Afterglow Of The Kiss

LXXXVI.


From a first timid kiss when we're kids till the last one when we're mature, - all through life, what speaks of love and desire better than kissing? From caring to passion, a kiss expresses it. What is more memorable? It gives me goose bumps just to think of it, and again experience the feel of it.


Meander with me through special moments. Let your thoughts embrace your own sweet moments.


Indulge. Be in the moments.


I wanted to write you

A poem tonight,

At the end

Of this glorious day.


I wanted to light up

Your life tonight,

And to dare

All the words can say.


I wanted to thrill

To your touch and your voice,

As I wanted to fill up

With you.


As I think of this day

I tremble with love

And the things

You have taught me to do.


I ached! How I yearned

To be near you this night;

And I wanted - oh, wanted

This moment to share.


And now do I have it? - I have it,

Your cherished love

In our special garden;

In that moment, - rare.


______© Nellieanna H. Hay


Wherever you touch me

I come alive.

So touch me

Everywhere.


______© Nellieanna H. Hay



When someone

Touches you

And reaches where

You haven't been,

You'll never be the same again

No matter what you do.

It lives beyond its shelf.

And now ~

The sun dares,

The moon beseeches,

The earth commands

The very soul of me.

The pitter-patter of this heart

Forever then demands

Itself

To be.

______© Nellieanna H. Hay



So this is it, -

Not an old love,

Not a new love,

Not an "in love"

But a true love -

As I have always

Known to be.


______© Nellieanna H. Hay


kiss me once & kiss me twice ~

A Secret Garden


Where air is rare.

Too bare to breathe,

Too sweet, its ends.


Where pulse

Is almost standstill,

Our secret dream unfolds,

Our special place portends

Its pleasures.


Its air refines,

Defines and holds

Its secret sense,

The way of magic -

Transporting me to you.


______© Nellieanna H. Hay


Give me

All of you

And I will be

Content.

Show me

All you do,

And I'll know

What you meant.


______© Nellieanna H. Hay





I've never been here before

Where the sky and earth

Open up completely,

Meeting you

Totally.-

______© Nellieanna H. Hay










I'll make you a garden of stars,

Said she to her love,

And shuttle you

Here and there to each place.

You may visit the galaxies

Where the brightest lights play

And trail among a comet's display

On its passionate flight

Through space.


______© Nellieanna H. Hay





There feels to be

No boundary,

No distance and no time

'Tween me and thee.

When love so sweet,

So bright and glowing

Cushions day

And makes it light.

When passion's stream

So warmly flowing

Pours itself

Upon the night.


______© Nellieanna H. Hay



I've kissed the night,

I've kissed the day

And felt your presence there.

I cannot say

Which I love more,

So long as you are near,

Our lips expressing

Deep delight.


______© Nellieanna H. Hay



My heart flows

To wherever you are

And seeks your eyes,

Your silent eyes,

Shouting messages as clear

As when you're near

With lips beseeching mine

To kiss.

I want to want you not

But I still do,

Knowing the luxury of those lips

On mine.


And more - much more.


______© Nellieanna H. Hay


you must remember this ~ a kiss is just a kiss ~ a sigh, a sigh

"As Time Goes By"

music and words by Herman Hupfeld

You must remember this
A kiss is just a kiss,

A sigh is just a sigh.

The fundamental things apply
As time goes by.

And when two lovers woo
They still say, "I love you."
On that you can rely
No matter what the future brings
As time goes by.

Moonlight and love songs
Never out of date.
Hearts full of passion
Jealousy and hate.
Woman needs man
And man must have his mate
That no one can deny.

It's still the same old story
A fight for love and glory
A case of do or die.
The world will always welcome lovers
As time goes by.

Oh yes, the world will always welcome lovers
As time goes by.

AMAZING. Nellie, your poetry never leaves me without emotional response. You have a TOTALLY unique ability and gift. You dig SO deep into the most basic concepts known to man, and express them in the most perfect ways. I honestly try my best to express my own feelings in a way that could compare to yours. You inspire me, truly.

*Hugs*

Nellieanna, so strange - I always come running to you when I feel down in the dumps, and to my surprise I always find exactly what I need to hear to get out of my damned dark and dusty dumps. These poems are so beautiful - pure, bare love. During our life on earth we get more than one opportunity to experience this afterglow of the kiss and what follows until the painful end of it. Eventually one - perhaps only me - develops a fear for love, knowing:

"I want to want you not

But I still do."

I wish you a lovely Friday. Mine is now here to tackle with all I've got. (6:20am)

Nellieanna 5 years ago from TEXAS Author

Martie - that's so sweet. I surely don't want you to be down in the dumps, or as George called those, "in a blue funk". If I helped you to get out of it, that is truly gratifying.

We need to live in the now, and not torture ourselves anticipating when this one ends so another can begin - until it's the now. Life IS change - otherwise - it would be static, - and that is not life.

Someone once told me she had learned to welcome even pain because it proved she was alive. It's so. Even wanting someone when you wish you didn't is - ALIVE. There is more good in it than negative. Be afraid of not feeling your real feelings. I can imagine nothing worse than being unable to feel, even regret. And it will change. That's the nature of life.

Wow - you are a busy lady - and already into Friday I'm just about to toddle off to bed. It's 11:20 PM Thursday here and 40 degrees Fahrenheit. hehe. The weather is up and down the thermometer and from clear to stormy from one moment to the next.

Nellieanna, I do all my kissing vicariously. I have been searching through the memories I can evoke, and honestly I think I have only kissed seven people in my life, so that sort of says a lot about me.

And this hub says a lot about you, and what it says, is “The lady has absolutely the most beautiful mind to be able to bring this amazing hub together so perfectly.”

I love your choices of videos, they are perfect. The Diana Krall ‘Besame Mucho’ is exquisite in its construction and her voice; astounding. I thought I was listening to Astrud Gilberto at one stage, it was so evocative… pictures and all.

There are kisses that remain with me always, apart from my limited few, and I must say, in my guise as onlooker, vicarious kisser, they must be the kiss when George (Julian Sands) kisses Lucy (Helena Bonham Carter) in the field in ‘A Room With a View’, and when Holly Golightly (Audrey Hepburn) kisses Paul Varjak (George Peppard) in the final scene of ‘Breakfast at Tiffany’s’.

But to add the cherry to the top of this confection, I have to say…

No, I have to shout to all who would listen, “This poem of yours is one of the most beautiful poems I have read for a very, very long time. It is stunningly beautiful”.

“There feels to be

No boundary,

No distance and no time

'Tween me and thee.

When love so sweet,

So bright and glowing

Cushions day

And makes it light.

When passion's stream

So warmly flowing

Pours itself

Upon the night.”

Brava! My friend, I bow to you. I am in awe of your talent.

Nellieanna profile image

Nellieanna 5 years ago from TEXAS Author

Well, Ian, my goodness. You need more kisses, real-life! You may be deluged with offers! I can't agree more though, with those particular vicarious ones you mention as being truly the best, especially George and Lucy - - or, er, Holly and Paul -- or - - yes, they exemplify the spirit of the abandonment of a really good kiss. I'm not sure which is better, that or the actual feel of kissable lips. . . Both. Yes, both.

And Diana Krall has kisses in her voice, I think. She can be such a jazz singer and musician, but her Latin sound and that intimacy she puts into it - geewillikers! Yes, I hear that similarity to Astrud Gilberto's singing, tempo and sense of really BEING in the music she's singing. I hadn't known that artist before - but now I have a new favorite, and the three of her songs I listened to are exquisite. "It Might As Well Be Spring" is such a surprise, too, for her style. Lovely. You've never steered me wrong! Thank you.

I was playing "It's Been A Long Long Time" on the keyboard recently and it fit my theme so well that I was delighted to find Tony Tenille's feeling rendition of it. That song was popular when I was a young teen, buying the sheet music and learning the words, hearing it on "Your Hit Parade". Of course, all the music on this hub was current then. . .

Thank you for that lovely compliment to my poem you mentioned, too! :-)

Another parallel! My first knowledge of Astrud Gilberto's voice/music was 'It Might As Well Be Spring',

You and I, Nellie!!!

I also love Nina Simone's version and that by Blossom Dearie (in French). They are both amazing, one dark and moody in parts and the other deliciously light and charming.

Nellieanna profile image

Nellieanna 5 years ago from TEXAS Author

Ah! It's yet another example and I'm flattered, since your erudite taste is astonishing, Ian.

Also "It Might As Well Be Spring" was also one of George's favorite songs. He loved to play it on his beautiful harmonic, which he played with tenderness. And he'd have loved Astrud's rendition, because he also loved Latin beats and that sm-o-o-th styling!

Thank you for introducing me to Nina Simone, too - awhile back. I am probably going to use a song by each of these outstanding artists on the hub on which I'm working, though not that song.

The one of Nina's is so dark, I almost hesitate, but she is an independent lady who resists the lyrics' abject darkness, even though she sings them like nobody else; you know what I mean. But then she changes the ending with her own intensely dramatic interpretation, which happens to illustrate my premise in the hub rather nicely.

Nellieanna profile image

Nellieanna 5 years ago from TEXAS Author

Ian - I hate to tell you, but "Ne Me Quitte pas" is already among the songs on the hub I'm making, although I hadn't use Nina's. One Nina on a hub is probably overwhelming enough, especially the one I'm probably going to use. It is gigantic. Also, it's important (I think) that the words be in the English version, due to how it's being used in the hub. I considered using Jacques Brel's with English subtitles or Rod McKuen's (he's the lyrics' translator and where I first knew the song). I may still reconsider which version to use among several contenders, but the one already there is rather lovely, I think.

The song is among my long-term favorites, by the way and always breaks my heart, reasons I'm using it on the hub. - I play it, too. It's been featured on my personal website since years (not my musical rendition, though!) on which I talk about it and show both French and English lyrics. It's one of my early webpages there which attracted a visitor who'd found the reference on Google when Google was almost as green as I was and u-tube was uninvented. :-)

Anyway - I know Nina's and if you plan to use hers on a music hub, I'll happily honor that - - - -and look forward to seeing/hearing it with your special ambience presenting it.

2uesday -- I'm pleased that you appreciated it. I'm afraid it's part of my M.O. to 'pretty things up' -- even things not normally calling for added adornment.

Twilight Lawns profile image

Twilight Lawns 5 years ago from Norbury-sur-Mer, Surrey, England. U.K.

Nellieanna, I have chosen the songs, and that is as far as I can go right now. Strangely enough (or perhaps, not so strangely) the music and lyrics seem to say everything I want to say, and I feel that my ramblings may be superfluous.

Talking about rambling, I have just finished a rambling about me in the 'Ian in India (and beyond)' series, but it is already about 3,360 words long, and I wonder if I should cut it in half and publish a "Chapter 1" and a "Chapter 2".

Hmmm!

But use Nina or whoever. I am sure that our styles won't overlap, although our lives seem to enjoy taking parallel courses.

Ha ha!


Nellieanna profile image

Nellieanna 5 years ago from TEXAS Author

This next hub I'm doing allows the music to speak much of its message, but of course, this is a place where we speak for ourselves mostly - and I do. It's so delicious to be able to employ the music, though. But our ramblings can never be superfluous! Tell me it's not so! :-)

I tend to be verbose and one of my beloved early hubmentors was kind enough to suggest that I divide up the really long treatises I'm prone to write. I admit to having an aversion to distancing related thoughts, but I have monitored my lengths and word counts more since then. I've trained myself to get an odd feeling if the count goes over certain 'max' limits I try to impose on myself.

I'm using the Nina piece I'd already chosen for the spot in the hub-in-process. But you're right - the applications and styles we'd use even if we used the same pieces wouldn't conflict, in each of our contexts. And even if they did, we'd have to presume a lot more attention and comparison than most readers would afford them!! haha. We'd be the only ones to notice, probably!! Thank you for giving permission to use them as I see fit though!!

By the way, I see through your tactic of increasing my traffic by enjoying some of the chats we'd otherwise have via email. Clever and very kind! Hugs.

It's not a tactic, Nellie. Take it like this:

If I were to pass you on the stair and smile and nod and say, "See you soon!", would you like it as much as if I passed you on the stair, and reached out and touched you on the arm and said, "You look lovely today, What's that smile all about?", and perhaps we stood together and chatted, and then moved on.?

You know Nellieanna, some could read this and say, Heck she must be in a blue funk or blue haze or full of melancholy and remembrance of the past. Yet I read these poems with joy, knowing that you actually lived what you write here. You, like many of us had our ups and downs in life, yet all of these made us stronger and better for the most loving human beings. I love your attitude about life with these words I quote you

"We need to live in the now, and not torture ourselves anticipating when this one ends so another can begin - until it's the now. Life IS change - otherwise - it would be static, - and that is not life."

I live in the now and the past is drawn out in my poetry, yet I don't practice the past or live in it. I to live in the now and when I pass over I will be living in that NOW wow, wow, wow as Steve Jobs said on his last dying breath.

I know your George awaits you in good time, but till then your heart and soul remains here with us and my god you are a true blessing of LOVE...thank you my friend for these beautiful pieces of wisdom. Feel my warm kiss upon your cheek with affection and hugs to match...


Nellieanna profile image

Nellieanna 5 years ago from TEXAS Author

Ian - I'd like you any way I could have you, but of course, I would prefer the more personal and friendly greeting of those two, = the latter one!

I was quite insensitive to refer to your lovely gesture as a tactic! I've no passable excuse, but that it was late at night and my mind must have been half numb. It wasn't a criticism of your manner of greeting me, though, I hope you know. No criticism at all, in fact, but a feeble attempt to be witty and sly by arranging some intended praise around the fact that you might be giving welcome attention on my comments after I'd mentioned that activity on my hubs had slackened off, no doubt due to my not having posted a new hub in several weeks.

Weak is what it was, not witty; but my heart was in the right place! Thank you for your return to clarify, and especially to offer such a delightful alternative greeting choice. Wrap 'em up! Hugs!


Nellieanna profile image

Nellieanna 5 years ago from TEXAS Author

Ken - exactly! I almost added more of that explanation to the hub - it's not a gloomy peek into the past, but a joyous pondering of the good parts and appreciation for having survived not so good ones and with my spirit intact and possibly improved from the experience. Being able to immerse myself in and be involved in the now helped me even then in rough times. And the poetry writing helped in that repect. I could IMMEDIATELY go and write down just how I felt and thought right at that precise moment - and also always had creative activities going on too. I might say that I became my own best friend when contacts were being blocked.

I agree that 'passing over' will be an immediate and real-in-the-now experience, too. I've always thought that to 'go to heaven', one must take it with her/him. I know little about any other aspects of it, but I am pretty confident that if one has been blind to the goodness of life here on earth, that's going to be the problem 'over there' too. If we ignore and take for granted all the much we're given to enjoy and build upon for the years we are on earth and the opportunities to brigten others', why expect a change in the inner awareness (spirit) all of a sudden?

Thank you so must for those lovely comments. And the kiss and hug, too!

Twilight Lawns 5 years ago from Norbury-sur-Mer, Surrey, England. U.K.

Nellie, it gave me a chance to write some well meant and affectionate words. When I was writing it, I became very much a part of the intimate little scene, and although I would remove words such as "See you soon", I can see that there is the basis of a really lovely little poem there.

Do you agree, My Dear?

I'm going to put it on the back boiler.

And having talked about the back boiler, I have just looked into a fairly large cooking pot that has been simmering there for many months. It has about 3,800 words in there, ready to be served out, but I don’t know whether to serve it all as a huge meal for all the family, or whether to have it over a couple of days.

It looks nice, it tastes nice, and there is something of a British Indian and a South American flavour to it... I can almost taste the beef and hear the gaucho's spurs, but I don't know what to call it.

The ingredients are varied, but I seem to remember it tasted wonderful to a young boy, growing up in India.

Nellieanna profile image

Nellieanna 5 years ago from TEXAS Author

Ian - Yes - I agree wholeheartedly! it would be a delightful poem. Even "see you soon" might work, depending on the level of intimacy. . .

I'm starving to taste the back boiler odyssey of your young life in India. I don't know exactly what I'd prefer - all in one publication or divided up.

If, by chance, you might consider it for the Hub Patrons contest, the advice they give is to keep it together in one publication, because each separate publication is considered a separate entry. I admit that, while I've divided up some of my stories, I sort of feel jarred when I see that I must (possibly) wait for the rest of one and bring up a different page, unless suspense is vital to the effect of the work. Others would balk at 3800 in one fell swoop but . . .

You need to just go ahead and publish and decide how you want it. Your gut feelings must dictate it. That's my take on it.

I hadn't considered the HubPages contest... Hmmm! Interesting. I'll have to have a look and see what the criteria are.

It is a ramble, but you know I can ramble with the best of them.

Whizzing off to look at the rules...

I also might consult with the Oracle; there's one I know and respect in Texas.

Ha ha ha! (Too many "Ha"s?)


Nellieanna profile image

Nellieanna 5 years ago from TEXAS Author

Good! If I know you and your writing, it is well worth considering entering! If an Oracle is needed, you should consult him/her. :-) I'm feeling a large connection with the Oracle in "The Matrix" movies. My younger stepson who recommended "Signs" also recommended it but held off pushing it much, due to my august age. I can't wait to tell him I loved it. It has deeper meaning than just fancy martial arts, flashing weapons and melting biology (and Keanu's angelic face).

So when it came on one of the classic channels yesterday- (several of the sequels, too) I became entranced, watching and typing simultaneously nearly all day. I had my U-Verse system record it all too. I'd resisted it big-time when it came out, having heard and seen a lot of violent action. But I love Keanu Reeves and he's sooooo convincing as "The One" who will save the humans from the machine invaders and this lady who plays the Oracle is just great. So real and wise. Anyway - about your 'ramble' - I sense it already, as enchanting reading.

There can never be too many "Ha"s to express deep-diaphragm big raucous enjoyment. hahahaha!! :-) I know you're more sedate than that sounds but bet you have some big hahaha moments frequently, anyway.

Dear Nellieanna...surprise! Here on Dec. 7, I thought I would sneak in and comment on your hubs. This was fabulous. Voted up and all the way because it was just all of that. A collector's item. And I didnt know if I had properly thanked you for following me, so take this as a Sincere Thank YOU for following me and for being a good friend. My health is not good and I am trying to comment on ALL of my followers' hubs in case my health worsens. YOU are ALL valuable to me. And YOU are Much-Appreciated, Nellie. And I will hope that my Alexis writes things like this. Touching. Sensitive and Charming. Please have a safe night and a Merry Christmas, my dear Nellie. Your friend and pupil, Kenneth

Dear Kenneth - It is a lovely surprise! You realize it was Dec. 7th - that day 70 years ago of Pearl Harbor. I always remember, too.

I'm glad you 'snuck' in and liked my hub. It's my privilege to follow you, Kenneth - a man with a heart bigger than an ocean! I know your health is not good and I can only wish I had the power to change that or to share some of my good health with you. I pray that yours does not worsen, but it is typically thoughtful of you to write your followers a lovely note 'in case' it does. Let's just refuse to let it!

Your lovely Alexis has a lot to live up to, having you as a shining example. She will have her own style and make her own impact, though. I look forward to seeing it.

Merry Christmas to you, dear friend.

Dearest Nellieanna,

Thank YOU so very much, not only for these words, but all you have said to me for the past seven months. I am so blessed to have YOU and all of my followers. Its like God hand-picked each one of you with colorful ideas, ways to write, and present each idea with their own style. It had to be God at work. And I thank you for the sweet compliment of Alexis, who WILL have her own style and impact as I have already read some of her essay work in her class and she will write it, then rewrite it several times, get me to listen to it, rewrite it and by now, I would have passed out from exhaustion, but Alexis sticks with it until SHE is satisfied. And I will start letting her sit down and write her own hub one day and I promise. YOU will know its her. Merry Christmas to you and yours. Kenneth
