dances through - pirouetting through winter here. Well done and beautiful.

  6. I don't know much about ballet, but this was lyrical and light as any steps they take, Jerry.

  7. **exhale**

    so. beautiful.

    thank you.


So, you made a little time to stop by. You are welcome any time...speak freely.
