Thinks & Inks

By @astrid_hartman

Pointe

Slick pink,

Soft,

Two ribbons intertwining 

As she pulls them on

 

She stretches 

To her fullest height,

Feet arched 

In the most uncomfortable manner 

But she feels nothing,

No longer do they hurt her feet 

 

As she extends her leg,

Head raised, 

Arms out,

I marvel at her grace 

And elegance,

Always breathless 

From seeing 

The beauty, 

The strength, 

Of a ballerina
