A Kiss Poem by Shamik Kumar Bose

A Kiss

Rating: 4.4

In Quietude on the waterfront, I hear the kissing sound of water
on the lovely pebbles
That sound reminds me of a deep love once made in heaven
and now on my earth, under a mellow'd beam
of the full Moon
That kiss turns into a flute of a sumptuous melody
A music soft, sweet, mystic, ethereal

My eyelids heavy under the burden of a mountain's weight
lighten up with a spark of fusion
When a joyful beam plays with the pebbles and the water
That sound touches me deep inside my heart
With a love never felt, never seen

I noticed that you've put in a typo in the word quietude, you spelt it quietitude but other than that the poem reads well. Ruthie: o)
