theme thursday kisses

little hands hold a curious rodent nose twitching against my face, "mummy, george is giving you a kiss" and so, in intent, is george's guardian

the slobbery innocence of a tiny mouth, not truly pursed, on my face

the kiss-by-proxy of a shared drink

the kiss of nature in a rainbow

butterfly kisses on smooth young cheeks at bed time

a passionate embrace

the kiss of the Father in the warm winter sun
or the first warm breeze of spring


  1. I love this, Kylie.

    "the kiss of the Father in the warm winter sun," it's all beautiful.

  2. Nice take on the theme :)

    Happy TT

  3. Wonderful, especially the last lines...and incredible header!

  4. i'll put my coffee ring on the table...lots of memories in those kisses...even from little rodents..

  5.'re such a good sport with George!

  6. Well I have never been that close to a rodent (though we did have pet mice)!

    I ruefully ponder that maybe furry-animal kisses are all that are left for me!

    I like this poem kylie- the way you have strung together different types of kisses; this is lovely.

  7. I'm so dying for the warm kiss of spring! Very cute little erm . .rodent!

  8. "the kiss-by-proxy of a shared drink"


    The whole thing.

    My theme would only be slobbery not poetic.

  9. Kyles,

    WOW!!! I absolutely love it!! This is so beautiful... You are a true poet - You write from life...

    Much love, M

  16. cinnamon,
    dont entertain the thought that animal kisses are the only ones left
    i wasn't actually meaning to be a poet, just trying to make random thoughts look interesting :)

  24. skeeter
    thank you

  25. Hi Kylie,
    Your mouse picture must my be my theme today.
    I got to work to be told not to go into the cleaners room as two night staff had chased a mouse into the room and had placed towels,sheets outside the door to stop it escaping.
    After waiting sometime for our mainetence man to turn up i was told to go in. I was in and out very quickly. The man turned up but he was adamant the mouse has got out earlier. I said it couldn't have as the door was sealed with towels and sheets. I reckon it is hiding in there and knowing my luck it will be me who will see it there on monday. I also had a girl from an agency in to help me who was indian and said i will pick it up by the tail and put it out for you if i see it. I have had a long week doing 8.5 hours this week starting at 7am. anyway the money will come in handy as this dosen't happen often that i have to cover the other lady while she is on sick leave. It is the first time in the time i have been there they have employed an agency person. They finally realised that they were asking too much of me, but i still had to stay and do the six beds on the other ladys side after going my side of the building. So i ended up with 13 beds each day. The agency girl just cleaned the basins, and vacuum the rooms.Sorry i seemed to have rambled on.

  26. kylie, google image or not, it's a right nice interpretation and works well, here :)

  27. Kia ora Kylie,
    This is beautiful, you are a poet. Like it or not you have a way with words.

  28. hi jo,
    the funny thing about mice is the way they can disappear, utterly vanish!
    i hope your mouse disappears, i like our george but a feral running about isnt quite the same....

    13 beds a day sounds like A LOT. is there some kind of protocol saying who does what? couldn't the agency girl have done a few beds?

    i'm sure you will have loads of plans for the extra money, make sure you spoil yourself a little bit though, theres no point working your butt off for no benefit!

    hope you had a great weekend

  29. subtorp,
    two visits to one post, wow!
    the phoenix is just so typical of my style: the swirling colours and the slightly abstract appearance


  30. ruahines, kia ora!

    such a compliment, thank you :)
    it's not so much that i wouldnt want to be a poet, just that i'm not really worthy of the title

    have a great week!
