Sonnet Ii: First Kiss - Poem by Sandra Osborne

With an energy of love between our
Hands, fingers laced between the other.
That first touch of fire reveals the power
Starting to burst and starting to smother,
Tingling tightening, to squeeze off your air,
Blood rushes off to southern most parts,
Your scalp is alive with bumps in your hair,
Your face is reddened with a pounding heart,
Then he pulls you close and you feel the strength,
Of encircling arms around your waist,
Gently he presses, and kisses at length.
Then you look into his rugged soft face,
And smiling and giggling, at all this,
You try and savor your very first kiss.

    Still can't admit you didn't know what a cento was. I love your stubborness and arrogance even if you don't fess up to them. And your misspelling of the word 'talent' I think sums it up beautifully. Come to the big city down the river. I'll buy you lunch. (Report)Reply

    let's see. You confessed to being arogant and you called Centos' work 'contributions', admitting I guess that centos aren't real poems. Well, damn I agree. Now go stiff someone else. And if I am no poet why do you keep reading my poetry? ? BTW, poetry sure is easier when someone writes the lines for you. Try writing a Sonnet, even a bad one would count.

    Well, I'll treat you like all bad dogs and ignore you. Bad dog. Shame on you. So you have no tallent at all huh? ? Poor stuborn ol hound.

    The difference between me and you, dear Sandra, is that I clearly fess up to my arrogance. I'll also fess up to my ignorance of something, whereas you had no clue what a cento was and couldn't make heads or tails of Cento Poet's contributions. NOW you pretend you knew all along. That's hilarious! You crack me up! And you keep on flailing away with your whacky 'rule' that one must write poetry in order to legitimately critique it. I don't write any poetry except these comments, which I just may compile into a volume, 'Poetry Hound's Greatest Growls.' Maybe I can find some little backwoods publishing house that also publishes poetry that is so good it is ignored by (Report)Reply

    Hound.. Your arogance has again gotten the best of you. never take the lack of response as ignorance.

    A cento, patchwork or mosaic poem is mostly refered to as a Cento from the latin word meaning patchwork. It is called this because a Cento poem is made up entirely from phrases and lines from the works of other authors. Sort of plagerism poetry in a sense. Of course it makes sense that you would prefer this type of poem, not exactly original is it. You probably like Vanilla Ice and hate Billy Joel.

    Anyway, the difference between is is I could write a Cento, can you write a Sonnet? ? You write one and I'll include you in our little band of poets and you can comment and critique work at will. Put aside your arrogance ande pick up your pen. Just because you have different tastes doesn't mean nothing else has talent. If you WERE a poet you would know that.

    Do I know what a sonnet is? Interesting question coming from someone who clearly had no clue about what a cento was. (Report)Reply

    First, I never said don't leave comments. In fact I have thanked you for yours on many ocasions. Second, what I said was don't tell poets how to write when you don't. If you don't know how to drive a train, don't tell the conductor how. You can still complain about the ride. Also, you didn't even say if you hated this poem. Do you even know the structure of a Sonnet? ? I always welcome your comments, just not your arrogance. (Report)Reply

    Sandra, I wrote a poem just for you. Here it is. It's called:
    “I Don’t Want To Hear Any Comments Unless They’re Good And I
    Want A Wall Poster With A Rainbow, Fluffy Clouds and A Unicorn,
    Okay Mommy? ”

    One should never comment on movies unless one is a filmmaker
    One should never comment on government policies unless one is a government official
    One should never comment on poetry unless one is a poet
    Yes, it’s an idiotic view of life, but some people are idiots

    Regards, PH
