Care for a dance?

        


Come to the dance ...




We will dress in sunset colours, wisps of pink and gold and blue,


We will drape ourselves in leafshine, fragrant blossoms for our shoes

Come twirl a nosegay, swing your rosehips, sip a cocktail filled with dew

The best of us will join together: sun and moon and midnight too

The music will be waves a-washing, the sand performs a jazzy tune

Feast your senses, thrill to romance, shimmer as the day breaks through

Come fling your words at random stars, as we caper in the mood.






Join the Party at Willow Manor


Also for those dancing mannequins at Poets United

Ah, yes, the mood setter - and such a love one concocted for this grand occasion. Shall I poor you a punch then? And we'll all dance away the setting eve.

I'm not sure I know what leafshine is, but I sure like the sound of it!

Helen said...

Meeting you in person? One of the highlights of the evening!!!

Isabel! This poem is beautiful and I must say you will give any poet in the room a run for his/her money. I will gladly sit out and rest next to you. And you must meet Clark... he does seem like more of a "meat & potatoes' man, but he is really quite interested in poetry... or maybe it gives him a chance to stop talking and take a drink and look at all the beautiful ladies in the room.. Either way, nice to finally meet you.

This is so inviting, Isabel. We can all be as light as thistledown through your dancing words.

Hi Isabel, I thought I posted a comment last week from my phone but it didn't go through. This is delightful and some very original phrases.
