Shaman - Horse

Before the Storm

A dream about an expected kiss inspired me to write the poem “Before the Storm”. I can count on one hand how many kisses I’ve had like this. Their power cannot be underestimated.

Before the Storm

I didn’t expect the first kiss
ambush set full on the lips
with a tongue that filled the void
the sum result was heaven above

fireworks flash high in the sky
only seen by those involved
pyrotechnics invite much more
opening volley in lust’s salvo

a simple touch was enough
caress of flesh so very soft
brush of lips has provoked
the unexpected now welcome

this modest act rocked my world
shifted ground once set firm
tremors felt deep in my soul
this convulsion before the storm.
