Sweet and Sour – Argentine Tango


Argentine Tango in Buenos Aires

Your lips are moist and sweet
like a juicy mango
hot and sizzling
is your body’s every cell
while we buzz around
across the floor
the wild precision Tango

Our legs entwined
in teasing half embraces
for split seconds,
our hot faces
yearning closeness
briefly touching

Passion burning
in your stare and mine
till you thrust your arrow
the longest leg divine
to soaring heights
I cannot follow…
I detect your sour glare
the end of our love affair

This poem was composed in 2012 after watching Dancing with the Stars Australia on Chanel 7 and was published in Twisted Shorties II, an anthology of Gather writers and poets, available on Smashwords free of charge. The 2017 edition of the poem contains an important change in the last line of the second stanza: briefly instead of never.

Watch this amazing sensual performance! ❤

Dmitry Vasin – Esme Omerova -Showcase, Argentine Tango

WOW! They took my breath away.

Well, if you now feel in the mood to tango, just google Argentine tango and join Argentine tango classes, workshops and milongas (tango social dances).

Milonga is also a name of a tango style:


There are many different tango styles. You can learn basic tango steps right now:


Vamos a bailar! If only I were 30 years younger!!! 😦


Have a wonderful weekend! ❤ It’s good to be back. 🙂 Cheers, Irina

    Good to see you back, Irina! 😀

  2. I always wanted to learn tango. So far never did. Well, might be something which will remain only a dream.

    I took a tango class a few months ago and it really is seductive and skillful 🙂 I’m loving your poem as it brings to it the passion of the dance!

  4. Aquileana says:

    Such a beautiful poem and beautiful tribute to argentine tango… I am touched, given that I am argentine. 😉 Anyway, I only took a few tango lessons many years ago… It is a complex style of dance, I believe. This is a performance I recently watched on TV (a show which is a sort of Dancing with the stars in Argentina, It´s called Showmatch). I had sent this one to Christy Birmingham, who has commented here too 😉 ) They are dancing “La Cumparsita”. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5_N6_sV8cG4 Love & best wishes, my friend. 😀 ❤

  7. milliethom says:

    Yes, the first video certainly has the ‘Wow’ factor. It’s quite beguiling. Like you, Irina, I wish I were 30 years younger. Hope your break was productive and decluttering helped you to unwind, too. 🙂

    • irinadim says:

      Alas, I have hardly done any decluttering. 😦 Just enjoyed going out with friends, watching TV , and still surfing the Internet to connect with world news. Plus medical appointments! 😦

    Bonjour mon ami ou mon amie IRINAS belle danse le tango

    Je n’ai aucune raison de courir

    La vie me donne le temps

    Soit dans le sens du vent ou à contre courant

    Mais je vais toujours devant moi

    Même si parfois je piétine ou je vais à reculons

    Mais je réussirais et traverserais ce pont de L’avenir

    Pour finalement arriver chez toi

    Je te souhaite une agréable journée

    Gros bisous d’amitié

    I used to watch Dancing with the Stars regularly before. These great clips remind me of that show. Great poem, Irina!

      Merci de ton passage, Bernard, et tu as raison, on oublie ses soucis quand on passe de blog en blog. Bonnes vacances! Bisous d’amitie. 🙂 Irina

  11. Thank you for sharing this wonderful work! Loved the tension of the characters interwoven with the Tango! Really learned to love watching the Tango from the movie “True Lies”. Great clip.

    Thank You Irina for visiting my site and following! I’m looking forward to your future posts!

    Dimitry Vasin and partner was really something to remember, and unfortunately Tango will never be quite the same!
    (PS. Are we about to lose you?)

    • irinadim says:

      Thanks for commenting on this post. I was blown away when I saw this video, I had never seen these fabulous dancers before. Lose me? What do you mean? Cheers 🙂 Irina

      • Seenorway says:

        Aw, my old fingers just managed to send you a reply that for some reason disappeared in space! (Gone with the tango! 🙂 Wonder where that got to?
        I just installed a new program that automatically deletes any profile not having shown activity over the last 3 months, and I was afraid that you had possibly fallen prey to that program? 🙂 The days of having a thousand ‘followers’ that aren’t really there are over.
        We’ll not be going down that road ever again, but I’d love to have you onboard.
        All you have to do is to drop us a line once in a while.
        We have now exceeded 6700 ‘full screen pictures’ published. Please enjoy!

      • irinadim says:

        Yes, I haven’t been very active on WordPress lately. But I’m still here. 🙂

  13. Seenorway says:

    Thanks for the ‘follow’. Hope you won’t be disappointed. More than 6700 pictures – all in ‘full screen’ are waiting on you 🙂 Please enjoy!
