Ice Dance: A Poem

Two separate people
become as one
holding hands
touching
embracing
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 they’re seeing and feeling
such moments are truly golden

-A poem written by Christopher
after watching Tessa Virtue’s
and Scott Moir’s gold medal
winning performance
in the ice dance
competition
of figure skating
at the 2018
Winter Olympics
Pyeongchang, South Korea
Monday February 19th
2018.
