Tantalizing Tango

Written for:  Imaginary Gardens With Live Toads
Today’s challenge is to express dance through poetry. Pick a photo, a quote, video…Pick whatever inspires you. Write a new poem.

“Every dance is a kind of fever chart, a graph of the heart”. Martha Graham

Tango me in red seduction.
My body flows and ebbs
with your timely tides.
Your arms hold my passion
though it is only a dance.

    No, no, no! It is not only a dance. It is a test to see how you feel in each others arms without commitment.
