Waltzing through air, this vision with beguiling delicate grace
Like a danseuse figure, poised, carving delicate grace.

A breeze gently embraces this fragile creature
touching nimble limbs, a limber accentuating delicate grace.

Sunlight streams iridescent on her lissome stance
symmetrically lithe and supple, flaunting delicate grace.

Rhythmic movements pattern fawn colored sand creations
nudging grass beneath, with a soothing delicate grace.

The boundless energy of this dainty, flighty antelope
as she ambulates gracefully, epitomizing, delicate grace.

Elusive, mysterious, uninhibited, she basks in nature’s fold
within a cosmos, spangled with, pleasing, delicate grace.

Her vulnerability fills me with foreboding and much fear
of bloodthirsty predators, massacring delicate grace.

  1. I was not sure where your graceful poem was headed and I loved that! An element of surprise contained in your lines. You describe dancing antelopes so beautifully and perfectly. I used to love to watch them when I lived in Northern AZ. Their movements do seem choreographed, especially when they are moving in a herd. Creative and fitting title. πŸ¦ŒπŸ’“

      1. It is a delightful adventure traveling the paths that your mind creates, and there are always many splendid, unexpected, and beautiful things to gaze upon. πŸ₯° Mind delights I don’t mind.
        Sorry… Northern Arizona is considered the high country north of Phoenix, Arizona. Up in the mountains. I used to stop my car and watch antelope run and leap and graze. Beautiful animals. I hated to see the graceful creatures spooked.
        Thank you. 😊 πŸ’–

      3. Travel, we do, through the pathways and highways that pulsate and vibrate with each heartbeat. A journey that begins through the mind’s eye. Not concerned with a destination – exploring and discovering are the ultimate treats for poet’s, like you and I. πŸ’•

        Yes, any time in nature is a treat and there are always surprises and abundance to be found.

  2. Lovely all the way through, of course–my fave pick: “carving delicate grace”–for some reason this really moved me…I guess the notion that “delicate grace” can be ‘carved’–obviously with a careful, gentle knife or tool.
