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
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! ❤

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! 😀
I always wanted to learn tango. So far never did. Well, might be something which will remain only a dream.
Inese, you’re young enough. A young friend of mine tells me there’s an 80-year-old lady in her class.
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!
Are you still dancing, Christy? I had a bit of fun with that poem. I’m glad you think I managed to convey the passion of the dance. 🙂
I still dance but more just recreational style rather than lessons (out with my friends at clubs, etc.). Yes, you conveyed the passion well, Irina!
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. 😀 ❤
I was hoping you would like this post, Aquileana. Those dancers in “La Cumparsita” are outstanding, brilliant! Thanks so much for sending me the link. I’ll share it on Facebook. Cheers and hugs 🙂 ❤
Excellent to know that you enjoyed it!!! ⭐ makes me so happy! xx Hugs back at you!
Tango , most beautiful videos. Best wishes.
So glad you enjoyed the videos. 🙂
Welocome back, Irina! So beautiful poemmy dear friend and so swet tango argentino. With love maxima
It’s good to be back and read your lovely poems too. So happy you enjoyed my post. Cheers 🙂 Irina
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. 🙂
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
Merci Bernard pour ta visite et le beau bouquet de roses. Belle journee a toi. Bisous d’amitie ❤ Irina
I used to watch Dancing with the Stars regularly before. These great clips remind me of that show. Great poem, Irina!
Thanks, in! I’m glad this post brought back some happy memories for you. .
Bonjour ou Bonsoir IRINAS
Un petit passage par chez toi est une joie , un vrai régal même
Cela pour me dire que je vais bien
Quand je vole de blogs en blogs
J’en oublie mes soucis , c’est une vrai promenade
Mais avant de partir prochainement en vacances
Des vacances s’ils ont veux bien
Je tenais à te saluer te souhaiter
Tout ce qu’il y a de meilleurs pour toi ,profite bien
De même pour ta petite famille
Bisous Bernard à BIENTOT
Un peu de fraicheur
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
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!
My pleasure, Chuck. I’m glad you enjoyed the post. 🙂
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?)
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
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!
Yes, I haven’t been very active on WordPress lately. But I’m still here. 🙂
Thanks for the ‘follow’. Hope you won’t be disappointed. More than 6700 pictures – all in ‘full screen’ are waiting on you 🙂 Please enjoy!
