Young Loves First Kiss

The prompt from Poetry Picnic Week 2 is ‘The Kiss’ – I thought I would try a Tanka (a poem consisting of 31 syllables in 5 lines with 5 syllables in lines 1 & 3 and 7 syllables in the rest)

our very first kiss
in St. Michael’s infant playground
five-year olds in love
decree nisi due tomorrow
hearts no longer entwined

      I don’t remember a kiss at five, but then ago it’s such a long time since I was that age anything could have happened!

I look forward to reading your comments
