When space is silence…

Words, sounds, and space…

The tempo of a thousand kisses

A thousand kisses said the song and it sounded black to me, absent of color, an emptiness containing love or passion. Absence where movement remains, somehow floating on that emptiness with a sound that makes it belong.

What movement? -you ask. The movement of closeness between two persons, lips sensually connecting with each other, kisses in ephemeral smoke … white … or red. Red with gray swirling into darkness at a larghissimo tempo, almost hypnotizing our senses.

Dark sounds evoking lovers.

A Sensual autumn midnight

lightless and timeless.

Today’s theme is synesthesia. I wrote a haibun poem. The inspiration came from the fact that I started writing when my stereo played “A thousand kisses deep” by Leonard Cohen. Read other poets take on the theme at dVerse — Synesthesia.

A black bird

               Touch

Memory
    Completeness

                               Heat

A black bird covers the day
with butterfly wings
  in a hug surrounding the sky

               Touch

It’s space between two bodies
when the distance disappears

                               Heat

Finding colors in the absence
Feeling contact in a sign

    Completeness

The wings open the exit of dreams
Nobody wants to return

I let you go

I thought you were about to leave
      I was wrong

I cried
A bit too much
Perhaps too little

I cried      for three years
Until that day
when you didn’t buy the rose
when we knew it was too late

A mistake at once
a milestone at sight

I let you go
I let me go

Seagulls crying

Pas de Deux
(Coda)

At the center of the day
                                  I  saw   you
    with your good-looking suit
  waiting for me

I’ve been waiting for you   too

  Today is the moment
when we heal our   wounds
Remove the mirrors from our eyes
                           throw them   away

No more reflections of our own image
    in each others eyes
We’ll see through

We need to hurry
Join our hands with the movement
of a silent kiss

            I do love the way you   dance

Pas de deux

Definition from Britannica Concise Encyclopedia:

Dance for two performers. A characteristic part of classical ballet, it includes an adagio, or slow dance, by the ballerina and her partner; solo variations by the male dancer and then the ballerina; and a coda, or conclusion, with both partners dancing together to display their virtuosity. Celebrated pas de deux occur in Sleeping Beauty, Swan Lake, and Giselle.

Definition from Dictionary of Dance:
A dance for two, a duet. In classical ballet there are also pas de trois, pas de quatre, and pas de six, for three, four, and six dancers respectively. The classical pas de deux follows a traditional pattern: an entrée and adagio for the ballerina and her cavalier, a variation for the male dancer, a variation for the female dancer, and a final coda which reunites the partners. A classical pas de trois is usually for one male and two female dancers and follows the traditional pattern of the pas de deux.
