HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY ! ! !

HEAD DOODLING BACK

first kiss

the kiss came  
none too soon
under the stars and gypsy moon
   
waiting, in orchard breezes,
for the other to proceed:
a preemptive peck to signal 
they were set to do the deed

both wanting to appear sincere and not  
improper – or imply – 
that they were the kind person
to kiss any girl – or guy

murmurs amongst the quivers  
til, she heaved a breathy sigh

then fell

a bashful velvet kiss
upon
her cherry lip-balmed lips . . . 

like magic . . . floating by.

flitter-flutters  flitter-flutters
'neath the WHAMMO, WHAMMO SKY !!!
