Blow Me a Kiss

And what is love?
Surely not the fleeting butterflies in summer.
It’s your everydaynessโ€•
That gets my fingers twirling absentmindedly
Tracing contours of a body on fire.
Blow me a kiss, then!
For I love your company.

Note: Sanaa at Imaginary Garden with Real Toads, asks us to write about love using a common everyday image. And I just love candles. I light them up at home as often as possible, even if just to watch them burn, whilst my mind drifts off towards a perfect world and where I can dream up stories with happy endings!

  1. Oooh this is absolutely stunning!!โค๏ธ Khaya ๐Ÿ˜€ welcome back! I love the idea of ‘everydayness’ symbolizing feelings of love! Such a deeply contemplative poem ๐Ÿ˜€ and oh those candles are just divine! (I too am enthusiastic when it comes to candles) Thank you so much for participating! It’s so good to have you with us!โค๏ธ

    Lots of love,

  2. If a kiss comes knocking on your door, let it in–it’s from me. I just couldn’t help myself, after your poem asked so beautifully.

    This is lovely!

  3. Beautiful, Khaya…powerful and slightly brazen ‘Blow me a kiss, then!’! I really like this. Yeah, another candle fan; I just love the light from them, so dreamy, the mind drifting with ease and creating a lovely cosy atmosphere. PS> I would like but for some reason the ‘likes’ are not loading on my computer. Consider it very much LIKED!! ?

  4. There’s somethinvg about atmosphere candles create; cosyness. I’m glad you enjoyed this piece, Annika. About the “like” button, I really have no idea what’s issue. I thought I fixed the problem, and it looks functional on my side. But thank you once again for taking time to leave a comment.??

  5. What can I say! I’m a romantic at heart.? Unfortunately, I’m still battling this terrible flu, it’s stubborn. Thanks for love and hugs, dear Stacy!

Do leave a trace!
