My parents were great dancers, they
met at a dance during the great war. I
remember Grange dances, occasionally
dancing with my father, my feet on his feet.
During the years, mom and dad still
danced, especially after retirement,
seeking out dance clubs where they
resided, Florida and New York,
depending on the time of year.
After Dad’s stroke, he tried to
dance, but had less and less
mobility. It was the end of an
expression of love for them, it was
Dad is in a nursing home now, newly
relocated. He is not walking, let alone
moving his feet to rhythm. I take his laundry
home, to clean, this way things don’t disappear.
I am adding clothes,
mixing dad’s clothes with moms,
thinking, shirts and pants are together again,
twirling and swirling, remembering Glenn Miller,
dancing, reliving sweet memories.
