Treasure Island

Dilantha Gunawardana

A Protracted Kiss

When your lips held me close
As you gently leaned on your toes
Love unsighted, guided by sentience
As twin mercurial lips were entombed in patience
I could feel your silken cover
As I pressed against you my lover
Like satiny rose petals your perfect summer skin
As my universe blazes to your warmth within
Hold my lips tight, never let me go
Caramelize my heart to your furnace’s glow
As silent lips speak the language of love
Strewn are blessings from the heavens above
As the sun descends on a monsoonal twilight
A kiss lingers on even to the advent of moonlight
Enshrined under an umbrella on a populous beach
As twin succulent lips converse bereft of speech
As the heart enraptures to the call of ebullience
The moon brightens the surroundings with her effulgence
As the weary lungs draw a soothing passage of air
The lips unclasp for the eyes to engage in a magnetic stare
Only for giggling laughter to erupt from the lass’s visage
Echoing to the corners of the pristine white plage
As two lovers part content of a day’s work done
Reminiscing how two lips merged under the setting sun

poet James Whitcomb Riley

When the frost is on the punkin and the fodder's in the shock
And you hear the kyouck and gobble of the struttin' turkey cock
And the clackin' of the guineys, and the cluckin' of the hens
