The Naked Kiss


The most eloquent silence, that of two souls blending to kiss
What passionate expression, exhilarating to Heaven’s clouds
Bridging gaps, melting barriers, and feeling totally complete
Exchanging spirit-breathe, how invigorating and intoxicating
We are all mortals until the time gives way to a tender kiss
Feeling the rush of emotions trigger such heat of regeneration
Words unspoken ‘now breathed alive’ into life’s great infilling
When two souls touch it heightens the senses so spectacularly
Since the invention of the kiss none is so fiery as True-love
One’s noted signature is fine, but a sacrificial gift outlast this
Hence, a kiss of the sun for pardon and the song of birds for mirth
For even the Lord God Almighty bestows a kiss for souls on earth
Avoid vain stories, with your love, and always live truth’s reality
Life’s best is sealed with a kiss, sealed with a kiss for validity

    I loved the last line in particular...
    'Life’s best is sealed with a kiss, sealed with a kiss for validity'
    Really nice!
    I'd love to hear what you think about my poem 'The Rolling Hillsides of my Tongue'...

    Peace and love,
