Treasure Island

Leaking Pen

(Wellington, New Zealand)

Dance Floor Epiphany

Dancer caught off guard on a crowded street
Mischievous wind blows up her chiffon skirt
I am envious of her slender feet
With toes like eyes fixated on dessert
Civility rule on how not to flirt

Temptation musical chairs full alert
Whirlwind, exposed toes and my torrid air
Romance lost when lust aim is too overt
If it is my race for the winner’s chair
I only choose the dance floor upbeat fair

Dancer seduces the dance floor to peek
No moral binds its veneer planks to stare
Meaning in dancing her freedom to seek
Dancer’s heart desire to steam and flare
Romance intimate to a love affair

With dance her shattered confidence rebuild
Nightly joie de vivre accessible wear
Unlike 9 to 5 grind where skills are killed
She sparks in cha cha cha rope-spinning dare
Dance circles liberate her pent-up square

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I've tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
