Written for:  Carpe Diem 1394 Some Kiss We Want  (Inspired by Rumi)

Some Kiss we want:

There is some kiss we want with
our whole lives, the touch of

spirit on the body. Seawater
begs the pearl to break its shell.

And the lily, how passionately
it needs some wild darling! At

night, I open the window and ask
the moon to come and press its

face against mine. Breathe into
me. Close the language- door and

open the love window. The moon
won’t use the door, only the window.

pearls

Seawater begs the pearl to break its shell

after the summer heat
raindrops are kissing my naked body
Ah! that coolness

© Chèvrefeuille (our host)

Here is my attempt:

love comes in
the window of moonlight–
loneliness walks out the door
