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 🙂
