Entry #3 Poetry: Sand Dancing by Sally Chambers

Sand Dancing
by Sally Chambers

Feather light she whirls on tiptoe
Diaphanous gown swings fair and free
A lithesome figure in pale star-glow
Lost in joy beside the sea

Hemmed in by tidal pools and ocean
Weaving lines beneath the moon
Rapt in the never-ending motion
Her steps draw closer to the dune

Sandy shadows mirror grace
Footprints follow in her wake
Sea foam laughs creating lace
Atop the waves that toss and break

Sand-danced love lifts up to God
A yielded spirit filled with peace
Praiseful rhythm meant to laud
Designs a prayer that does not cease
