A word play on the subject of a kiss. Note: each final word is used twice.

Imagine streams
Of golden dreams
Much more there it seems
A promise that gleams
Imagine eyes
Rich with surprise
Much more than mere dreams
This land fraught with sighs
Add on a heart
Racing in streams
Through lands of surprise
Where love has its start
Finally kiss
Paradise gleams
Reality sighs
While love claims their heart
And so it seems
It had its start
A dream of a kiss
Deep within her eyes

    Martin, It’s particularly your attention to impact, sound, and structure that I admire and which comes out so wonderfully well in your expert forays into the repetitive poetic formats such as my favorite pantoums, rondeaus, sestinas, and villanelles.
    Respectfully, and with many thanks for such a very, very lilting, lovely, lyrical poem, Derdriu

    Martin another great peice of work look forward to the next your verse is in tact and worth the read.
