One Summer Carnival Night

Tilt-a-Whirl pinned us together. Then on the Octopus, the breeze we were twirling through could not cool us down Reaching the top of our last ride on the bright Ferris wheel, I shivered from love’s fever . . . waiting for his kiss. For Sotto Poet's 'Give Me A Shadorma ' Poetry Contest 2 stanzas checked by Howmanysyllables.com, 26 syllables each

Please, if you are going to get technical, at least spell the words right. "coherent" "incoherent" LOL, Light & Love. Moses

Those young days, sigh, when we were all a bit mad, impulsive and romance was like steroids. Love this one, Andrea. I think you made EVERYONE smile with this, anyone who ever loved and lusted, that is. Hope you are doing better (back?) and that you saw a doctor (yes?). Congrats and I'm fricking exhausted. My girl is an insomniac who wakes every 2 hours. I have said I won't say, "I can't wait..." but man, I'm close, I'm so close... Toodles and cheers and high fives, Cyndi.

Aww, this is such a sweet poem, reminding me of my youth when I was a young teenager wanting to catch that elusive kiss...something so rare but could be acquired through those few means, such as a Ferris Wheel! Sounds like such a fun day! What a great description, hopefully, reading this poem, that the young man or woman catches that ever elusive kiss!! Thanks for the awesome write...I really enjoyed it!!

Nice romantic angle on this Shadorma, Andrea. My first write was romantic and then I changed it to a different theme. This is sizzlin' hot. Gwendolen
