English: A still portrait of actress Ginger Rogers issued by a movie studio (RKO?) in the 1930s. (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

her hair was golden
rays of sunshine

her hands regal
delicate and soft

her smile so sincere
and devastating

her every move
a dance step

her heart was open
and beating so true

her eyes were windows
to all that I had lost

    This is not really about Ginger Rogers, but her picture really does fit perfectly, I think.

      Thank you. I started with just the desire to build something around “her hair was golden” and this is what I came up with. Love the picture of Ginger.

    Wonderful portrait in words.

      Thank you. I originally had more to this portrait, but I really like to keep things short. And after I found the picture of Ginger, I limited myself to about enough lines to go along with that. Ginger did inspire the additional “dance step” line, though. 🙂
