"I pause, I breathe, my thoughts I gather & retrieve...
I hold a poised stance,
I know it is time, it is my chance,
I am ready to BELLY DANCE!
Sometimes I don't know where to start,
So I let go, as I delve into this sacred art,
Showcasing what I feel lies in my heart,
My nerves are restless,
I hope the crowd can't guess this,
I'm on the bill, I have been listed,
My spirit hears the music & is instantly uplifted,
To feel the drums, to capture the beat,
The vibration stirs underneath my feet,
I am connected to the ground,
I hear the cue to move to the sound,
I glance at the audience all around......
The music takes me on a journey,
My movements capture the story,
And play it out in all it's glory,
With presence & grace,
I move my body & pick up the pace....
The coins, the bling, the shine & the shimmer,
The spotlight makes me glimmer,
The ups, the downs, the fast, the slow,
I am in the performance, I am the show,
Let's continue to go with the flow,
The beautiful swirls,
The amazing twirls,
The sensual hips,
The rise & the dips
The strong arms,
The cheeky charms,
The smiles that reach for miles,
The cheers that ring through my ears,
To hear the sound of the Zaghareet,
What a musical treat!
As it draws to a close,
I take my final pose,
Then I feel the loving vibe,
From my belly dance tribe!
