i search for a song
to partner with for our dance
ignite fast smooth foot work
minor chords the wind
i hear the music
of a seven forty-seven-8 jet
wings slice sky
as my toes tap salsa
Orchestra de La Luz*
at last, the song
I choose for me and you
with slow sensuality
arms spread in Mariposa
we’ll fly into the sky
our souls will be free …
all the steps we’ve practiced
will surely take us there.
I have a dream
where no secrets lie between us
loyal and true
intimacy is our perfume
laughter is our music
love our key of C
in the glow of moonlight
we forever tango
is our hill top view
with rolling fields of memories
the grapes of wrath have settled
the wine of life pours savory and sweet
lets make a toast to vintage 2008
it’s been a very good year (an oldie — 2008)
*orchestra de la luz –a Japanese salsa musical group
*mariposa is a salsa step/embrace with arms spread like a butterfly.
