'Dancing Girls'

The eternal war
Of sea against shore,
Raged on-
Holding no quarter.

Earth and stone, grinding away,
Blood and bone, decadent decay.
Dancing Girls-
Sharing secrets, flesh against flesh.

As the girls danced-
Under the bright moonlight,
They were something to behold-
Oh, they were a sight.

Dancing Girls-
Holding each other tight.
Throwing care to the wind,
Dancing past the waltz's end.

Onlookers stop and stare-
Oh, how they gossip and drool,
Whisperers a knife in their back,
How can people be so cruel.

But the girls
Just kept on dancing on-
Not caring to ever look back,
Forever entwined, beauty untouched.

They shared their passion with the crescendo-
Of the wind, and the sea, with the moon, and the stars,
The musicians recognized their beauty-
And they joined in with their guitars.

The crowd of people thinned out,
And very soon, they were gone.
Leaving the girls alone-
Alone in their trance,

Alone to their dance-
As the eternal war
Of sea against shore,

Raged on.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

While in Málaga Spain, I witnessed something that I can only describe as Magic. This poem, 'Dancing Girls, ' was inspired by that magic.

    Sort of a mixture of Both... Saw the girls in Spain, such a magic moment to witness back then...
    then wrote about it later... recapturing the magic that I felt, the passion from my words, matched the passion the girls felt... Rachel, all I can say was that it was an amazing moment and I was very privalaged to have witnessed it... Magic! ; -)
    Thanks for reading me, esp. that one, for it's one of my best!
