Five Minute Friday

There is a moment right before it when you realize what's coming next. You feel powerless to change the outcome; it is going to happen. Unless... you flail, reach, grab and grasp to stop this thing. Your flailings change the choreography, the steps to the finale. Step-ball-change, step-ball-change, shuffle step, shuffle step, heel, toe, heel, toe, shuffle step, toe catches, aaaaahhh here it comes, knees buckle, hips sway, arms and body join in a desperate arabesque until you find your partner's arms, pulling together into promenade position and your fall becomes a stumble, barely perceptible from the mezzanine.

Today's FMF word was "Fall".


  1. Thank you for sharing a lively piece of writing.

  2. "Barely perceptible from the mezzanine." Lovely! Loved how you shared on this word Fall.


Whaddaya think about that?
