Dance on a Moonlit Porch – Friday Fictioneers

Dance on a Moonlit Porch

Gliding on the porch swing, breezes tickle my neck. We sit close, our legs dangle, our fingers connect.

Sweat on my brow, a kiss on your tongue, we dance on a moon-lit porch to a timeless song.

It carries me like petals floating out of reach.

Our feet light, you lift me and dip me before the door, then bundle me and love me until a quarter to four.

We drop and curl, our chests rise and fall, the glow of the moon in our faces. Together we meet in each other’s dreams and dance by the light once more.


Genre: Romance (100 words)

This story was written for Friday Fictioneers 100-word photo prompt. Thanks to Rochelle Wisoff-Fields for hosting and for the photo this week.

I just love porches. I’ve always wanted one. I’m feeling love in the air. Happy Valentine’s Day to all!

I have a big weekend of water polo ahead of me. So no candlelight dinners, but I’m looking forward to this tournament. I will do my best to read your stories when I can. I may be a bit delayed.

      1. Well that will be worth the drive then – think of me here in Ohio on Sunday where we are supposed to get record breaking low temps and hopefully that will make that drive much easier! 🙂

  1. Awww, sweet verse, Amy. As the temperature plummets close to one whole degree this weekend in NYC, swaying on a porch swing in sunlight or moonlight works for me. Enjoy indulging your inner romantic this weekend playing water polo. That’s quite an alternative to the usual hearts and flowers.


    1. Thank you. Brr…stay warm. Well, I won’t be playing water polo, only watching. 🙂 That’s enough for me. I hope your have a great weekend, too, in front a fire place and under a cozy blanket.

    1. Thanks, Honie. It seemed like a good time for the romantic in me to come out. I really have always loved porches. I couldn’t write anything dark about them this time. Maybe next time…


  2. You brought to mind one of my favorite songs –
    Well, it’s a marvelous night for a Moondance
    With the stars up above in your eyes
    A fantabulous night to make romance
    ‘Neath the cover of October skies

    How appropriate on Valentine’s Eve. It made me smile. 🙂

  3. I’m not sure how I missed this. You know how I love your Friday stories.
    This one took me way, way back to summer nights under the moonlight. A time when things were simpler and young love was just a whisper. Thanks for the memories.


    1. Oh, thanks Michelle. Thanks for finding it. I’ve been missing lots lately myself. I think I need to clean out my inbox. 🙂
      So thrilled I could bring back pleasant memories for you. When love was a whisper, oh the days. Thank you.
