She wears purple, smiles,
pushes back her curly cue hair -
when the music starts
she becomes a dandelion,
all her little wishes drifting above clouds.
She says, "Move your body,"
and her fingers make rainbows in the air.
She closes her eyes, moves inside the music,
catches notes in her palms.
Then she rests on the floor
with her hands above her head
and lets the energy fall back to her.
