Under the moon

By Principe Guity Jr

PROMPT — What is Love?

Kissing under the

ascending moon

as it climbs

from behind

is the lover’s


It streams

in my mind, as

if I had

a river

of fantasies.

In my mind,

I yearn

for that day.

Like a sensual being,

lovely kisses

rattle my soul.

Goddess eyes

shine on me.


with a touch

of heaven.

She was a radiant rose

of my radio heart.

We were scattered

across the ocean of love

like a message in a bottle,

so we thought.

Once we got wind of each other,

We feel into love’s pool.

A Jack and Rose

type of love

that lives on forever.
