She: Haiku of Love

by

Dr. Darryl Winer



Steps from the shower

Droplets of water on her skin

How I envy them


Tiny rivulets

From wet hair trickling downward

Scurry from the towel


Then, grasping with hands

In youth, hungry and urgent

Now grasping with heart


The curves of her hips

How my hands perfectly match

They invite my touch


Smooth, lithe and supple

Resilient and forgiving

In mind, heart, and soul


I, watching her move

Engrossed in her pure essence

Cannot find my voice


My eyes drink her in

She, unaware of my gaze

My mind absorbs her


I know every inch

Every turn and every curve

Every bend and every bow


Sensing in darkness

As in brightest, brilliant light

I see without seeing


The small of her back

It flares from beneath my hand

Welcoming my touch


Standing behind her

My arms enfold and beckon

She presses backward

Arching to my mouth and hips

I feel her breathing

      Hello Sue-

      Thanks for dropping in, your votes and kind words. Yes, this gunsaku did get a bit steamy, but it seemed to write itself. I was just pressing the keys...

      Thanks again.

      Well, Beyond-

      Don't they say that art should touch the viewer?

      Thank you for your encouragement. I take your words as high praise.

      Hi Angel-

      Thank you for reading and sharing. Though many folks choose to publish one or two haiku at a time. I find writing a gunsaku (a group of haiku) helps me tell a story, a sequence, and complete my thought.

      Maybe if my haiku was better, I wouldn't need so many...

      Nonetheless, I can't stop writing until it feels like the thought is properly explored.

      Good morning Philly-

      You are in luck. Hubpages has several prolific Haiku/Senryu writers of substantial talent.

      Thanks for reading my offerings.

      DW - wow, yes! Sensually intoxicating (please, give me a moment here...let me take a breath and get my mind out of...I don't really know where it actually left...I have a guess though LOL) Erotic would be understatement, it's kind of projects touchable, palpable images, pretty much expressively graphic. I think I sort of stutter/stumble upon myself here? Well, yeah. Because it's THAT good! =)
