First Kiss

I never saw, before this day, the green
That hides within the azure of your eyes;
If ever I had dared, I might have seen
These things I've just begun to realize ...

If ever I had thought to brush your cheek
So gently thus, with feather fingertips,
Perhaps I'd not have paused so long to seek
The singular attention of your lips ...

Nor waited to enjoy the dance of tongues
That washes warm desire upon my skin;
Nor missed the ecstacy of eager lungs
That savor every time I breathe you in ...

Nor would I only now perceive the thrill
That speeds the rhythm sounding in my breast;
The rush that marks the melting of my will
Would not be new, if only I'd confessed

That countless times, on many sleepless nights,
I'd watch these scenes unfold before my eyes;
Dismissing them as fanciful delights
To realms of wistful smiles and dreamy sighs ...

But this embrace has left me so beset,
With every moment, every breath sublime;
That I can muster nothing of regret,
Nor whisper of lament for misspent time.




 Full fathom five thy father lies,
Of his bones are coral made,
Those are pearls that were his eyes;
Nothing of him that doth fade
But doth suffer a sea-change
Into something rich and strange...


--William Shakespeare, from The Tempest

A heavy sigh springs from my lips,
a happy smile creases my face.
No smart remarks or caustic quips,
just a bow at your charm and grace.

Beautiful and all but heavenly Kess. What more is there to say! (Other than I love the presentation! )

I feel that you reached deep within
to pull this beauty out.
I'm absolutely in awe of your talent.
Great, Kess.

There are those who have spent their entire lives searching for that which has always
been by their side
you have the touch of a master

Christopher:  What, no witty retort?  (checking forehead) -- you sick, m'friend?      Thank you, and LOL @ presentation ...

Marge, considering what I have to deal with in the mirror every morning, I would have to say I reached VERY deep inside -- LOL.      Thank you for your lovely compliment -- I do not deserve it, but will take it anyway, rogue that I am!    

Rex!  You snuck in there whilst I wasn't looking!     What you say about searching is true, though I'm not sure about the "master" bit!  Sheesh, I'm gonna gain a few hat sizes with praise like that!

Dismissing them as fanciful delights
To realms of wistful smiles and dreamy sighs ...


Jenny sighing herself  

Lilting with a haunting melody
