Donna and Dan - 15

Donna and Dan

Another post in the countdown to Dan and Donna's 25th anniversary this coming June, which I began back in December. It is my plan to post a story, remembrance and/or poem once a week for 25 weeks leading to the big date.

What do you want to do tonight?
Written somewhere in east Jefferson County, sometime in the summer of '97

Take time to swim in the faerie blue
of your eyes
A chance to watch elephant clouds dance
in the sky
Feel your fingers sliding baby smooth
in my hand
Some laughs and tickles and rolls
in the sand.

To waltz in poppyfields
'neath a grand willow tree
To delight in the moonlight
roll of the sea
To watch a sunset
steal the world's light:
This is what I want
to do tonight.
