FTP 4 Ecstatic

Hips raised, swaying to a rhythm only she hears, she taps a beat on a floor polished by countless women before her. Fingers soundlessly smooth worn castanets. Her breath catches with the first strum of the guitar.

The light shines softly on the player as he fingers the melody. She picks it up with her heel and her quick fingers. The light moves, her head thrown back she is transported, ecstatic for the dance.

This week’s word is Ecstatic. The word limit for January is 75 words. This one comes in precisely at 74.


  1. A fun, lighthearted read, Val. So fluid and evocative of a happy, upbeat dance. Very nice!

  2. I felt like I was in the swing of the dance with her!

  3. Quick, but oh-so-evocative. Lovely!

  4. I LIKE this because the foot tapping and rhythm are loud and clear! Can you hear the music? I can.

    Oh, I want to do that! 😉

  6. Love these!

  7. Makes me want to grab my own castanets and start dancing. I’m sure my kids would love that. 😉

    Nice piece!

  8. F.A.B.B.O. ❤
