Slow Dancing (Guest Post)

It is with great pleasure I introduce to you D.B. Colson. A fellow poet with whom I am have fallen madly in love with his beautiful poetry. He is a man of great talent and with honor, he has allowed me to share it with you.

Slow Dancing

In one another’s embrace

moving with each other

to the rhythm of

Fitzgerald and Bennett


Absorbed in sensation,

discovery and arousal,

neither future or past,

An exquisite memory


With many years since

and some idealization,

Something lost, grieved,

but not surrendered.


Yes, and most precarious

you remember me.
