A dance so queer

the given words:
dance dream trample
vapid (flat,flavorless,dull)
pictures,spin,stun,pan
translucent (allowing light to pass
through but not transparent)
seem
grid (network of lines)

A dance so queer in his dreams
Passed fleetingly through
Trampling on various occasions

Rather vapid it registered vague pictures
Whereas ocean waves lapping the shore
Were rightly more consistent

He could spin a story most likely to stun
And to pan to the curiosity of friends
But he held back

It was translucent and
Seemed nebulously myterious
It was picturesque and grid-like
A dramatic concert but still
Frighteningly kaleidoscopic

Never had it so good
But at odds to have it shared

For Brenda's Sunday Whirl #224 and
