September Dance

Inspired by a beautiful man – a poem by Nancy Fijan

The sweetness of summer dreaming away,

Gazing at soft green leaves of a maidenhair tree;

Playfully cast words whirl and spin –

Just so, the chase begins.


The pink and purple glow of a setting sun,

When picturesque lost hours run vibrant,

Timidly uncovers rapidly beating hearts –

Both knowingly release each other, each taking part.


Dawn exposes weakness in becoming one,

Brutal old wounds buried beyond flesh;

Like changing clouds, both sides now

Nurture a sweet breath of life back into love.


Lingering nights, the openness of time,

Reaching a mutually exclusive vista –

Vintage straps holding on tight,

A magnetic sleepless grasp, with all their might.


The dance of autumn rustles with excitement

After each sultry longing step;

Healing, clinging with soulful tenderness,

Slowly swaying, stronger together in bliss.

One thought on “September Dance”

  1. Today, I went to the beachfront with my kids. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!
