Backyard Disco

For the Midweek Motif at Poets Unite – Dance.  I was really into Disco in the 1970’s.  Gay Pride and free dancing were all born in the discos.

Backyard Disco
“Up above my head I hear music in the air that makes me know there’s a party somewhere” – The Trammps, Disco Inferno

Bees go back and forth in
weaving do-si-dos,
butterflies soar and dip,
hummingbirds hover and then zip!
it is a disco inferno in my back yard –
how the creatures dance
and make me dance too

    How few people pay attention to the dancing of the little creatures in this world! Thank goodness for poets who notice the zipping of the hummingbirds and the dipping of the butterflies!

    Years ago when i had a big garden it was always a delight to witness the constant activity of all the insects, birds and animals that came to visit to be part of my world. Your poem certainly took me back to when even I was dancing aound the garden!

    Oh, yes, disco! I was there, and now, along with the music you offer–I am seeing my back yard with a huge smile on my face.

    A wonderful dance of nature, Toni! The lightning last night was like a strobe, I can imagine night insects bopping to that!
