missed opportunities

Dancing in the dust By jfarrell

Dancing in the dust

By jfarrell


Here we are

Dancing in the dust

The ashes of dreams and hopes

Dancing around us

As we whirl and twirl



Tango, fox-trot and the hippy hippy shake

We dance in the dust

We cause whirls and eddies about us

Ghostly images pulled together

So that we don’t dance alone


After the music, we find ourselves

Dancing in the dust

Reliving what-might-have-beens

Our ghosts respond with what might have been different

Dancing together


Dancing in the dust

for goodness sake - do the hippy hippy shake
