Daily Prompt: Parallel

In a parallel universe
We could be sitting before
Each other, taking in every
Nuance of our connection;
And our souls would meet
On such spiritual planes
That they would flow and
Weave us together again.

Daily Prompt: Genie

We could be genies
Granting wishes that
We wish to grant.

The Bachata – Part One

Something I promised a friend; part one first while the rest writes itself, in due time. 😉

Dimly lit and cosy, the interior of the bar contrasted sharply with the summer sidewalks and idyllic outdoors.

She made her way casually, yet not undeliberately down the hallway. The men glanced up and stared; they always do. But she was not distracted.

And there he was.

Tailored blue jacket thrown over white linen shirt and fitted blue jeans, accompanied by the usual glass of red and an air of relaxed elegance, at the far table beside the curtained windows.

She turned and walked in his direction, a slight smile turning up the corners of her mouth as he looked up that instance and saw her. He smiled, then got up as she arrived at the table.

“It’s been a while.”

“Indeed; how have you been?”

“Well, life goes on.”

“Like a bachata.”

“Yes, we dance – sad words to beautiful melodies – and that makes life more bearable.”

A smile in his eyes, and she could not help smiling back. Linking her arm in his, they walked down together to the dance floor.

Affogato

Where intensity meets
Smoothness; kick in with your
Sweet strength, loaded.

Daily Prompt: Thwart

Sundays are meant
To be slow and sultry
Tousled thoughts and
Late-up sheets.

Unfortunately, I’m working.

Or is it? 🙂

Bale

If you reel me in,
We’re probably pieces from
The same bale of thread.

Smile

I love how the corners
Of your mouth turn up when
The light shines in your eyes.
