160: The Dancer

Overcome with music
She sways in joyous dance.

She cares not where she is
Or what passers-by may think.
The only thing she notices
Is that the muse began to sing.

This is my offering for Sunday 160, hosted by Monkey Man here.


  1. oh, Patti! what a rich image!
    did you take it?
    I am happy when I dance, and I've found my muse again.
    no more naps, just a day alone, even in the car, is enough.....
    mine is up HERE

  2. Dianne, I'm so happy you've found your muse. I think she is in fine form after reading your 160. Yes, I took this picture. There was an outdoor sculpture show scattered all around a nearby town, and this lady was dancing on the steps of an old church. I think dancing makes her happy too.

  3. You two took fabulous pics for your 160 Wait till you see mine...Hahahahahaha
    I love creative modern art..
    You Rock Patti....

  4. I love to dance-- nice photo wouldn't mind having that piece of art --- your 160 muse: The poet is inspired by the muse , and sensing the beauty in the movement of the muse, poetry burst through encapsulating them both. Beautiful you and your muse.


  5. nice. as you know my wife was a dancer for years...and i know the feeling of being lost in the music and just dancing...nice 160...and i like the art as well....

  6. That sculpture looks like she is, indeed, having a joyous dance. I wish she was dancing in my garden so I could look at her every day.

  7. And then you shared her joy with us- thanks!

  8. What a lovely way to begin my Sunday...a dance with your poetry. Good one, Patti :)

  19. That is certainly an awesome piece; sculpture, photo and 160 to go with it. I too can get swept away by music at times and care not a whiff what people think when the music takes me

  20. mdw: Thank you! See you Wednesday.

    kkrige: Thank you. Losing yourself in the music is a wonderful thing.

  21. so lovely...your words describe my 5 year old, always so happy and singing and dancing...

  22. She: Children have that marvelous ability to just go with the flow, and not let inhibitions stand in the way. When do we lose that, I wonder?

  23. Ah, if only I were so uninhibited! :)

    Great photo and S160.

  24. MZ: Thank you.

    Me: Yeah I know just what you mean.
