+ Fav Poet


As Christmas beckons with season of cheer
I recall how we met, a hallway outside
Right after a break from opera’s premiere;
Offering your neck- scarf, we gently smiled.
Flurries drifted while in haste I agreed,
Invite for tea as we watched the moon sink
'Till season’s next, nuptial  joy  pealed
A dawning ‘neath mistletoe... chain-linked.
Tonight, the lights consume your willow eyes       
Bestowing grace from Magi stars above
Flashback of theme songs yearns for  unity;
Enduring silver- year of timeless love.
Yuletide cloaks face of time;  you call my name
From springtime’s budding to December’s snow,     
Alone, I toast reveries etched on life’s acclaim
Kisses missed from my long gone mistletoe.

Rhonda J. Saunder's A Kiss Under The Mistletoe

    Goodness, the last stanza was so, so compelling.You always find the right mood to touch the heart with your classic words.Hauntingly deep withour being overemotional; my favorite line:"Tonight, the lights consume your willow eyes. Grand poem from a master.Soup mail!
