First Kiss

Fingertips whisper down arms

Lips, silk, against cheeks

Shadows candlelit

Slowly, Slowly, Slowly

Languid stretch, reaching

Muscle firm, arms warm

Life sighs, transcendental

Slowly, Slowly, Slowly

Cherry blossoms drift down

on feathers of wind

We are one

Flames dance

Currents flow

We are one

Do you know the song " This Kiss" if I could sing it which I can't My mom use to say I could carry a tune in a bucket with a handle on it, and she was right, that's why I became a DJ, that's the song I might sing

"This was lovely. If its o.k. with you I'm going to replace my first kiss memories, which was like kissing a dead fish, with yours!"

I second this thought. Fantastic blend of words to express a moment. Mine was a long time ago, but I still remember it as if it were yesterday. Unfortantely we were very young, and it was mearly a promise of something that would come much later...as in years later, and not with the same girl. What an adventure....youth. If only we had the chance to do it over and again.
