A Step Half Made

A Step Half Made

A Poem by Jeff Bresee

As lightening shone and thunder blew,

I danced the dance that dancers do.


They danced it back and asked if I

would mind them dancing through the night.


I thought no harm could come of this,

besides, such company I’ve missed.


Thus on we danced so unaware

that torrent rains beyond compare


fell down in floods on higher ground,

and like a wall came crashing down.


Then somewhere in a step half made,

the dance I danced was washed away.


Now all that’s left for you to see -

remains of the catastrophe.


Oh, hopefully from this you’ll know…

don’t ever dance when thunder blows

A nice little exercise in creativity, Jeff. Arthur Murray or Gene Kelly might tell it differently, but I like your thinking. Song and dance can freshen a stale existence. Your imagery is lively and copious, and the couplets well rhymed. A fun read. Good work.
