Catching Kisses (Kyrielle Sonnet)

I catch your kisses in the rain,
Though lost to a greater design,
I know I’ll find you once again;
You promised this would be your sign.

When clouds will gather up above
And sun will sulk and does not shine,
It is a showering of love;
You promised this would be your sign.

We’re bound by love, eternal truth,
A will that life cannot confine.
You make a trail back to our youth;
You promised this would be your sign.

I catch your kisses in the rain;
You promised this would be your sign.

  1. I love that first line—so romantic! Another idea for a book you could publish would be one that teaches the different styles of poetry using your own poems. Schools and homeschool educators would love it!

    1. Haha well, considering I had to take out an entire stanza because I realized it was 4 lines too many, I don’t think I’m exactly qualified to be teaching anyone anything…although I do like to try! Hehehe. πŸ™‚

    1. I’m happy you thought so. πŸ™‚

  3. So, so, so beautiful Cubby, I felt so warm reading this! My favourite part:”When clouds will gather up above
    And sun will sulk and does not shine,
