A Dance

Through the looking glass

images of another time

my mother dances

to a metronome chime

In pink winklepickers

matching her flowing pink dress

her body flows

movements without distress

Lightening up

as the metronome ceases

she twirls around happily

as the melody eases

A young man enters

casually takes her hand

a meme of formal dance

practice before the evening band

Together they dance

now act as one

a flow of happiness

having fun

The dance ends

the man drops to his knee

a marriage proposal

she screams with glee

A life together

which began with a dance

continuing to be eternally one

eternal romance
