Taking Flight

They were out all day. After dinner, they went to the after hour lounge. An eclectic group they were Greeks, Americans, Italians, and a Jamaican.  All eyes were on them as they entered. The six foot four inch hunk on stage started a sultry tune in greek; his gaze fixed in their direction, strumming his guitar. They now had the full attention of everyone in the place.  Stares turned to smiles as patrons swayed gently in their seats as the song progressed.  She just knew it was about her. Her ears were getting hot. So she took a deep breath, held a nervous smile and with lips barelymoving she asked, “Ok, what is he singing”. The response, “He is serenading you”. Song over and with the whole place watching he left the stage and moved towards them.

Taking flight-
A butterfly shrugs off
Its shadow
