I was the one with the color-blue eyes, 
you were the wind on the sea. 
Of all the oceans tossed by your kiss 
why did it have to be me? 

                                                Pardon this wind for causing the wave. 
                                                One as free-spirited as I 
                                                was myself surprised, your gravity called, 
                                                your lips I could not deny. 

A soaring breeze calms not a sea 
and I would be remiss, 
to think my journey to your heart 
began with but a kiss. 

                                                Why would you wonder, oh King of the deep 
                                                did you not feel the spark, the magic? 
                                                You wound my heart, with thoughts that start 
                                                to doubt my intent, it’s tragic. 

Indeed I felt it, burning deep, 
your spark inflamed desire. 
Enraptured now, I long for more, 
my heart a raging fire. 

                                                 Arise, my King, from current doubt 
                                                 and begin to breathe anew. 
                                                 Haven't I hovered long enough 
                                                 for you to get a clue? 

Bend, oh Queen, yield your will 
and we will rise above, 
the ebb and tide of mortal bane 
swept away in love. 

                                                  Into your ocean I'll sail my vessel 
                                                  on a course set sound as stone. 
                                                  Prepare yourself oh majesty 
                                                  for I will share your throne.

Well know I am duly intimidated! What a fabulous collaboration, John may have set it up, but it takes two to betrothed King and Queen. Kim and John this piece is a classic! I have but a mere flesh wound :), jill

Oh, I see! It's an actual dialogue between the two of you. That is so cool! I want to do it too, Kim! How do you do it? Just approach someone and ask them for a poetry date? Like, "Dear Lyric Man, I have seen you around, do you come here often? Please don't think me forward but would you like to banter with me sometime? Give me a jingle and we'll play it by ear" Haha! I'm gonna go for it

I see that you have added a couple of more gems to your collection. “ WAVE INTO YOU - A Collaborative Write with JW ” a very interesting piece, reminds me of the Polish Princess ( I am sure you have read about her in my stuff ) and her art collaboration ( three artist painting on the same canvas ) .
