De Jackson, aka Whimsygizmo, is our host of dVerse this day. De says:

I want you to blow some kisses into your poems today… Whatever mood or form you choose, just be sure your poem gives that Q smackeroo: precisely 44 words, not including the title, and literally containing some form of the word “kiss.”

Hello Goodbye

At the docks,

with gulls calling,

water’s surface is

sun diamonds.

Our eyes connect,

our lungs draw

salt, our hearts are

a valentine balloon,

pulling up and away.

Our lips pulling

to kiss, completing

heaven’s circuit.

You wave as your

ferry leaves the dock.

Update on 2/13/19:  I’ve changed the title to Goodbye Hello, which is more fitting.
