The Last Kiss
The sun tarries and winks
just for the last kiss
purple beauty bows to breathe the orange glow
love blooms with the promise
of meeting each spring
days of love get warmer,
beams of love sharper
but basking in the glory, she stands sturdy
as the petals wither.
love is just like that!
halcyon moments halt
seasons don’t matter
eons of love stories spill out of his den
as he chases the wind
and entices the rain.

This week’s challenge is a photo prompt. Thanks to Colleen and Terri for the inspiration to write syllabic poetry. I’ve written a Double Ennead for the first time. A Double Ennead is a 99 syllable form, comprising three stanzas of syllables (6, 5, 11, 6, 5).
