Poetry Corner: The Dance of the Kitesurfer

Several pliƩs in the air,
following the melody of the wind.
Each wave is their beat, to prepare,
for the moment of magic within.

The music composed by the crashing of waves,
with the rhythm of the wind on their face.
The spotlight shining down from the sun's rays,
their five senses alive and embraced.

A jump, a glide, a touch of the water.
a speed unprecedented but controlled.
For this is the dance of the graceful kitesurfer,
through the eyes of a dancer it was told.

- Jessie Jing, 3rd June 2012.
