daddy will you dance with your son?

twirling around
he twirls around
i smile for him
i worry for him
& for me

look around
eyes shifting quickly
go!
stay!
go!

catch the glares
wrap them up in my hand
throw the back

beats and rhythms fill our space
little feet move with big ones
orange, pink, and blue

toothless grin
priceless

Your poems tug at my heart. I hope you'll keep going.

Love this.

Thanks for coming over and leaving me something of you. I can add it to my collection of things I am hoarding from that day to make a scrapbook page.
