Junior Prom

A sea of sparkling corsages and their colorful boutonnieres.

Arm-in-arm...hand-in-hand..cheek-to-cheek. They dipped. They swirled and twirled and laughed. They danced.

She - so young and beautiful...adorned and dressed in sweet pink. He - the boy next door and across the street - so handsome in his black tails.

A taste of first champagne.

A first kiss.

A night that saw the first light of dawn.

A lifetime ago. An imaginary dream. A hazey memory.

Was I? Were we? Ever that young and free.......
