From ancient times
Girls were awkward
Though starting young,
Young flesh taunting
They shook their breasts
Their bellies danced,
© Charles Albano, 1998
Although not a member of the dance community himself, Dr. Charles Albano admires and finds beauty in belly dancing and other forms of dance as performed by women.
Charles loves to write poetry--poetry of a very broad and diverse nature, poetry that touches on interests ranging from dance to science fiction. He uses both rhyming and free verse styles of writing, and has been writing poetry for about eight years. He enjoys it because it requires creativity which, for him, is one of the personal footprints we may leave behind in this life.
Since boyhood Charles has been interested in the archaeology
and mythology of Egypt along with the native peoples of the Western
hemisphere, particularly Mayan
