Homage to Romance

Recommended Posts


Homage to Romance

a dust of diamonds
in the midnight Galaxy
glitters high above
an outdoor dance floor empty
all but for one lone couple

holding each other
lovers dance to their own tune
charging the moment
caught up in the melody
of magic and moonlight

the music hushes
all too soon the night will die
they cling in silence
reluctant to say goodbye
to part at the light of dawn
~~Judi Van Gorder


Aubade in Tanka frame

Inspired by the prompt "dancing under the stars" and Tony mentioning the genre Aubade.

And a very accessible aubade it is! The three individual tankas aggregate nicely into a lyrical whole.
