Moonlight Slow Dance


eyes met
we gazed longer


as yours too


song playing
sweetly as ever


dimly lit
fitful silvery moonlight


hold hands
and slow dance



feels like
moonlight slow dance

      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 😉
