This Perfect Moment (for Anita)

Skip the laundry,
dump the chores.

Come to me!
These open arms
long for you,
ache for you!

This perfect moment
doesn’t come everyday.

So let’s dance,
in this kitchen.
Close your eyes
it’s a ballroom.

It’s not everyday
the radio plays
the Del-Fonics.

  6. Loving this! Nothing better than an impromptu dance with the one you love, barefoot and in the kitchen or the living room - chores and cares be damned. Wonderful take on the prompt! :)

    I remember the song "La La Means I Love You" by the Delfonics. I hope she took you up on your invitation.
