Sands shift

A rain drop falls

Meeting gazes, 

knowing smiles

Do they know?

Can they smell my fear?

I’ve learned to hide it, for these years

Dress just right, shoes to match.  

Another pose, behind the mask.

One time, 

many years ago, in front of thousands, 

I learned to show.

Get up in defeat, 

Rise above the fall.

Cry later, 

in the shower stall.

Winds are changing,

the tides are turning.

Calling, calling my name.

Get up again…

Dance in that rain!
