Shaman - Horse

Poem - If Stars Could Kiss

The poem “If Stars Could Kiss” was based on the quote “if only stars could kiss us goodnight”. A bit of word play turned into a poem espousing the virtues of polyamory.


If Stars Could Kiss

If stars could kiss their supplicants
showing mercy in romance
the world would shine that much more
in response to heaven’s boon

so far below the sparkling gaze
kindred seek harmony
running from the blinding light
along the paths lit by sparks

no fierce sun should stand alone
orb to wield a virtue’s curse
such a ruler is too much
incinerating questing souls

smooches turned to destroy
when amour is singular
look to night’s dark canopy
where magnitudes come to play

the glow is far to much
when the source is just one
instead a sky must step forth
to transform night to perfect dusk

consider how this would be
high and low snuggling close
with rewards that defy
expectations of the heart.
