Kiss In The Wind - Poem by Juan Olivarez

Blowing in the wind,
I once caught a kiss.
To me it was sent,
So I couldn't miss.

I reached way up high,
And held it close to my heart.
Before it could fly,
Through the air like a dart.

I brought it to my lips,
And your essence I breathed.
Held on my fingertips,
As my soul fairly seethed.

I locked it away,
Inside of my breast.
And there it will stay,
Till they lay me to rest.

    So poignant with brevity, economy of words-the imagery grabs me
    a 10-Joe
