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! In November 2020, we lost our beloved 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. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. 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.

    What sweet and nostalgic post. Well done with the words

  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.
