You Are A Dance

You are a special thought I want to make room for,
On a comfy couch for two 
A soft pillow to hug, sprouting warm happy feelings
With every squeeze and every smile

A perky guffaw neither forced nor planned
Spreading hues of oranges, and yellows and greens
In my deprived, crazy mind

You are a dance,
Dedicated to all clowns and all lepers
Eyes lit up on a starry night,
Witnessing them shoot across the skies
Like diamonds on a high

I want to move with you,
Laugh with you
Lean forward and lose it,
I want to bump foreheads,
I want to ache on my sides 
And giggle till I collapse and cry

You are a silly handshake pulled into a hug
An adorable, laughable pug
A crazy hairdo, with an oversized hat that covers your eyes
And when I lift the hat, I see in those globes my face smiling back
Not caring how the hell this happened or when
Shrugging, as we laugh a sigh in surety,
Knowing that we’ll do it all over again!

    I'm sprouting warm happy feelings as I read through this ... so charming, silly, and very much YOU! Always quite original with your images ... but yet again I relate too it: A crazy hairdo, with an oversized hat that covers your eyes And when I lift that hat, I see in those globes my face smiling back ... these are lines to make a Scrooge blush! Don't know where you come up with this stuff, Laura ... but it's always a worthwhile and entertaining ride.

    As I read this I was hit with 3 smiles: One from reading, one on my face and the one in my heart! This poem is a "dance" Laura! :-)

    Hello Laura!! Dancing in general can, indeed, be so much fun. I really like the tempo, vivacity, and imagery of this wonderful free verse write. Excellent!! Cheers and Best, Gary

    It's funny that the best things happen when we stop trying too hard. This is really beautiful. It's easy and smooth and flows like the name suggests. BTW, dancing with someone is a great way to see and feel who they really are, but I see you know all that already. Hope you are well.
