Floating Kiss

A kiss in the air,
And a gaze,
Do not pass easily
Without a lot of questioning,
With a woman who lost
To be in touch with her femininity.
It was tenderly sent
To a feeble heart,
So sad, so poor,
With emotions
So mingled, so confused;
The heart is lingering
In the air,
In a coma,
In hibernation,
Dried out of frustration.
Hopefully it is not a hint,
Hints, not words push me
Towards anxiety and nervousness.
Is it time for awakening?
Or is the heart merely
Trying to taste the living?
It is wondering
About the sleepless nights
That have come forth
With a big force,
Trying to solve the riddle
Of a tender kiss,
Unlocking the door of a castle
Of its own, to free its passion
For life, for company,
To free itself from its fear of people.
Was the kiss aware
Of its effect
On an Arabic poetess?
Or was it just a Western jest?
Or a simple adieu,
Was it a sign of fondness?
Or barely a friendly kiss,
Can a floating kiss
Unite East and West
In such a miss? !
Can the analytical West bear the passionate East?
Can ice and fire mingle in peace? !
Well, it is just a kiss,
Yet, it is still A KISS,
Though it was only in the air.

poet Ralph Waldo Emerson

Knows he who tills this lonely field
To reap its scanty corn,
What mystic fruit his acres yield
At midnight and at morn?

In the long sunny afternoon,
