loves dances from a to z

angelically moving

like a belly dancer

who convolutes to a tune

she draped herself into him

her ethereal presence

formulated certain

gentle feelings

in that stone heart

inching towards his soul

he jack-knifed

knocking her

lovely form aside

as soon moribund

naked emotions

took over

progressing

quantifying

regressing

into sadness

like a heavy tomb

of umbrella.

a vellum fell from sky

walls demolished

x-axis of their love

intersected at y and z-axis.

"Love has to be three dimensional or may be four"

You are brilliant. You can even write a poem just through alphabet.

Awe, everything must intersect somewhere. This is beautiful. Hope your arm is feeling better today.

Nice one. And isn't it a good feeling to follow own rules and to succeed at least?

Best wishes

i would definitely say this fits the bill for our dictionary exercise. this is executed wonderfully, the bolding of alphabetical missives a nice touch. beautifully worded. -lawrence

Especially enjoying the final lines: "x-axis of their love /
intersected at y and z-axis."

This flows as I imagine dancing with my love. (You wove those prompt words in seamlessly.) Well done!
