    Ah, yes, I am familiar with this as well. My son loved to dance as a boy, the music would take hold of him, but now, as a teenager, it isn't going to happen. :)

    Ah, wonderful!

    I was facilitating poetry workshops in a school recently and the kids were 10-11 years old. When compared to the last group I worked with who were 14-15, the younger pupils were so much more enthusiastic from the start and immediately began to offer lines of poetry. It's the same with your dancing boy. I love the use of the negative in this haiku, it is a little like a riddle. :)

    Nice one. It's easy to make your little boy dance in his own way but when teenage hits them sure you can't make them do this anymore. I'll keep visiting your post.
