Juicy Kisses

Written for:  dVerse Poets Pub – Quadrille #73 “A Prelude to a Kiss”  (Posted by De)
“I want you to blow some kisses into your poems today. A prelude to a kiss. A goodnight kiss on a baby’s cheek. K-I-S-S-I-N-G (first comes love, second comes poems…) Kiss someone’s arse. Kiss the Blarney Stone. Visit a kissing booth. Be sweet 16 again and never been kissed. Delight us with some chocolate kisses, or frighten us with a kiss of death. Whatever mood or form you choose, just be sure your poem gives that Q smackeroo: precisely 44 words, not including the title, and literally containing some form of the word “kiss.”


Bite into a large
dipped in dark chocolate.
Let it fill your mouth
with exquisite juices.
While that strawberry/chocolate
splendor remains, kiss
the one who has just
done the same. Unless
you are allergic to
strawberries (how sad).
Pick another juicy fruit.

    That sounds absolutely, positively, mouth-wateringly delicious Sara – but I’ll take mine with milk chocolate… Sweet poem! 🙂

  3. Ha! Love the self-indulgent humor — it certainly breaks the tension of those chocolate-dipped strawberries shared in such a manner. A “juicy fruit” rekindles the fire.

    Nice prelude to a kiss. I liked the lines: Unless “you are allergic to
    strawberries (how sad)”
