Kiwi Kisses


Fingertips ...
skating pirouettes
in silence
of trails in blaze
across valleys
lost ...
between kiwi kisses
in passionate pouting sighs

Beckonings sold
in whispers chained silent
against the horizon rail
as the day
dips it's toes
into the bath of night
~blushing~
in the warmth of love
as it sets against the arms of two
lost in tranquil unity
in the front row
of nature's lullaby

Shared shoulder to cheek
in comfort's embrace
between spined arches
~traced~
in flights of gaze
and silent promises
cast to constellations of applause
upon these dunes of stage
where tomorrow's encore
shall find us
front rowed once more
in concert  
of kiwi kisses


Mark Christopher

hey gorgeous!

heh heh. 's

It's kinda hard NOT to love this, it has my lip-prints all over it--okay, okay, but that's not a "lame" excuse!

What an afterglow...


--and? I thought "kiwi kisses" kinda "cutesy"---until I read. It's okay. I've underestimated men before...chuckling...

AND? OVERESTIMATED.

HUGS YOU. EXCELLENCE, as always.

Once more, your pen looks good wearing romance and free verse.  You've got my sighs breathing sighs with this, of course, I'm keeping it, it's beautiful!

Take care,

Ahhhh fuzzy kisses....but so very sweet and exotic.
You're just doing an overwhelming job of poetic romanticism with your wonderful  choice of words in this free verse....
Your poetic imagery leaves one with warm fuzzies like kiwi .. I just wonder what the are like.
Your free verse could be addicting!   I will be eagerly watching for more, Mark

~blushing~
in the warmth of love
as it sets against the arms of two
lost in tranquil unity
in the front row
of nature's lullaby

and then to top it off with sweet kiwi kisses, what a perfect ending to a day.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
in the front row of
of nature's lullaby

that line alone is pure poetry in motion Mark.


Me thinks that Mr. Bohanon can write free verse about romance any day he wants to and listen to all of us sigh deeply with admiration........
sigh.....
oh yeah, back to the poem again....
very tender and romantic filled with
lovely images that even the moon would be
jealous of Mark.  Wonderful writing...

Enjoy life, this is NOT a dress rehearsal.

                  "as the day

My, oh my, oh my this is beautiful Mark. The visuals you painted in this piece were so  very vivid ... a soft, theatrical performance of words to start my morning ... what a delight!  Very lovely indeed, my friend.

Best wishes,

Kiwi is almost as delicious as this poem.

I love it!

Fingertips ...
skating pirouettes
in silence
===================
between kiwi kisses
in passionate pouting sighs

Beckonings sold
in whispers chained silent
against the horizon rail

as the day
dips it's toes
into the bath of night
~blushing~
=======================
lost in tranquil unity
in the front row
of nature's lullaby


Shared shoulder to cheek
in comfort's embrace
between spined arches
~traced~
in flights of gaze
and silent promises
cast to constellations of applause
upon these dunes of stage

==============================

Ya paint a lovely scene of serene here MC ..
just as in your last post...your free verse
delivers all the poetic passion and mastery that your rhymes do...the imagery, metaphor and personification are the centerpiece..ya even snuck in some alliterations and hints of rhyme, your line breaks and poetic phrasing are flawlessly seamed with those accented words to create the soft flow of this sensual, romantic write.
The beach inspires lovely things in your pen,


Beckonings sold
in whispers chained silent
against the horizon rail


How cool is that image and express.
Well done Poet MC ... but then I knew the "No Rules" -- rules of free verse would be a lesson you'd excell at
mothyme

If all the tear drops went to heaven
And if all the pain was confined ...
Would I be your salvation
could I make your spirit shine.

How refreshing..for something so delicate to be drawn out in long day turned to night and the anticipation for more...Is that not romance on the half shell that the birth of Venus herself would expect? Me thinks so...Yep..most certainly. Free verse delight.

serenity-That's okay .......I thought your lip prints on the monitor kinda cutesy too until I realized they were on the inside of the monitor.   Thanks angel.  I appreciate you.  

Madame Chipmunk-Thank you dearly.  I am glad you found it rich in it's images.

Honeybee-Sighs breathing sighs.....IS THAT SAFE?   Thank you much.  It is always nice to see your name here.

CSKpoet- If it left you with warm fuzzies then I am happy.  I didn't know kiwis could be addicting but at least they aren't fattening.  Thank you sincerely for your always wonderful visits.

Duncan-That's okay....I am allergic to kisses but the eyes were great!  Thanks CT man.  Have a GREAT WEEKEND!

Mistletoe Angel-Hey......did ya know that you just light up the forums just by being so giving.  Thanks kind sir for your very kind responses always.  I appreciate it.

Gentle Spirit-Would the day be ending or just beginning?  Glad you came back to the poem......thought you might have passed out!  I don't know about the moon being jealous but it is a nice compliment and I do thank you dearly for taking the time to point out your favorites lines.  You are appreciated much.

Kit-As soon as I see your name I always get a wider smile.  Thank you for you and I am glad you enjoyed the performance.

Sunshine-According to the "no rules" rule.....it is easy to write but that doesn't make the sneeze any more "purty" does it?  One more sneeze and then back to the security of rhyme.  Whew!!!!

Dark Stranger-Or something like that assuredly.  Thank you sir.  It is a pleasure to see you here.

Holly-Shhhhhhhhhhhh....you aren't suppose to hint about where the brussel sprouts come in.  Jeeeeezzzzz, those are for the moments more special than the special moments.  Thanks golden wings.  You know your word hugs always make me "Yeehaw".  

Enchantress-Conjure away and then write it so we can see it too.  Thanks much for always stopping by.

catalinamoon-yes, it should always be this way but unfortunately kiwis aren't seasonal all year round so we just have to wait sometimes.  Thank you dearly.

BloomingRose-Then I am elated that I decided to labor in the fruit basket.  Thank you much for your smiling support.

Marge-Yeah........I do believe I did and I am glad you let me know.  Thanks for you and the hugs.

Martie-Have a seat directly to my left if you promise to pen it after you watch the show.  Eclipses happen on Friday nights if you want the extended show.     Thanks sweet friend.  You know that you are treasured.

JM-Now I don't believe I SNUCK it in at all.  I checked it at the first dune and they passed me through.   Friends inspire me........the beach just give me the lighting effects.  Thanks sweetness for being there and not being there and then always tapping my shoulders to whisper..."I never left...only shadowing the shadows to soften them up a bit".  btw....don't lick the screen of kiwis......they look great but taste a little dusty........oops...."wiping monitor down"........never mind....go ahead, they taste much better now. LOL

Goodknight-Thank you for that and if it provoked powerful feelings then I hope you are able to capture some of them.

Magnus-OKAY ALREADY!!!!!!  NO more kiwi poems.  By the way, is your clone the descended version or the elapsed version.  I am shopping for mine now but haven't decided which features I like the best.  Thanks much, but no strikes okay.

ethome-I do believe I see you....you are the one singing in wider brights of white just over the third ring of Saturn.  Thanks my friend.  It is nice to see you.

CSKpoet-Seconds already?  Did the sign say "all you can eat"?  ~checking the ad~  Yeppers......it does........indulge.  Thanks for the return trip.
