Kissing’s Journey


Upon thy lips a word does whisper,
Upon its sound, the breeze will hang
And to its meaning, a kiss shall muster
And to my ears, its meaning sang

Across the world, this kiss shall travel,
Crossing oceans and drifting sea
And to my heart your word will journey,
Bringing love from you to me.

And to the sun, a kiss returned now,
Through the heavens in warmth with light
And to the moon in kissing’s journey
Unto your lips with passion’s might.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

This work represents a welcome return to poetic verse and some lines of which I am extremely fond. The work is very much inspired by the purity of love and the romance of a kiss.

In this modern era of in your face 18 rated eroticism and sexually explicit imagery, it is easily forgotten that the romance of sensuality, and the blushing encounters of a stolen kiss, can be so alluring.

For me, romance rules – that’s not to say I am in any way inhibited toward the course avails of raunchy metaphor, but simply to underline my preference for the enchanting and the magical.

This is the hearts of Lions, separated by oceans, united by love and joined with a kiss. Requited, sensual and romantic – the tender lines give meaning to faith in true love.

Poem of the Day

poet Sir Thomas Wyatt

Farewell love and all thy laws forever;
Thy baited hooks shall tangle me no more.
Senec and Plato call me from thy lore
To perfect wealth, my wit for to endeavour.
