Barbara Alfaro for Lost in Young Adults

by Louisa Klein

Once again, we host a poem by wonderful Barbara Alfaro, a lady who not only has a super-cute dog, but who is also extremely talented! She wrote this youth-related poem expressly for us and the Lost in Young Adults event!
 
THE DANCE
by Barbara Alfaro
You, breathless turn inside the dance
have asked before is he the one?
Is this only your new romance?
You, breathless turn inside the dance
of destiny, karma, and chance.
Another song has just begun.
You, breathless turn inside the dance
have asked before is he the one?
 
Info about the author:
Barbara Alfaro is a nice lady, living in the States (Maryland) with what I think is the cutest dog ever (I have a soft spot for animals, I can’t help it).
She’s the author of “Mirror Talk,” a memoir about a Catholic girlhood and working in theatre, a book of poems called “Singing Magic,” and a collection of plays titled “The Sirius Interview & Other Short Plays.”
Excerpts from all three books appear on her blog.
Each book is available on Amazon.com or can be directly purchased on her blog: http://barbara-alfaro.blogspot.com.
She’s the winner of a Maryland State Arts Council Individual Artist Award for her play “Dos Madres” and her poems have been published in various literary journals.
Her favorite authors are Charlotte Bronte and Charles Dickens and her favorite filmmakers are Woody Allen and the Coen brothers. She lives on the Eastern Shore of Maryland with her husband Victor and our neurotic miniature poodle mix Pip (the cute dog I’ve mentioned at the beginning of this blurb). She’s a native New Yorker who misses that shiny city of dreams. To buy her latest book, simply click on the covers below;
