To Find A Kiss Of Yours

Spread the love

Poem inspired by the title of Federico García Lorca’s poetic masterpiece “To find a kiss of yours.”

To find a kiss of yours on the stage of twilight
when light slowly ebbs below the horizon,
leaving behind
a silver of dark orange and dusty lavender
what I wouldn’t give
to trace my finger on your lips,
extract an emotion or two from its bridge.

With you
I taste the saltiness of ocean,

as breath is interlaced with the serenity of sky,
I allow its appeal to flood the senses.

To gaze upon your brow
would be to witness the whirl of coruscating stars,
how is it that God has made you
so as to lead me upon the path to allegiance,
I find I am partial
to your visage and in turn have betrayed the moon.

And to immortalize you in verse,
what I wouldn’t give to compare with stimulation
by strawberries,

to find a kiss of yours in the mist of early dawn
for purposes such I await the day.

    I loved “With you / I taste the saltiness of ocean” It gives the sense of something vast and yet there could be a hint of tears there as well. I really enjoyed reading.

    As I get older, I don’t seem to kiss as much as I used to, which is probably why I love this poem – it reminds me of those kisses of the past – kisses on the stage of twilight! I especially love the colours in this poem and the lines:
    ‘To gaze upon your brow
    would be to witness the whirl of coruscating stars’
    and
    ‘to find a kiss of yours in the mist of early dawn’.

    Love this whole write especially this part: “…With you
    I taste the saltiness of ocean,
    as breath is interlaced with the serenity of sky…” Your poems always read as a welcome sigh, Sanaa!
