She Became Silk in the Wind ...

She Became Silk in the Wind ...
By Gloria Faye Brown Bates/aka Granny Gee/@GeeGranny on Twitter

A younger Granny Gee/Gloria who loved to dance!

The music played loudly
Seducing the young lass
She stood in the middle of the dance floor

She wouldn't dance until the moment was right
She felt the music seep through her body
It felt wonderful ... she was coming alive!

Cold chills came over her
Felt so good ... because she was ready to dance
Dance ... become the music ... forget the world

She never saw her dance partner again
Once the music filled her ... she became the music
She danced to ... her body swayed, gyrated

She became silk in the wind
Winding, twisting gracefully
Flowing on the breeze

She was music ... no longer human
It was commented that she was so smooth
She held her skirt above her knees

Her beautiful legs danced to the beat
The crowd was mesmerized
As she twirled, spun around the floor

Her dance partner took a seat
To watch, admire her dance
One could feel she was in another world

As the music began to come to a close
She slowly let her eyes focus on her surroundings
She loved this feeling ... she was human again

She shook herself as a thrill moved through her body
Took a deep breath ... she was ready to dance again
She couldn't just go sit back down

She stood there ... the music began to play
She slipped back into the other world
Danced to her heart's content

Her dance partner let her dance
He didn't even try to keep up with her
No way he could become music ... move like silk

The time came for the music to end
She had to come back to earth
When she did ... it was with a crash

She wanted to stay high on the breeze
Swaying, moving like silk
Never coming back ... but, dance forever

She was a human wanting to become music
Dance always, never come to earth again
Sadly ... she had to land until another day

To happily dance ... become the music
That she loved best in the world
She was music in a human body

All it took was a beat or two
To take her away
To become silk in the wind

Dancing, swaying in another world
Where she was happiest at
She became ... silk in the wind

I have always loved to dance.  When I was younger, I couldn't stop dancing.  I became the music ... forgot the world.  I wanted to dance forever.  At one time, I could take the dance floor ... everyone would clap, cheered me on.  Happiness was dancing the night away :)
