A Kiss Catcher - Poem by Elena Sandu

Lost kisses lost kisses
With the wind may fly
After finding him sleeping
On his shoulder you lie
Roll up on him tightly
But with greatest care
Gently delicate kindly
Shhh! Don't wake him
shh..don't let him be aware
Then, all kisses! Once:
kiss deep:
the soul, not the skin!
-Vacuum any sad cry!
Spick and span cleaned
The heart of a child
Once again let rise!
Then slowly and kind
Sweet heart of a child
Let's start filling back
With goodness revived
And Smiles.. In biig size!


Poet's Notes about The Poem

This poem was written in a strange state of pure love mixed with pain of death. Played first with my body as a creative concept of imaginary movement then a few days later wrote it on a piece of paper. That week was days before and after the big tsunami of Japan.
Later was chosen to be played on stage as a sign language choreographed dance, in an art project of Tane and also as a letter read on the stage to few survivors of that deadly tsunami.
I am not sure why it got so much attention I suppose it may carry a bits of the emotions of that particular time...

    This is a truly great poem. You may be writing about a child, or the heart of a child in any or all of us. A kiss catcher...can this also be a dream catcher? Wonderful poem. (Report) Reply
