Buenos Aires – Prompt Night A Dash of Sunny

Tango-entre-homme

If you let me

I would dance with you

I would offer my hands

my waist, my hips

my lips would almost …

leave their coral stain on your cheek

If you let me

 

If you let me

I would entice you with my feather feet

spark the floorboards

with my fiery stamp

whisper my fingertips over your wrist

and watch your pupils dilate at the very idea

If you let me

 

I will dance on my own

until then

I will be the vibration of the air

until then

I will be the music

alone –

until then.

 

Will you let me?


 

This week over at A Dash of Sunny, we are asked to write about dance. I took a slightly different tack, hence the picture I have included above. Here in the UK, with all of the political wranglings that are taking place, we seem to be in the midst of an overt anti-difference backlash. I don’t like it, not one bit. Everyone is equal. Nobody deserves to be marginalised.

Please do head on over to take part, or just read other offerings, if that’s all you want to do. But most of all, enjoy!

  1. Whistles!! ❤❤ Such a wonderfully enticing and sensuous poem Freya 😀 especially love this line “If you let me I would entice you with my feather feet, spark the floorboards with my fiery stamp.” Sigh.. beautifully rendered. Thank you so much for participating at Prompt Nights and for your constant love and support ❤❤

    Lots of love,
    Sanaa

  2. “Love the picture, and the poem, to me, evokes smoky bar room imagery of sweet seduction.” she replied.
    And, you’re so right, she concluded, that ‘Everyone is equal. Nobody deserves to be marginalised.'”

  3. The end question really brings into focus your postscript (yes..it’s a horrible time right now) – your imagery is fantastic – the coral stain and feather feet particularly – may you dance on!

  4. Thank you Freya. Botht the picture and the poem brought smiles to my face. The political turmoil is going on here too. When will everyone just learn to live and respect each other.
