A Tribute To George Abdo

by Jasmine Kahn

George is singing directly to me, it is as if his voice is making love to my dancer's soul.
He awakens something in me, slowly and passionately, arousing me to dance, caressing me with his voice.
The beat of the music, my emotions, I am dancing with a lover that can't be seen!
He skillfully and patiently possesses my every will. Together we become one and the same.
We are enveloped together by the end of the song, entwined into one, desperate never to be apart, forever lost in each other's souls.

About The Poet

Here's how Jasmine Kahn describes herself:

My real name is Deborah Skelley. I started dancing alone when I was about 5 or 6. I remember this because I was "caught" dancing when I was supposed to be doing homework. One of my favorite activites was to put some lively tunes on my tiny record player and dance.

I discovered belly dance when I was 24 (1979). After one class, I was hooked! I danced at the Wine Cellar in Cumberland, MD. where I met my husband. About a year later, I married and worked at nights. With two children and my husband in school, little time was left for my dancing interests. However, I made it a point, to have several hours each week of "dance exercise" with my sons. I danced with them in my arms as infants until they could stand on their own. We played all types of music from all over the world. I believe that their love of music is equally as important as their ability to read.

Now that I am older, and my sons are teenagers, I find time again for belly dance classes. I am enjoying the camaraderie of my fellow students and my wonderful teacher, Miabella, of Fort Worth. I will continue to dance as it is the life of my soul.
