Found Hearts

The ballet teacher asked
our kids to find their heart beat
She turned the music off
quieted the class
and held her hand to her chest
Like this
I waited
and then
loud and clear
I hear her
I found it!
She turned to her friend next to her
Can you feel it too?
Her friend’s face lit up
I do!
The music turned on
and the class returned to dancing
their bodies moving across the floor
filled with joy
at what they had found
