A Kiss (2)


True love's empyrean expression of trust
Convergent destinies of twin tantalizing crusts
Coy her prelude yet pure magnetism her fugue
As two universes collide in their vermillion lube
Venus blowing sultry winds of seduction
Mars in his eternal blush basking in his scarlet complexion
She frolics in her many tones, butterfly, Eskimo even French
As the lips exude her moisture in a glutinous clench
A manifestation of love oozing the beauty of reliance
As two hearts anchor in to serine waters of dependence
Contagious is her anthem as she infects the heart's chamber
As dreams of eternity levitate from the lock of mushy amber
She is naked in her crude emotion yet rich in her pedigree
As she was spawned in antiquity from our ancestral tree
She is graceful like a virgin crane yet zealous like a Caribbean hummingbird
She is the symbol of emancipation for hearts blinded or blurred
She transcends divinity, even the suppleness of God's palms
As two malleable lips impart an infinitude of charms
She is the electricity for the endearing glow on Venus's face
She is the shoulder of Atlas that lift's humanity's maze
She will continue to reign our cradle of civilization
As she holds her fort as the priestess for the heart's ordination

Poem of the Day

poet James Whitcomb Riley

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
