The ambrosia of the kiss and the touch

A Poem by Coyote Poetry
"May-day poetry nineteen”

                        The ambrosia of the kiss and the touch…


We had pretty places, ancient cities and the Swiss wines for us to drink. The Kind city of Basel, Switzerland  took us in and allowed us to slow down and enjoy the days and the nights. I told her. You are the prettiest thing I have ever saw. I love your face, I love your laughter and I love how you dance in the Spring rain in your bare feet and your beautiful song.


She smiled and she told me. I have watched you since you came to my city. You have given in without a fight. Surrendered your dreams and hope, made friends with the enemy. We are in Basel, nuestro  ground for us. No army, no rush to be anywhere and only us, to reveal true heart, real words and shed the skin of fear.


I told her.


“You are as beautiful as the morning sun, arising. You are more wonderful than watching the rising moon and the stars steal the day and become the night. I love your pale skin, your kind and gentle voice of a angel and how you hold me so tightly, in the coldness of the night. You make love. Holy and sweet. Your kiss is my ambrosia and your hands are my salvation. You and I. Falling stars seeking proper place for the hopeful in heart, can know peace.”


She smiled and she whispered into my willing ear.


” Love was luck and folly. The irony of love is we fall into her and forget to be kind to her. Few learn when they are young. Love kiss, love embrace and love near. A rare place for the few. We must make these days and nights last forever dear Johnnie. Forever is a terrible words. Can mean seconds or a thousand years.”


I brought her close and I did a silence prayer.

“Thank you for the city of Basel, thank you for the tasty and wonderful wines of Switzerland and thank you for her.
A blessing in a life with so few places to rest and know laughter.


Coyote

it is obvious to your readers that Basel had quite an impact on you John .. you speak of it/her often and your recollections of it/her are always crystal clear .. for me personally, reading you is like embarking upon a love affair .. tho familiar, it is also like finding and exploring a new and unexplored lover ... write on and always ..

Switzerland is a beautiful country. The air is the purest I have breathed anywhere. No wonder you remember that place with such fondness and the love you found there. Your description of your lover is romantic perfection. A wonderful read Coyote.

dear John... the warmth of Love when Snow covered Alps are within the view of dancing lovers subdued by Wine where peaceful places touch the ambrosia of a Kiss.

I have never traveled outside my humble setting of California, but reading your poem makes me wish I could visit Switzerland and discover the same beauty that captured your heart. Thank you for sharing this poem of love and the places it takes us to.
