CCCXLVIII - Pas de Deux

 Red Dirt Girl posted a collection of photos of nude dancers (careful!).
dVerse had a prompt to write something including words from a foreign language.
Well, what was I to do?  It's obvious, really:

A lady who danced in the nude,
Was sweet and gracefully imbued.
The lead took his chance,
And invited her to dance,
And together they ‘Pas de Deux’ed

  1. I'm bemused at being a muse, in only the smallest of ways. They say men are visual creatures - you certainly 'see' more than most!

    well done ;)

  2. Your poem has a beautiful music attached to it ... loved it :-)

  3. RDG: Your photos fill the artist's need for a naked muse sweetly, if remotely.

    Green Speck: Thank you.

  4. Great limerick Cosmos! Wonder how the dance could have ended - everyone all in one piece? Great!


  5. smiles....lovely...have done that...took ballet with my wife in college....the limerick form works well for this too...

  6. That was quite a sensual dance ~

  7. Great poem. Love the photo although if it was me, I'd prefer my top on. She could get a job at the Moulin Rouge xx

    An appropriate subject for a limmerick. I love the sound of Pas de Deux'ed, very silly!

    Wow! Our theme is somewhat similiar for this prompt which is amazing. The flow of your words is beautiful. Very fluid


You've come this far - thank you.
Take your time, look around,
There is lots to see.
