At masked ball




i wear the night
silky purple & silver star 
          
under  the  peacock  mask
mysterious as blooming moon flower

i dream the dance - violin strings and trumpet beats  
under smokey lights - basking lavender scents and drama 

where anything can happen:
tangos, twists, or trysts

at masked ball 
Willow Manor 


My dream dress: Zuhair Murad

My dream date:   Hugh Jackman


Posted for :   5th Willow Manor Ball 2012  -  My first time to attend this ~ Such fun ~ Grace

  12. hee hee
    Tangos twists or trysts~great line!
    Judging by hugh's demeanor, it's either taking you too long to get into that dress, or out of it.
    And who can blame him?

  22. Now it makes perfect sense why Hugh couldn't take me! You really rocked in that dress, I can just bet (being his favorite color and all) but where did you two go? I never saw either of you on the dance floor, or the bar, or the balcony....were you in the west wing? I know, you can't share....! Right?!!!

  23. OH... Hugh Jackman! Your are the reason he didn't call me back. Well, I will be stalking him all night, sorry. :) And I KNOW where I will be Christmas day after our dinner ... we are going as a family to see "Les Mis" in the theatre. :)

  24. Feeling all fluttery here -- I'm not sure whether it's the poem or Hugh that's causing my palpitations: maybe it's a little of both. You look beautiful, and your date dances like a dream, you lucky thing!
