A Poem by jacob erin-cilberto

edict  ( a cinquain)  


awkward
my lips are sealed
yours touch mine with yearning
implications of love decreed
i yield

An excellent cinquain ... I especially like the play between the first and last line awkward / I yield. Much happening in just a few lines. ~Jim

A tryst
to contemplate,
to enjoy and imbibe
as closeness becomes deep yearning
for love!

Nice one Jacob.

Not exactly an anomalous reaction.
A sin-quain prettily said.

Ah, a kiss can open the most complicated lock. Awkwardness seems to fly far away when yearning is around. Wonderful cinquain. Lydi**

let me explain. being in love is being naïve. you look the other way. parse your lips for kissing even when you haven't brushed your teeth. you left you ego at the door. un-makeup faces can show age spots. people dye their hair. you miss people. you share. you give in to it all/ dana

the sheer power of Love, the primal incomparable power, beautifully, passionately, yearningly and strongly written in these few lines. amazing read.

Good to see you having a go at one of these Jacob. Lorry's on a roll with them at the moment. I love this, brings me pictures of such awkwardness. Not quite expecting or ready, but hey give it a try anyway. Hope the experience yielded much fruit.
