One Night is Enough

Slip-slidin’ along the wood floors
he circumnavigates the wonder
that is his wife
clasping her slender fingers
he twirls and he whirls
 
whistling while waltzing
to a tune she loves
but what is its name?
she doesn’t care
she sashays, she sidles, she sidesteps
in perfect sync to his motility

 on another night
they might shuffle out of line
lose the rhythm, forget the steps
but this night, this one night
this melody
is crystallized by time
to that ancient amber glow

through the years
they wheel and roll like
seabirds above the waves
humming a melody they can’t
put lyrics to
content to sing harmony
together, always together.

  1. Sounds like a beautiful relationship really. Some beautiful wordings. One of my favorites is:

    she sashays, she sidles, she sidesteps
    in perfect sync to his motility

    Nice that these two continue to sing harmony together over the years. A fortunate couple indeed.

  2. nice rhythm….and it had the feel of dance…i was working with my son tonight on a poetry assignment and we were talking about ways to create motion and movement…this is an excellent example of that…smiles.

  3. first…i love the picture…and then… yes…great verbs…and so cool to get lost in a dance like that…and those melodies without lyrics are the best sometimes…smiles
