missed opportunities

Dancing in the dust By jfarrell

Dancing in the dust

By jfarrell

 

Here we are

Dancing in the dust

The ashes of dreams and hopes

Dancing around us

As we whirl and twirl

Entwined

 

Tango, fox-trot and the hippy hippy shake

We dance in the dust

We cause whirls and eddies about us

Ghostly images pulled together

So that we don’t dance alone

 

After the music, we find ourselves

Dancing in the dust

Reliving what-might-have-beens

Our ghosts respond with what might have been different

Dancing together

 

Dancing in the dust

forever

for goodness sake - do the hippy hippy shake
