Flamenco IIAt first it was an open fearful struggle
Learning the skills from the masters
Fearfully practicing these skills brought
Sweat, fear and the master’s angry retorts

As time changed, shifting around her
The struggles turned a strange corner
Fear was shoved behind hidden walls
As she worked with a fake, calm façade

By and by the world accepted freely
This fake outward calm as reality
And suddenly she understood
What lay beneath the master’s hood

They, the masters, didn’t know it all
They only conquered their fluttering heart
So with time, familiarity re-placed fear
And she became one of them. A fearless Master!
