My Irritations, Aggravations and Inspirations

“tealight dancer”

fluttering shadows

mixing with dancing red

and orange shapes

on my ceiling


my scintillated mind

with visions of her

pirouetting body

spinning through my head

in the sensual glow

of the tealight by my bed

  6. Tracy, I can just picture this scene: tea light, dancing shadows on the ceiling, your reverie with her dancing in your heart, and oh, yeah,the music I know was playing softly in the background. It’s a beautiful sight.
