Shall We Dance

Ah, the magic of night 

when obligations are over, 

another adulting day in the books. 


I rest my weary body, 

set my boggled mind free 

with a little poetry...


Your words await

like a teen with a corsage

to take me to the prom,

where we twist and twirl

under twinkling dollar store stars

and a paper moon.


Happy memories pop up

among technicolor balloons

that fill the room. 


Curtsey, wink, nod.

Salud, to our dance

that’s over way too soon.

Thank you Dorothy! Isn't that fun? I just love when a poem, story, video sends me on an adventure to learn more. I love both those movies (and just about any romantic movie, from Thornbirds to Letters to Juliet, but of course the goth/romance Wuthering Heights is my absolute favorite). I hope you get a chance to watch The King and I. It's a sweet treat!

A beautifully penned piece V. Simply loved the video. Made me search n watch kept me occupied this morning after waking up....hehehe
