Haiku: A Tango Or Two...

"Let us read and let us dance -- two amusements that will never do any harm to the world." Voltaire

Shall we dance again?
Do the Tango in the rain...
Argentina style

A Tango for two...
Heat reduced by cool, white suits
Slow, hypnotic dance...

Today, the word is Tango (Argentina)

What is Carpe DiemBlog Owner, Kristjaan Panneman,  describes it as:  "a weblog on haiku. It's a new daily haiku meme where you can write a classical or non-classical haiku on a given prompt. Haiku is an ancient Japanese poetry form. A haiku has three short lines and describes a short moment (as short as the sound of a pebble thrown into water). Mostly a haiku counts 5-7-5 syllables and is sometimes called 'counted verse.'"

 I love dance; all forms of dance. Tango, which originated in Rio de la Plata, part of the border between Argentina and Uruguay, is sensual, undulating and captivating to watch. It remains a competition dance floor favorite. More Below!
