“A blindside kiss
from out of the blue
a blindside kiss
a gift from you”

I never expected
to be crossing this line
I never expected
her lips on mine 

I never dreamed of
tongues, tangled and twisted
and I’m glad she didn’t ask
for I might have resisted

Crescent Moon

Surrounded by majestic mountains
Newly shrouded in night
Their silhouettes barely visible
Beneath a crescent moon

She slowly walked by
and made a racy comment,
while I thought
of some replies,
and then there was magic
that passed between our eyes,

Feather-Weight Kisses

by lindaluna583

You kiss me in the morning and some at night as well,
But the kisses that you give to me do no love story tell.

Saving My Kisses for You

by lindaluna583

On the day we met, a winter storm was brewing just outside
In my heart likewise a tempest brewed which I could scarcely hide
For though your lips were silent, you said tons with your eyes of blue
And I started to save my kisses in a bottle just for you.

4.1.1I dropped a pebble in a pond

and watched the ripples run

racing toward a distant shore

because of what I’d done




 I knew that soon they’d wash ashore

with a playful, warm embrace

Do not kiss me
do not steal my heart
if you don’t thirst
for my heart and soul
as much as you thirst
for my body

A Kiss With The Sky

A kiss with the sky
Above and below
Feet planted
On terra firma
A gentle wind caressing
My soft sun-kissed cheek.

Standing in a darkened hall

Hesitating, yet hearing your heart’s call.

At Last a kiss,

Oh what sweet release!

Will this euphoric feeling

Ever cease?

Separated by time and space

denied the warmth of Her gentle embrace

Her words they kiss me, though I know

I will never touch Her face

Memory Brushes Past

by braveandrecklessblog

Memory’s delicate tendrils

reach out

brush the nape

of my neck

cause an electric shiver

that courses

down my spine

knowing they’ll be touching you

deep in your heart, while we’re apart

Palimpsest Kiss

by S Francis

I find palimpsests under foot

Tried to cover them with sidewalk cement
They returned, nature pushing up through cracks

I get down on my knees to feel their texture

Sunrise embrace

by Jem Croucher


Along the western esplanade
out across the sea
A golden winter promise
reached out its arms to me
So I stood a little while
awestruck and swathed in grace
as it wrapped its arms around me
in a sunrise warm embrace

Synchronized Silences

by wordypenguin

Driving down the bay at night
Waiting for the evening tide
Sailing with you by my side
Sailing till the sun was bright

Flashes of my lifetime
Every time I’m in this place
You’re just a bliss away

I blushed

In rose-pink mischief

Beside the strawberry

And sugar-less dessert spelling

The First

by russtowne

She whispered, “I like you”
All the prompting I’d need
As we stood in the shade
Of a towering tree

Both new at this
Feeling kind of shy
Leaned toward each other
Quickly closed our eyes

That warm sunny day
Shared our first kiss
She only five years old
I was almost six.

–Russ Towne
