One Dance ........

A thousand dances and millions of songs
what is it about this encounter.....
between one woman one man

The eye's have met perhaps more than once
and the yearnings begin to move....
he reaches to take her hand

And with a note the song begins as they meet
in the arena of passion all is formal
he takes her waste and she his shoulder

But before the dance is done a new
joining begins as swirling undercurrents
make them bolder

She ...looks up to his eyes ....and his
cheek brushes her scented
soft flowing hair

His fingers explode into flame as he touches
the softness of the dress as two dreams
cloud the air

A smile .....a small move closer.....
his hand slides around her waste
her dreams pull him closer

And the whole universe halts for just an instant
to watch them dance ....and then the earth
slowly regains its composure

And just for a few moments everyone watches
and dreams of a dance just
like this one

Though never .......not once ...can a dance
go on forever .....the dream is over
the music is done

As this song ends and she steps back thier
extended fingers release from the

Dreams ...visions....romance ....reflections
all rolled into expressions a
smile forms on the lips

And in silence One dance is done.....

To Be Continued...?

Felt like I was right there dancing and I could almost hear the music. Beautiful poem.

What a beautiful dance, don't let her go. This only happens, maybe, once in a lifetime. You didn't say what music was playing? I see it's to be continued. YEA
