Good writing, with a strong point and with life oozing out.

her dad is a reticent fellow
given to long silences
of glassy-eyed reflection

and in social places
will blush at the mere witness
of dancing or musicalĀ  movement

but for her
with great gusto
he will do jazz hands

just to see
the glee in her eyes
the pink on her cheeks

gummy grin
squinty eyes
and belly laugh

    I am so tickled to know the girlie loves jazz hands…I do them all the time hear for my girls (neighbors) and they are 12!
