Halloween Ballet

Orange Japanese Maple leaves

Autumn fairy ballet:
Ballerinas dip and spin,
Wings extend lightly and
Long costumes twirl.
A feast for the eyes:
Fall glows in shades of
Butternut squash and pumpkin,
With touches of berry and apple.
The wind lifts the dancers
Into allegro cabrioles, then
Holds another in a graceful arabesque.
TheΒ Fae Corps de Ballet
Performs every day.

Happy Halloween! Be spooky and be safe!

  1. Hi dear Brenda ⭐
    It is always a pleasure to visit you… I love your poem here …
    My favorite verses are :
    “The wind lifts the dancers
    Into allegro cabrioles, then
    Holds another in a graceful arabesque”
    Beautiful!… Thanks for sharing and best wishes to you, Aquileana πŸ˜€


  2. I saw this earlier – I am absolutely in love with this piece. I actually had to execute a cabriole – they were a specialty of mine as a dancer – I was able to knock off triples;) of course that was in the 80’s but – thank you dearly for such a wonderful memory. xx


  3. So perfect! I can almost hear the music — though I’ve been really trying to tune out the call of faerie music, at least while I’m at work, anyway. πŸ™‚ By the way, is that a variety of Japanese maple? It’s breathtaking.


  4. I like the Autum Fairy Ballet ver very much!! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ now I am off to bed, the scary part of Harry Potter is beginning and I dont want to see that! πŸ™‚ πŸ™‚ Good night! πŸ™‚ Have fun with the night fairies!! πŸ™‚
