A Monk surprised

A monk is kissed by a woman

Can you remember?
Can you feel?
remember her lips
The gentle cusp of her cheek
Her pretty eyes
God be thanked for the vision of women
are you happy?
feel contented?
are you flattered?
But all she did was to kiss you
And she a stranger out of the blue

Was there a message?
A point?
A call for help perhaps
Was she a person of the night?
Sent to tempt you into sin
Oh Brother be steadfast
And stay content
You are God’s anointed 
Sworn to service only him
