The Kiss

Kiss me.  Liquefy
my bones until I puddle
like spilled honey.  Chase

my rolling sweetness
down and claim it with your teeth.
Breathe deep of my dark

sandalwood and smoke,
but don't choke on my embers.
Kiss me to my knees.

This poem reads like honey poured from a jar-- sinuous, sensual-- exquisitely crafted. xxxj

Now that's what I'd call a kiss, one that brings you to your knees. Very passionate :)

Sounds like you were surely consumed by that kiss and then some.

Wouldn't have picked the haiku form without Heaven's prompt. It works beautifully as a set of stanzas. And great content. Full of the passion of passion.

Gemma Wiseman said...

Erotic beauty in these haikus! Especially love the whispering alliteration and image of sandalwood and smoke!

hedgewitch said...

Sensuous and a sense of a touch lingering on the skin like sandalwood lingers in a room for hours after the incense has burned out. Fine writing, MZ.
