Undulation, shimmer, glimpse, lost: prompt five  
The dancer emerged from the mysterious backstage obscurity that entrances an audience, hoping to glimpse the forbidden world behind the curtain. On the street she would have been no beauty with her dark, exaggerated features. But the shimmer of soft light and sequins loaned her a radiance, and grace she already possessed in abundance. The crowd’s emotions undulated along with her torso. Some, hypnotized by the combination of heady spices and sinuous arms, swayed to the music with glazed expressions. A few women stiffened and sniffed, refusing to meet her eyes. All lost themselves in a dance that forced them to look inward.
