Hour 3 – The Smile
he stood listening to the beautiful music
played by Cello’s in the Park
With the crowd clapping and swaying in time,
he smiled at the woman passing by.
smiling back, she extends her arm
shy, he mouths “I’m no dancer”
“follow me and keep smiling” she says
1234, off they go in hold to the joyful beat.
The crowd clap, sway and cheer for the dancers
he forgets about everything, caught in the moment
a hop, a skip, a twirl, her dress extends fully
her perfectly extended arm folds, rejoining the hold
The Cello’s slow the piece down, then stop,
he smiles, she laughs as they separate and bow
the applauding audience wants more
as she walks away, looking back, he still smiles.
