It’s always a surprise to discover a cache of long-forgotten poems tucked away in some obscure file but often it’s depressing to realise, on reading them, how mediocre they are.

I suppose I shouldn’t mourn the irretrievable hours spent crafting them because such time is never entirely wasted and there are always one or two that are worth a second look. 

Perhaps Besame Mucho is one such poem.


Kisses can be so diverse,

I realise.

I never knew before

how each is like a snowflake:

quite unique.

Within your arms

I am 

drab terrain made beautiful

by drifting snow.
