Dance With Me

woman dancing

[by Marjorie Jensen]

 

inspired by the Joshua Barnhart song at the Presidio Yacht Club

 

Inside, green lights
float over us—
your strings
my hands
her shoulders
her feet—
spin notes over skin,
through my hair.

Outside, bridge lights
traveled over water—
over boats
over her ocean-soaked feet—
and in through the window
to meet the green-lit notes
to join us on the dance floor.

Waves reflect the bridge lights
and we try to hold
the green-lit notes
in our bodies
like that watery embrace,
to reflect moon-dreamt rhythms
back to the stage.
