Kissing Our Way to the Moon

How many kisses do you think it’ll take
to get enough Butterflies fluttering
to carry us to the moon?

Let’s start with one kiss
and chase it with two
and keep kissing until we find out

And when we get there
let’s take wildflowers with us
to plant on that whispering surface

Bring that old fuzzy blanket we love so much
and a few fence posts to lean back on
as we watch the mysteries of the night unfold

I’ll surprise you with a little mason jar
filled with flick flickering fireflies
for us to turn loose there in the night sky

What little love notes will they write
as they sway with all those stars
so close we can touch them

Maybe a few lines
from a few whispers
I whispered to you

Let’s follow their little scribbles
and read along as we do
kissing little kisses until your butterflies blush
