Dancing: Who’s dancing and why are they tapping those toes?


The rhythm is steady, aside from a few late taps that cause the next to be much louder from trying to get back on beat.

She smiles because of it.

Music has always been her thing and she loves to she others enjoying it, even if they lacked any sort of rhythm.

That’s why it’s so beautiful to her. Music doesn’t discriminate. It’s there for anyone and everyone to love, to create, to listen to and it’s always there. No matter the situation, music is there to calm, to relax, to rejuvenate.

She gets lost just thinking about it. Closing her eyes and letting a smile grace her face, she takes it all in, beat by beat.

She can sit there for hours in the little live music cafe down the street. At least, it seems like hours, even if it’s just a few minutes.

That’s even more beauty of it. She can leave her reality and relish in a whole new one brought on by a melody laced with words, or perhaps a melody alone.

She opens her eyes and scans the floor. Tapping toes are everywhere. Another smile pulls at her lips because tapping toes only comes from one thing.


Sometimes I think these need to be longer, but then I remind myself there’s no rules to writing, just many guidelines (aka grammar–definitely follow grammar guidelines).

My goal with these prompts is to be writing everyday and pushing my creativity, my way of weaving words together, and my story lines in general.

It’s working very well so far.

Join in the challenge of pushing our writing limits with me! Write a prompt everyday and make sure to let me know, so I can read and cheer you on!
