A magical gown beckons an estranged love
As a blazing sunset of crimson and gold
faded into evening, a worn dress of
delicate white lace and denim slid from its
hanger onto a dusty wooden floor.
Pleading to be worn once again, the dress
beckoned as warm memories of
yesterday's love crept into my mind.
A vision of two dancing in the moonlight at
water's edge, a kiss joining two hearts
surfaced. Hurridly, I slid into yesterday's
gown with the hope that it might possess
Swaying to a haunting melody that once was
ours, I was drawn onto the terrace facing a
sea aglow in lavender and gold.
The afterglow of the sunset cast a golden aura
upon a lone figure at water's edge.
Beckoned by his familiar silhouette, I
strolled down to the sea.
'Twas my love of long ago beckoned by a
mysterious force to search for a distant, but
not forgotten love.
As our eyes met, I joined him. Dancing with
my love near water's edge, I relived my glory
days in my magical gown of denim and lace.

|My majic gown to dance in was of lavendar and lace. Loved that dress but grew so fat it did not fit and had to dispose of it. It is like a long lost love now but memories of me wearing pop up still. Never to be forgotten gown.|
