For Charlie

As part of the word prompt exercise using the word shadow

Their story cast a shadow
On fine white linen drapes
Played out with brilliant beauty
Upon a fabric landscape

She was seated at a table
He reached out for her hand
She gracefully accepted
Then stood at his command

He took her gently in his arms
In a tender sweet embrace
and they began to dance that night
around the room with grace 1 comment

They paused for just a moment
As he lifted up her chin
He kissed her softly on the lips
And they began to dance again

This night was the beginning
And soon became much more
Their dance would last a lifetime
Their love applauded encore

Their story cast a shadow
On fine white linen drapes
Played out with great devotion
Upon a fabric landscape
