A little over 7 years ago, I had just started dating my partner. He took me to River Fest because Keb Mo was playing that night. I love Keb Mo, and at the time, he had never heard of him.
So, we battle the beer stained crowds and make our way over to the stage. We find a place near the front, but off to the side. Even with my lil’ hobbit legs, I can still see the stage. He made sure of that.
Keb Mo is playing this gorgeous steel guitar, the AR River is next to us, and this beautiful man, whom I cannot believe is with me, is standing behind me.
I begin to dance, and his hands gently circle my waist without restricting my movements. Perfection.
& my Heart lets go…
“Sway of hips
Circled by hands
Intimate dance with steel guitar
Smooth stone of blues
Skips across river
To the shelter
