Moonlight Slow Dance

 

our
eyes met
we gazed longer

 

my
heartbeats
as yours too

 

our
song playing
sweetly as ever

 

night
dimly lit
fitful silvery moonlight

 

we
hold hands
and slow dance

 

sailing

feels like
moonlight slow dance

 

P.S.

The poetic form used is hay(na)ku consists of a three-line stanza, where the first line has one word, the second line has two words, and the third line has three words.

World of Words prompt, which is a beautiful Bengali word “জোছনা” (jochona) meaning moonlight.

      1. doubt I could have done it Mich!

        Always wanted to parachute but knew I could never jump out of a plane … my brothers all offered to come up and push me out!

        I prefer to watch the birds with both feet firmly planted on mother earth ❤

  1. This is so beautiful, sweet, sigh-worthy 🙂 and heart-felt…and the form is wonderful! 🙂
    Oh, yay for parasailing! Great photos!
    We should all close our eyes…let go of the fear and uncertainty and replace it with a calming floating feeling. 🙂
    (((HUGS))) 🙂

  2. This also reminds me of when my children were little and I would have them put their feet on my shoes and we would dance a bit before story time 😉
