A Kiss Catcher Poem by Elena Sandu

A Kiss Catcher

Rating: 4.3

Lost kisses lost kisses
With the wind may fly
After finding him sleeping
On his shoulder you lie
Roll up on him tightly
But with greatest care
Gently delicate kindly
Shhh! Don't wake him
shh..don't let him be aware
Then, all kisses! Once:
kiss deep:
the soul, not the skin!
-Vacuum any sad cry!
Spick and span cleaned
The heart of a child
Once again let rise!
Then slowly and kind
Sweet heart of a child
Let's start filling back
With goodness revived
And Smiles.. In biig size!

Topic(s) of this poem: love
This poem was created in a strange state of pure love mixed with pain of death. Played first with my body as a creative concept of imaginary movement, a motion that a few days later wrote itself on a paper tissue. All happened before and after the big tsunami of Japan, that brought so much pain but also global waves of love and compassion. I guess this poem came with one of those waves..
Later, the kiss catcher was chosen to be played on stage as a choreographed dance, sprinkled with sign language, in an art project of Tane and also as a letter read on the stage for a few survivors of that deadly tsunami.
Am not sure why it got so much attention I suppose it may carry bits of the emotions of that particular time...
