Painted Toes for The Mag

Tess's picture prompt for our word creation

PAINTED TOES

Dance on ivory keys 
Recalling the craziness 
As we rolled 
The piano outside

My sheer dress 
Slid across the piano top
As you called me
Your music queen

We made our own music
Chiffon fluttered in the breeze
You ran the scales
Higher than ever known

Our souls sang a duet
Creatures watched
In Nature we became
The Wild Things

Marvelous response to the prompt.

I sat and stared at the photo for at least a minute or two before reading your poem.i came up with nothing at all, i just thought how dumb to sit on the piano and mess up the keys with her feet.
yours is much better and makes more sense.. my practical side can't see things like what you wrote.
