Olé: On a Flamenco Performance


Red dresses ruffling

Feet moving quickly but with great control

Musical instruments playing to the rhythm of the dancer’s feet

As the audience yelled “olé!” with delight,

Tipsy from the fruity sangria served

The man and the woman moved with such grace

complimenting each other’s movements without fail

The live musicians closed their eyes and swayed with the night

and the man and woman smiled with every clap

convincing us that the night was still young
