Samba ~ a duet

Her approach, fills his eyes wide
A glowing beauty, dolled up to dance
His heart beats, to the sound of music
He feels the shimmie shake
As she steps, she takes, his breath

Extending his hand, she holds with a promise

This girl, is going to twirl, your head around
Twist and shake, bring you to the ground
Red lips inviting,
Those killer curves move
Smooth steps, in the stride of her heels

Boy, you best bring your moves tonight

Shoes are shined, pants pressed, even wearing a vest
Holding her hand, he leads her in a whirl
So all can see, this ravashing beauty
Legs like a gazelle, sleek and smooth
Watch the glide into his arms, as he embraces her

Square they stand, on the down beat they start

Raising her hips, to meet his chest
He tightens his grip
Around her waist, pulling her near
Then rotating her back
In loose steps, their bodies incite

Fan the flames, the heat intensifies

The orchestra fuels the vibe to drive
A seductive samba, that glitters
To the spin of a spinning mirror ball
As it caresses every move they make
Followed by the judges eyes in wake

The sultry sway, romancing the way

Their skin, licked with the salsa beats
Pounding hearts, to the bang of the drum
Her lipstick mouth and his slicked back hair
Their bodies mesh, slip and spin
Slide, in tangled limbs

She leans in with a whisper against his ear

As they hold the final step in a freeze
The music stops as applause erupts
The smile on his face, brighter than snow
But his heart has been chilled by words said
The sparkle in his eyes enhanced by tears

He wished that the music never ended

In silence,
Shadows dance, in seamless twine,
Two perfect strangers, transcended as one,
A brief affair, lost in the night,
Dancing in the moment, a moment in time.

Broken-A Duet withΒ Ax

I’ve had the honor of collaborating with Jennifer of INK AND QUILL before, the first time was a wonderful experience. This time, we both grew to appreciate the life we’ve been blessed to have and share, this stage with all of our friends here on wp. Yes YOU!! those who have dropped in to visit us, who have inspired us and who have supported us. For that, I know I may speak for Jennifer, we Thank You, humbly.

Dear Jennifer, no words, can a poet express to justify the admiration I have for you other than to say, thank you.

All my friends, if you do not know of Jennifer, please follow the link hereΒ INK AND QUILLΒ and enjoy the ride into a world where poetry is written not just by the moon and stars or by the waves that roll from shore to shore. Stand and gaze as the sun rises and sets, her light is the love and passion Jennifer fills with every letter strung to create her art.

Metallic Sea’s

A re-blog INK AND QUILL by poet Jennifer Calvert

an amazing writer and a favorite poet of mine, please visit her blog and enjoy her magic

Jennifer Calvert Author

ocean 1-the-siren-john-william-waterhouseMetallic seas and charcoal lands,

A crescent moon, low on the horizon,

Our bodies meet,

On the cliffs of narrow sea’s,

Flowing garments, and silk mist,

Wield in the wind,

Aloft in the night,

I search your eyes,

They cast a light to fires raging,

Flames wicker and weave,

Leaving ash and embers kindled,

Blazes across, to reach our feet,

In a moment of clutching angst,

We leap into the inferno of whitewash below,

Jagged rocks and hungry sharks to greet our fall,

In shores of golden beaches,

Under ruby skies,

Our bodies wash,

Our hands threaded,

Grown and nurtured,

Our hearts ripe,

We walk together,

Down an unknown path,

Drifting in love.
