after the dance
walking home
alone

The empty house-
dust motes dancing
in a beam of sunlight.

passed the wired turkey cage
a strutting peacock

Snow flakes dancing.
Farther away a vague image
of crows taking off.

Horst Ludwig

over his grave she dances
moonlight serenade
calling her lord to join her

- Aleron

  
the dry leaves waltzing
partnered with the Autumn wind
dancing down the street
