First Dance

by Joanna

Smothering the stars
Clouds are forming again
Waiting to catch
Just a glimpse of the
Rusty crescent
Low in the western sky
I walk home
From an evening of fun
Dress up clothes
Dinner
And video games
3 faces sharing smiles, laughter
And a secret knowing
A new light sparks this darkness
And she has the eyes of a tigress
Today we pored over fabrics
Dresses
Corsets
Ribbons
Underthings…
Finally assembled
We made our way into the night
Foraging for more than a meal
We are entering new territory
The heart says open
And indeed I find
That many of my desires
Are being fulfilled
Before the true dance
Has even begun
