Mwah

I learned from the ancients
I lived on the mountaintop
I fell while strolling
and remembered nothing of my past
I met you and you loved me
how else could it have worked?
and now I am remembering
and now I am uniting your tribe
with my family on the mountaintop.
A kiss is when two worlds come together and tenderly say hello over and over.

Ed, this is beautiful writing. "I met you and you loved me." How very special is that! And, as Susie said, the last line takes MY breath away too.

This piece does a wonderful job of relating the most basic of human needs...and the most powerful...that is love.

Nicely written Mr. Pilolla

Ed, this is beautiful! It's so touching! I love it all, but your last sentence, puts everything together perfectly! I love the art work too. The sun and the moon, united as one! Stunning! Did you do the art work? Have a great day!

Janie Junebug said...

That is so amazingly beautiful I can hardly stand it. Of course, it's hard to stand because I'm jealous that I don't write that well.

Love,

New End Studio said...

I'm seeing trust, surrender, and growth- how else could it have worked? The hello makes a beautiful image. Thanks, Ed.

The Empress said...

Oh, poets.

Where would our world be without poets?

Going from zero to sixty in such a small amount of space.

The wild ride of a fast emotion..the beauty of not being able to stop your feelings.

I love that.

Tracy said...

Be still my heart....*sigh*... This is so lovely! A kiss is like a tender way to say hello, it really is. I like thinking of it so anyway! I'm curious about the artwork image too, Ed. Is this yours? :o)

Rashmi said...

Hi... I am reading Mahabharata and the stories from it. Its a Hindu epic and contains the Bhagwad Gita-its like the Bible for Christans. Gita has less to do with God and more to do with the way to live . Very relevant to modern times. The book I am reading currently is in English. Its called- Jaya. Author- Devdutta Pattnaik. Its an easy read. Contains the stories from the Mahabharata. Read the articles on mahabharataonlie if you are interested. Especially the works by Satya Chaitanya are really good.

In fact all the great books whether the Gia or the Bible have some amazing insights on how to live. Only depends on how they are interpreted.
take care.

Elisabeth Hirsch said...

Please make a book of all your poetry! It is amazing and it makes your readers feel so many emotions at once. I'd so love to have a book filled with your work!

hedgewitch said...

Enjoyed seeing a poem from you Ed. It's a good one, too, personal and universal.

Ed Pilolla said...

tracy, the image is from shutterstock. i don't do any of the artwork i use. i do enjoy browsing and picking out art to match a piece.

Ed Pilolla said...

thanks for the love:)
