Dance move

come on baby,
i like this move
swing your hips
round and round


slow, fast, slow, fast
i like to dance
tease you with my moves
twisting and turning
turning and twisting
until we got the rhythm


up, down, up, down
hands and feet grooving
swaying to the drum beat
grooving and swaying 
shaking my insides out          

come on baby,
i like this move
swing your hips
round and round


let's twist again ~

  4. I can feel this poem, Heaven! Twisting was really repetitious, when you think about it, wasn't it? LOL.

  8. This was fun...one of the first albums (yes, vinyl, I know...I'm dating myself) that my Mother bought for me was call Jukebox Jive...I listened to this song over and over and over...whoops...taking the prompt a little too far, don't think we need to repeat in the comments! Enjoyed the visit!

  9. Hahaha... "I'll give it a 95, it's got a great beat and it's easy to dance to."
    (Familiar quote from American Bandstand with Dick Clark) ... couldn't help it Heaven!

    you've got a nice, lighthearted touch here.

  11. Heaven your words are dancing off the page--great use of repetition, and also, dancing as a metaphor for all kinds of things, I'm thinking. ;_)

  12. Heaven~ You did a great job combining the two prompts into one... twisting takes lots of repitition.

    Don't you just love that video? It makes me want to get up and move. I'm glad it inspired you. Thanks for joining in!!

  19. OMgoodness...the twist.
    Love it, love the music,
    Chubby Checker, and the
    memory of my mother taking
    a year to get co ordinated
    enough to do it, and then
    it was out of style !

  22. Groovy song-like poem. It has a beat of its own. if it was set to music then i'd like to dance to it.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Oh how I love the twist! And yes, you've got the rhythm all right. :)

    ReplyDelete
  24. Love the light-hearted feel, the moves back to the old days swaying here to the now. Dancing the twist, but really most dance moves are comprised of that repitition we are looking for in our writing. Smooth to and fro. Nicely shared.

  25. Makes me think of my parents - their first date was a Chubby Checker concert. Thanks for sharing!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Good way to turn an ankle :)
    As soon as I read the last line (and before seeing the pic and video) Chubby Checker's voice was in my mind.

  30. Chubby Checker - "Let's twist again like we did last summer" - it was the craze a I came of age. Thanks for the blast from the past! Good one!

  32. Wonderful flow.
    And excellent video. Enjoyed this post.

  33. This has what I call "interior repetition" -- I wouldn't have realized it if I hadn't been looking for it. Great poem.

    ReplyDelete
  34. very nice, I enjoyed it. Let's twist again.

    ReplyDelete
  35. I loved the surprise of this. Was enjoying the repeating words and the rhythm of the poem....then scrolling down to that last line really made me want to dance! Lots of fun.

    ReplyDelete
  36. flowing words and like a song, just like how a dance should be.
    "i like to dance / tease you with my moves" this line stands out among the repetition as the emphasis. very sensual. beautiful writing.

    i believe you are a talented and fearless poet. and the poems of yours i read are inspiring and i'm truly grateful that i got to read them. therefore i nominate you for the Versatile Blogger Award. :)

  41. I love this. The poem brought me back to those good old days of dancin'. I used to hop out of my seat the minute I heard the song. Seeing the video brought back many , many memories. Thanks for the trip down memory lane.
    Great,
