A Kiss

Of all raw passions, kiss alone
Seals lips but opens hearts
So short its distance
Be it of blood or two souls,

To reverence awareness,
Sweetest though unspoken
Understood by any tongue
Whose affection natural as sigh

Tastes like nothing on earth,
Links to states no man thinks,
Itself raises as a moment
In time's memory,

Love so sublime
Whose sound silent
Yet its echo lasts as truth-
A wish turned Godward.

    A kiss is a pronunciation of affinity. " Itself raises as a moment in time's memory" . Truly beautiful.

    I like the way you describe a kiss as an echo in silence. Feelings reverberate as a chasm is bridged. You have found the words, sweetly paradoxical, to evoke this moment of sanctified awareness.

    The raw passion, of course, reduces the distance between two souls, creates an immortal moment in memory and a sublime mark of love. Thank you dear poet....10

    Some deep thoughts on a simple thing like a kiss. Kissing is a superb feeling, I remember, French kissing too.
    I have almost forgotten what kissing was like now, but I will not forget your poem.

    (a kiss) Seals lips but opens hearts. Truly this line is striking. Indeed a kiss can mend a broken heart and find a lost soul
