Vikipedia: A Stolen Kiss

…a summer rain 

                        at night  

                                   so brief

                                              so sweet

                                                           so full of passion

like a stolen kiss from an imaginary lover…

Like the 'frozen drops'. But title confusing me. References?
vz-nostalgia: You can find the answers to those confusing questions in my little poem, Ms. Jamoula. smile

This illustrated romance deserves much better prose than a collection of Mills&Boon cliches, VZ...shame, shame!

"like a stolen kiss from a secret lover…" could be mistaken for sexual harassment...

[grin]
vz-nostalgia: Hahaha. I guess I have to dig for Mills & Boon on google, as I have no idea what you are talking about, Ray. smile

He doesn't know what Mills & Boon is. He knows the sky is blue on a cloudless day? The anti-propaganda wasn't that effective and you are too young to have been a real victim tongue

Lovely picture to illustrate the poem.

Louis: He doesn't know what Mills & Boon is.
VZ: Apparently, there is a huge gap in my cultural education that I wasn't aware of, Louis. Got to patch it up. smile
Hi VZ! You got me there thinking huh, but excellent description! smile Where's my kiss? Make it quick! Lol. Cheers!
vz-nostalgia: I got you thinking... That's the best compliment one can get, Ms. Faithless. smile
Where is your kiss? You're still young. There will be many stolen kisses from many lovers, Ms. Faithless. Be patient. smile

Ah those romantic little books I outgrew at about 15.
But I wouldn't outgrow this image, love the movement of the water.
vz-nostalgia: Fortunately, the river of these little romantic books had missed the valley of my youth, Ms. Aussie. smile At times ignorance is a bliss. smile

Sweet...such a poetic image with this wonderful verse.
vz-nostalgia: Oh, Ms. Laurie. I knew that there would be someone out there for whom both the image and the verse will strum the strings of soul. smile

VZ,
You've done it again! Fantastic! Did the drops impact a medium (glassing) or simply slower shutter speed?
The photo is better than the poetry - wink - Nostalgia from personal experience? - wink again!
vz-nostalgia: :
Sergio: Did the drops impact a medium?
VZ: That would be really stupid of me just to stick the camera into a pouring rain, don't you think, Sergio? smile

Sergio: Nostalgia from personal experience?
VZ: "He that is without sin among you, let him first cast a stone..." smile

I admire your refined procession- waterdroplets just flying-streaming from heaven to earth- the feel of water-watering has been captured well and I like the dark-olive-coloured green- Sergio is right- the photo is also for me better than the poetry- but I have to respect they are your personal words! Maybe, that your words might sound more original/ more untouched in Russian? (I personally notice that I more tend to stereotypical expressions in English than in my original differenciated motherlanguage) I don't know what Mills & Boon is, never heard, never read! I hope I didn't hurt your soul!
vz-nostalgia: :
Philine: Sergio is right- the photo is also for me better than the poetry...
VZ: I wouldn't trust Sergio on anything, less on poetry, Philine. smile

Philine: I hope I didn't hurt your soul!
VZ: You must be kidding, dear. It would take much more to hurt my soul than calling what I wrote a cheesy poetry. smile

Mr. VZ, both picture and poem are really touching thus 'nostalgic'...

the idea of being kissed by an imaginary lover really strikes me deeply...

the only thing that cures my imsomnia are drops of rain falling over me...after that, i get fast asleep... smile
vz-nostalgia: :
K.A.: the idea of being kissed by an imaginary lover really strikes me deeply...
VZ: Really? Tell me more about it, Ms. K.A.

K.A.: the only thing that cures my imsomnia are drops of rain falling over me...
VZ: It's like counting sheep, but more romantic, Ms. K.A. smile

vz-nostalgia: :
...the rains shall wash away
all remnants of the kisses
before the winter of the frozen dreams
arrives...
I like the rain drops, so romantic...
vz-nostalgia: Do you find snow flakes as romantic as the rain drops, Ms. Renata? smile

Well, as a typical student of Literature (one who lives in a very sunny country)I usually fancy winter symbols as romantic: snow, rain, strong winds... they are romantic, aren't they? wink
vz-nostalgia: As a student of literature from a very sunny country, you probably got your romantic sense of winter from Boris Pasternak's "Doctor Zhivago". smile
As someone who grew up in Siberia, I must think twice before I agree with the notion that winter is romantic. smile
All ideas of Romanticism are from Europe, the winter is our idea of longing and desire. But yes, winter bores me in real life. And I live in Rio de Janeiro, a city that must have no more than a couple of weeks of winter every year... wink
vz-nostalgia: Yep, the ideas of Romanticism started spreading from Western Europe almost two hundred years ago and seems they finally reached South America. smile I see as much Romanticism in Jorge Amado's "Dona Flor and her two husbands" as in the works of Goethe, Hugo or Stendhal. smile

And a shimmering one too Vik. These things look like bejeweled sperms to me!
vz-nostalgia: Gosh. Maybe I should sell this image to a frozen sperm bank for marketing, Chris? Would you like to help me out? I bet you have some connections. smile
Nice one, big drops of rain you have there.
vz-nostalgia: If I live in Texas, Nig, my answer would be: "Yep. Everything is bigger in Texas" smile
as usual lovely image, thought provoking poetry.
only you can compare counting sheep to the kisses of an imaginary lover! i think a kiss is a kiss, to be enjoyed and not analysed.for someone who doesn't know mills and boom you have a mills and boomy lines.
vz-nostalgia: :
Toun: ...a kiss is a kiss, to be enjoyed and not analysed
VZ: Tell this to Sigmund Freud, Ms. Toun. I bet he's already enraged up in heaven. smile

Toun: for someone who doesn't know mills and boom you have a mills and boomy lines.
VZ: Didn't you just say: "thought provoking poetry"? As little as I learned about Mills & Boon, that is not what they are famous for. smile

Excellent use of imagery and words Victor, it has a dark feel to it, almost reminiscent.
vz-nostalgia: That's the only palette I have here, Ms. Mia, the image and the words, fused together.
I guess these are raindrops, but when I first oprned this image I thought I was looking from above at couples on a dancefloor.
vz-nostalgia: Imaginary lovers, dancing their hearts out... wow... I like it even better, Ian. smile

I like the picture and your poetry. Would call it visual poetry.
vz-nostalgia: Visual poetry would work just fine, Nyssen. Or visual songs, if one considers an image as a melody and words as lyrics. smile
