the spell

of my grace

fluid, bewitching

the sway of my hips

slithering pirouette

in perfect cadence

to the music

beating wildly

an incantation

the crescendo rises

higher and higher

till the last note trembled

trailed off

those worshipping eyes

i saw

in the soft cloud of

my hair

the power

is mine.

Author's Notes/Comments: 

From the Bible characters.  King Herod who was utterly under the spell of Salome and her dancing that he vowed to give everything that she wished for.  It eventually wrought havoc to a prophet�s life.  It�s all about the dancer and the dance and the power they can wield.
