Little elbows on the table.
Keeping her chin on them just so.
Graceful Kathak dancers on tv …

When ma came running. Worried if her baby was hurt.
The little one gave an angelic smile and said something in her lilting tongue.
A mother’s heart understood and smiled. Her darling wanted to dance again…..
