“Nobody puts Baby in a corner.” The character Johnny Castle in Dirty Dancing.
You in 1963. Kellerman’s Resort.
Me in 1987, some movie theater
You danced. Oh how you danced!
I’ve watched, over and over.
Over thirty plus years.
always the same.
You in 1963,
Me in my living room,
watching a DVD.
An odd poem to post on Easter Sunday….BUT I’m following Toads prompt for National Poetry Writing Month, day 12: write a poem to or about someone you love who doesn’t know you love them!
Well, I have family and my beloved of 50 years….and really can’t think of someone who doesn’t know I love them….I’m a very demonstrative person! So best I can do is the character from Dirty Dancing, Johnny Castle. LOVE his moves and have watched the DVD many many times over the years. Also love dancing to Time of My Life with my hubby….but we don’t do the lift!
Oh yes, who didn’t love Johnny Castle!
Love this! 😀 Johnny Castle is a legend! 💝
Oh yes, who can forget, I still watch about once a year❣️🙏
That movie takes me back! Then he lived his own love story, both of them succumbing to cancer. So sad.
Yes, indeedie! I danced inspire of my terrible dancing ability! Still love that movie and it’s message! N

Oh, I love Dirty Dancing…The dance continues even when the dancer is gone.
I enjoyed the poem, Lill, but I’m one of the few who has never watched Dirty Dancing.
