Ice Dance: A Poem

Two separate people
become as one
holding hands
and then apart
twirl in unison
lift woman upon shoulders
woman spins around her partner
sometimes her head only inches from the ice
flash of blades
and glitter of ice
enchanting smiles
and moments of intimacy
in public in the arena
tender sweet sweet moments of intimacy
that magically allow the audience in
to see what theyโ€™re seeing and feeling
such moments are truly golden

-A poem written by Christopher
after watching Tessa Virtueโ€™s
and Scott Moirโ€™s gold medal
winning performance
in the ice dance
of figure skating
at the 2018
Winter Olympics
Pyeongchang, South Korea
Monday February 19th

    This is wondeeful.

    Yes, intimacy on ice.
    Where practice makes precise.

    (I wish not to hammer the point,
    but was that a ‘Tonya Harding’ moment ?)

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      LOL !

      No, it was not a Tonya Harding moment as far as the Virtue and Moir moment went.

      The Tonya Harding moment was where Crime Drama and Hitchcock met figure skating.

      What would have happened if Norman Batesโ€™ mother had had a daughter instead that she pushed into figure skating.

        Thatโ€™s your next story๐Ÿ˜Žpoem was just brilliant.intimacy on ice never crossed my mind๐Ÿ˜Š

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        But it does now. ๐Ÿ˜‚

        And your husband will be wondering ๐Ÿค” why youโ€™ve invited him to go ice skating โ›ธ with you on some moonlit night. ๐Ÿ˜‰

      • ortensia said,

        Here, you just sorted my plan for Saturday night๐Ÿ˜

      • Dracul Van Helsing said,

        LOL !

    The latest West End hit,
    Psycho … on ice, the Musical.
    a Disney production, where all
    the skaters come out swinging.
    With slice of romance of course.

  5. David Redpath said,

    And Ortensia, if intimacy on ice had indeed crossed your mind,
    you might find you are actually an Eskimo … or a Polar Bear even !?

    Once a magical golden dance of the Olympic.
    The one time we are granted to see the miracle of sports, flying for a seconds in the air and landed back again on ice.
    A dance of the human swans and fairies ballerinas in disguise, I believe.
    This is a beautiful poem, Chris!

    • Dracul Van Helsing said,

      Thank you very much, Sherry. ๐Ÿ’•

      I love your description of this dance as the dance of the human swans and fairies ๐Ÿงšโ€โ™€๏ธ ballerinas. โค๏ธ๐Ÿ˜Š
