The Kiss (poem)

Imagine streams

Of golden dreams

Much more there it seems

A promise that gleams


Imagine eyes

Rich with surprise

Much more than mere dreams

This land fraught with sighs


Add on a heart

Racing in streams

Through lands of surprise

Where love has its start


Finally kiss

Paradise gleams

Reality sighs

While love claims their heart


And so it seems

It had its start

A dream of a kiss

Deep within her eyes

Oh, this sonnet is gorgeous and makes me weep! The beauty of your words and images just astounds me. You are as good as Shakespeare here with this sonnet. I think it is one of the most beautiful sonnets I have ever read. Please put together a book of your sonnets.

Mhatter....I love your poems about love, "romance," and intimacy ... specially from a male perspective. You speak of the nuances, subtlety, surprise, excitation and delight of discovering another human being....a unique, individual and thoroughly personal, private and exhilerating experience. The magic of joy and celebration which you seem to understand in the shraring of oneself with another is very very pleasing...which makes the entire exchange pleasing, as well. wonderful! Up Awesome Beautiful Useful and Stirring.

Well, it would be good if I could count the lines and the rhymes in this poem. I called it a sonnet, which it is not, but at least a great lyrical poem. Nevertheless, the poem is beautiful and so full of emotion.

This has some passion to it and the video music really really hits the target. Johnny Depp and Angelina in The Tourist really made it for me! Great job on the poetic kiss.
