“ Lasting Friendship ” ~ an august gift ~

If perchance

Time offers say,

A laudable way

To find amity,

One may discern

That special place,

Where so decides

Life’s real worth

Be best described

As friendship…

 

Of rare occasion

Be this a present

Of euphoria,

And far beyond

One of fortuity

Be the substance,

Of an august gift…

 

Thus bestowed

Upon my life,

Be kismet,

Two score or more

Of years ago,

The wondrous joy

Of lasting friendship

I’ve cherished so,

What serendipity alas

Would have me know!

                                                ode to my friend Pierre Ste.M

“ An Only Kiss ” ~ more than a wish ~

One’s likely dream

Be of an only kiss,

Might lead to more

Than but a wish

Of might’ve been,

Should one persist,

To acquiesce                                                                               

Would deem suggest,

Afar but a triste geste…

 

Wouldst not a kiss

Submit to so insist,

All in the spirit

Of impulse,

To later reminisce

Of its wondrous bliss,

Thus not deprive

A promise to survive,

More than an only kiss!
