sometime i dance
on a pin’s head
would it be easier
to thread a needle
sew the lid shut
but the music
it would still be calling
The music ALWAYS calls, doesn’t it? Tiny dancer indeed!
We cannot escape the siren call of the music in our souls, can we?
Rocks or not.
That’s beautiful. It has me on pins and needles.
I have a small award for you, please collect it from my blog: http://mydomainpvt.wordpress.com/best-blog-award/ and make me very, very happy.
With warmest wishes,
Thank you for your kind gift…and also for your wonderful writing.
Wow!! dats really nice Jaymie.
Dancing is good.
Very intersting perspective! Never did have my own music box- remember my neighbors with a tiny dancing ballerina tho- so cute it was.
The music always calls me, tho I don’t always dance. Tunes appear in my head n i wonder how they got there…
Thanks for the visit to ESR today!
You’re welcome! Found you through Jingle.
fabulous. i love to dance and weave to the music, sometimes even when the music is not there. smiles. nicely said.
The music is always there.
u rock this week,
writing every day with outstanding grace!
Feels good to be writing again.
happy that your creative juice is abundant!
exceptional beautiful love dancing poem!
Love hearing the music.
I wonder what made you think of this… The music will always call, let’s give in to it.
Actually, Horton made me think of it. Someone had a post about Dr. Suess a few days back.
Thanks for stopping by the other day.. I loved my music box when I was a little girl. It was fun to watch the girl go round and round..
Have a great weekend.
Love the colors and sentiments at your blog. You have a great weekend with your family.
I hope you hear the music for a looong time so we can continue to enjoy your brilliant words! Have fun today!
I think it is always there if we keep listening for it.
I like that metaphor, sometimes I feel like I”m dancing on the head of a pin myself. I wonder – would it be easier to thread the needle or impale myself upon it.
Are we looking for ease?
This is one of those poems which can have multiple interpretations and each would be wonderful…loved how you played with the words
I have an award for you here

Sweet. As sweet as poetry gets. Thanks for a timeless snippet.
A dancey sort of day.
OH GOD! YOU JUST SLAYED ME!!! My heart and soul shot out of my chest and I sobbed at Your words. Good Lord, You are SOOOOOO gifted, Jaymie. Thank You, Thank You, Thank You!!! Cheers and Namaste.
Splash some color over me Bliss and call me happy.
too bad you had to just keep winding it and winding it to keep it going…
lovely sentiments though…
but the dancing was the reward for the winding…
What kind of music do you like to dance?
I love all music. Anything with a beat will get me dancing.
I had one of those boxes when I was a girl… I loved that thing… til the little ballerina had bent one too many times, and wouldn’t stand up on that pin strait anymore. I remember feeling sorry for her… and myself.. but, really, she was a lot more realistic that way… I should have been happy for her that the pressure to be perfect was gone!
The pin is challenge enough.
I like this on too, i can respect where it is coming from. Good Job
Thanks, not sure everyone has the musicbox dancer memories.
Extraordinary! May I squeeze it?? L.K.
Thank you for the squeeze!
I know the feeling. I literally tried to sew the door shut on the music, but it still seems to find a way through the cracks and all the little spots I missed. Love it, J!
Music is good that way.
i’ve decided to delve backwards into your work and see what there is to discover.
I’ll certainly be back! (again)
Thank you for coming back Jasmine. I’ll be over your way unearthing treasures as well!
