The dancer's world
- Radhika Prabhu, Bangalore

September 6, 2011

Painting: 'Dancing Minds'
Oil on canvas by Radhika
Twinkling stars gathered in our palms,
The oceans quivering in the embrace of our arms;
Like a surrealistic dream gently unfurled,
It's a beautiful world; it's a dancer's world.

Mysterious emotions,
Haphazard meanings;
Strange relations,
Stranger feelings;
Yet on and on we dance along,
Through camouflaged tears behind the lights,
Through pains, smiles, and sleepless nights.

Like monsoon rain we drizzle on stage,
Movements breathe, magic happens;
Reds and blues,
Yellows and greens,
Stillness arches to a seven colored song,
When we dancers just dance along.
