The silence is refreshing and soothing on this Sunday afternoon as I settle down after walking the dog.
Trying to be creative in my writing for this post, I had a vision of Nature wearing rain as a garment, and as such, cloaking the fires of an angry Earth.
My thoughts were how to put it in a poem when a sun beam bounced light off the candle holder in front of my parents’ photograph causing the silvery hearts to wave and dance across the ceiling.
I find my mind drifting to years long gone, my Dad bowing as he took Mum’s hand and led her onto the dance floor under a glittering orb. Like one they glided across the floor with grace and elegance, their three favoured dances being the Waltz, Foxtrot and Military Two-Step. I would sit on the sidelines and watch in awe.
As they smile at me from the photograph, I hope they continue to dance and the stars provide them with the sparkles they so deserve.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have recently lost our beloved dog Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney, and now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of my GSD so had hers done too. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

  2. I too have fond memories of watching my dad and stepmother dance. I only wish my husband like to dance.

  3. How sweet. I love the ending – sentimental and full of fond memories and hope that their dance sparkles onward. Flawless incorporation of the words.
