Dancing Queen

Shimmy and shakin’
Having the time of your life
Dancing on my rail
claws digging deep
owning it
Knowing every bird watching
Will shake with fright
Hoping you will dance till night
And not take flight

Today at d’Verse, Lillian payed tribute the music group ABBA. They had only one number one hit in their career. It was the song, Dancing Queen. She asked us to take only one line from the song and us it in a poem of our choosing.  I chose the line, “Having the time of your life…”

  2. A great study there, “capturing” the movements….highly enjoyable, hard to do, and gives a new slant on those feathered friends!

  3. You’ve captured the photo’s image so well!! All the moles and little critters just want that hawk to keep dancin’ and shakin’ on that fence. Once it takes to the sky, their life’s in danger! Good use of the line!

    • Thank you, Cheryl. It was a beautiful bird!
      I have missed seeing you on the blog! Glad you are back again. I thought you might have been overwhelmed with too many post to keep up with. I find it had to keep up with everyone I would like to see on the blog!
