Velvet embrace

Couched in the velvet embrace 
We melt into the violin stretches

We mark the strong notes, the bandoneon makes
Then stretching the pause as if we had
All the time in our lives 

catlike brushing, sensuous steps
We disappear in the embrace.

Become one to tango


Moments of stretched silence 
When the music finds a way in
Breathe in the flow breath out the music 

The winding axis brings the turn
The touch will pause the moment 
Suspension infuses rhythm into silence 

The wind rustles the leaves 
The trees swing to the rhythm 
We hover like the hummingbird

He lingers in suspended time
Before he pivots in midair, changing  direction
We reconnect, by embracing the music 
My partner uses the moment to adorn

The mysterious flapping of wings 
Around the foot gracefully planted
The music turns the leader who only leads himself

And becomes the follower .
