Rachel Nichols


A Kiss


Two worlds collide
Lips touch lips
Heat dissipates the chill
Stars appear
Sparks fly
The earth disappears
Time stands still

    Oh, how wonderfully you have described a kiss! Short, but simply superb!
    Your every line describes the feelings and passion so truthfully!
    The last two lines are truly hypnotic. (Report) Reply

    You the popular most from States, you once again reminded me of Shakespeare. The greatest joy-To kiss a miss, the greatest sorrow-To miss a kiss. such a poem in only seven lines! (Report) Reply

    A wonderful poem about a wonderful human custom! I remember the comic strip BLOOM COUNTY, the one with the delightful Penguin Opus, had a chorus of animals who could not comprehend humans kissing. They called it LIP MASHING! Poor fools, they didn't know what they were missing - as you show in your poem - Emotional Fireworks! I recently wrote a Love Poem with a central kiss. It goes: GRADUALLY OUR LIPS PARTED REVEALING TWO SMILES... AND IT WAS AS IF MOONLIGHT POURED INTO THE CAR AND COVERED US IN ITS PERFECT GLOW. More Emotional Fireworks! (Report) Reply

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

Young Love lies sleeping
In May-time of the year,
Among the lilies,
Lapped in the tender light:
White lambs come grazing,
White doves come building there:
