Kissing In The Moonlight

 They were tiny and squat, hooked at the hip, two figures you’d idly sketch on a notepad.

His face, buried in her neck, half concealed, while hers, tilted upward, shimmered like a big, round pearl.

Such a landscape it made, one Monet and Cezanne would have gladly dipped their brushes for…love in moonlight, beautifully bathed in blues and greens.

New York, so still, seems asleep as I try not to stare…slipping by, barely noticed, as they hold hands, legs entwined like roots of a sturdy tree.

I make my way home, the image locked, their raw, pure affection igniting a yearning in me, that alas, is not yet quelled.

Nice to know the love, you assume is gone, just lies dreamily dormant.

    Yes , I know the feeling…at least as a concept. Now I just need to meet a man with big boy pants a kind and fulfilled awareness and compassionate nature, who is not looking for either a ‘young thang’ or a bracelet!!!

    You certainly captured the moment, Susannah. The way truly romantic kissing can block out all surroundings and encapsulate you in a steamy hot bubble. You have a way with words.
