Poem of the Week on Prompt "The Kiss"





This week at The Gooseberry Garden, we have handsome collections of entries, almost 80% or above entries written on theme "The Kiss", provided by Shashi...The poem of the week is given to David King’s Poetry Picnic Week 2 entry: (See his original post via link below)



Son of a goldsmith
Gold was godly mystery
Gold was decadence
.

Icon-flat the paint
No shadows no perspective
Just the flesh stood out
.
Image as mirror
Reflecting sacred passions
Seen in human form
.
Symbols amplify
Transcend ephemeral form
Feigned naivety


PS: David King has been a long time blogger, he has been with Jingle Poetry community for quite some time as well. He has his own style of writing, and he always writes for the theme and makes a dozen encouraging comments along  the way after he linked in.

It is a pleasure to have someone such as David King in our community, keeping us going and keeping us strong.  His poetry is unique, deep, and masterful.

For me Dave's knowledge of so many sides of the arts and life in general make for some of the most interesting and thoughtful poetry that I've read in recent years. I love his work and this is another goodie!
