Looking at Kisses

Kisses fly
Strike
Your cheek turns red

The above is a Pi-ku, a poetry form derived from the Haiku in which the number of syllables per line is determined by the first 3 digits of pi. Thus the syllable count is 3/1/4. Like a Haiku, there is no rhyming.

I was at a restaurant with my friend the fashionista. While we waited for our meal I was able to do some people watching. It was very amusing. There was a group of young girls probably in middle school at a table. Maybe it was a birthday gathering? They were being chaperoned by a couple women sitting in a nearby booth. Then a group of boys arrived, perhaps a little older, who were seated in close proximity to the girls. Some flirting ensued. Nothing overt and nothing inappropriate. The girls finished and as they gathered their things to leave, one of the boys caught the eye of one of the girls and he blew her a kiss. She blushed such a red that I had to chuckle. I doubt she will ever see him again but she will likely never forget that kiss – even though his lips never touched her cheek!

    1. WELL DONE Pi-ku, And such a beautiful thought for the young lady described, she will remember that for a long time…I find movie people interesting when the get together, they sort of “kiss the air” beside the other person~!

                  1. Thank you, Val. I feel it! Iโ€™m going to update everyone this week. I had a follow up scan and now another scan is needed. I have new spots. Blood counts tanked. Iโ€™m sure thatโ€™s why I felt awful. Weโ€™re going to try radiation and am bringing a specialist on board from Denver. My life is definitely different. But through it all Iโ€™m learning and still growing. Itโ€™s tough for my whole family. I give God the glory for being here and the miracles in those around me as well. Sending you love and hugs. Iโ€™ve really missed being here. Excited to get back! ๐Ÿ’›๐Ÿฅฐ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿค—

                    1. That small still voice whispered that you needed the extra prayers… I’m going to give your name to the prayer chain and the rosary society ladies – they will be praying ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป๐Ÿ™๐Ÿป for you too! We meet on Tuesday so I’m hoping your Wednesday is a really good day! โค โค โค

      1. Sometimes I think that, and then rethink, and glad I’m not! The best part of my life started on 1989 when Hubby and I met, though had we met any earlier we might not have liked each other.

  1. Love the story about the lad blowing a kiss to the lass. This is a memory that this young woman will fall back on for years to come, in all its simplicity and innocence.
    I’ve just incorporated memoir writing into our monthly Book Club meetings. It is often the simplest memories that we hold more dearly ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. It is actually the content as well as the art of poetry that is so important when a short Pi-Ku and the back story can bring so many more comments and deep thoughts than many long drawn out poems from imagination. Reminds me; I need to get back to writing Haiku which usually come about with current events. Let’s see what has happened at Mar-a-Lago lately.

    1. SAM I would love to read some of your inspired Haiku! The events going down around and concerning 45 will no doubt shape the course of our democracy. I am terrified that we will slip into autocracyโ€ฆ

        1. I posted a few Haiku today but have so many I did not even start to cover many because they are short, it takes a little editing to put them in one post.. Let me know if you need more.

  3. That is the sweetest thing about early adolescence. Even when there was “flirting” by insulting, I
    could tell, by a girl’s tone of voice and body language, that I was okay in her eyes.

    1. Youth! Son#1 was upset because one of his class mates punched his shoulder. I had to explain that she was just trying to say she liked him. That turned into a discussion about never hitting girlsโ€ฆ hehe! Those were the days!
