A Kiss Of Sunshine

The equinox in autumn evens out the nights and days and makes them equal length. I lie outside because I am devout, but you, dear Sun, eventually lose strength. I dream in winter of each afternoon we meet in summer. . . passion at its peak, and I can play as if I'm a cocoon wrapped in your heat till night time makes you weak. Oh, Sun, I need again for you to surge for hours on end, so I can take you in and at the close of day, I can emerge your monarch, tinged with scarlet for our sin. Spring comes, and with it comes the moment when a kiss of sunshine I will feel again! Written by Andrea Dietrich/ 3/7/13 For "A Kiss of Sunshine" Poetry Contest 1 original, poem on the theme of .A Kiss Of Sunshine............ Any form is acceptable. Now for the "Take Two" Poetry Contest of nette onclaud

    this is a very good one from you, andrea, I think this passionate personification of the sun is really clever; I especially like that line "your monarch, tinged with scarlet for our sin"...I'm seeing so many great poems on this list, it's difficult to comprehend why they didn't place in the original contests! anyway, congrats to you! :)

    Dear Andrea, YOU fooled me I was going to read "Crackers for Carrots" Then I saw "A Kiss of Sunshine" and Thought it was for the contest "A Soup member worthy of a Tribute" by Richard Lamoureux. I thought it was for Carol "Sunshine" Brown. Congrats on another Winning Circle stand in. I LOVE YOU ALWAYS and FOREVER YOUR Eternal Liege,,,Harry

    I guess I didn't need an excuse to read this wonderful poem, but Jack Ellison is the Jack of my clerihew Jacks lol. I didn't notice that there were the exact poems with different names in the top hundred. I just happened to read some and they were a few lines and they weren't great Haikus, the weren't haikus or at, nor the other lol. This is a very wonderful poem in opposition to my theme soul of the night lol. Great Work.

    Loved how you weave romance with such beauty and subtlety in your Sonnet. One of the very best entries Andrea. Good luck.

    "[...] I can emerge/ your monarch, tinged with scarlet for our sin." Am I the only one who "see" erotism here? : ) Again: you're goooood! : ) Great write, Andrea! Ruben.

    A hymn to the sun. A famous Russian composer, Rimsky Korsakow wrote a hymn to the sun. Your incredibly wonderful poem reminds me so much of that darkly-sunny piece. Love, daver
