You Left to Pirouette on the Moon

800px-Pointe_shoe_ribbonsyou left one winter day to balancé on sunbeams
and pirouette on the moon, artfully swirling
lunar dust and scattering it over our dreams,
sparking our lives with your memory, your love
a legacy of dance for tiny ballerinas

…………see us now . . . 
as well-worn as your old toe shoes
