grace and strength meet in
one toe-touching pike. poet
on ice loves movies.
No more lawyers! Please
skate 'til you're bald like Scott. Hah-
vahd will be just fine.
Faith lived out, flying,
spinning, falling. Your life a
testament of Grace.
"The Diva Dance"
Perfect twin spirals
Deeply etch black, pristine ice
-Just to see him stroke
Forwards down the ice equals
Any triple jump
The familiar grand strains of the movie music
Written words and symbols embroidered in silk
Focused concentration in your expression
The gallant spread eagles circling the ice
Somehow we forget we were ever tired
Of seeing the same moves in every program
Because everything seems so special
In the face of a "goodbye"
