Dancing with the Moon

This day is a heat lined river
flowing across these bare feet
like summer in pools
and swimming holes where skinny dipping
is a pure frolic
and splashing laughs hard and sweet
this day like velvet slippers
laid in petals of glorious display
that quilts the land

and tonight if the moon is round
I’ll dance as raccoons  
in back yard pond hyacinth play
volley across the yard
and turn this warm magic
into a grass dance floor
where I pirouette
and point this dainty toe
under sunflower’s blossoming smile
because the moon is a partner
voluptuous in my interpretation
and I will dance with this light
in the silken slither of my lost youth
and be beautiful.

Martie~
You ARE beautiful !
Bare feet and all !

You are just the BEST !
Makes me want to shed the layers
and go skinny-dipping by the light
of the moon.
Love ya' - California gal !

The moon pales to the beauty of the poetry of its dancing partner.
