shall we dance

You walked across the floor

bowed slightly before me

“Shall we dance?”, you said.

I laughed

because I didn’t know how.

You offered your hand,

your face, filled with optimism

your eyes made waltz irresistible.

How could I refuse.

note: Last Sunday, last day of Festival del Sole, Mrs. Abstract and I attended a concert featuring Midori, Ildar Abdrazakov, and the Russian National Orchestra. The Orchestra played several pieces including Masquerade Suite by Aram Khachaturian.
