Day 10 Touch

10th Oct 2019

We come to day 10 in the poetry writing month.
Nothing amazes me more than being still here. We are a third of the way there and with a bit of luck I will get to the end of October with 31 poems written and shared. 
The prompt for today is Touch and my poem is in song form with a chorus. Hope you like it.
I welcome any feedback or comments to all of my blogposts.

Enjoying the Dance                                    

Embracing, gliding, likes swans on a lake,
We took to the floor, a couple to make.
Quick stepping through galaxies, up with the stars,
Fox trotting on  Jupiter, Saturn and Mars.

And they said we could never be
Happy together, you and me.
But we’re still here, proving them wrong,
Enjoying the dance and singing our song,
Enjoying the dance and singing our song.

At times we twirled and swayed too fast,
 Feet barely touching the ground, time passed.
Our toes would be bleeding our bodies sore,
But we carried on across the dance floor.

And they said we could never be
Happy together, you and me.
But we’re still here proving them wrong,
Enjoying the dance and singing our song,
Enjoying the dance and singing our song.

Our dance has slowed but we still glide,
Gently moving, side by side,
Our adventure will come to an end one day,
But we’ll twirl on, we know the way.
Chorus

  1. I'm happily smiling after reading your poem. Great vibe you conjure up with your words!

    I don't know if you have any ambitions to get published, but I feel this poem really fits https://abpoetryjournal.com/ They published one of mine in their inaugural issue, and I'm really happy with and grateful for that.

    1. I think you're right. Thank you.
      The dance goes on to the end, of course. And hopefully that's a little bit away yet
