Silver moon caress

Silent shivers on sleeping lake

My hand on your skin

Raindrop on nose tip

Teeters to jump past wet lips

Eyelashes cheer, wave

Humming bird yearns more

Petals open slow and shy

Leaves rustle gossip

Sleepy hand searches

Crumpled side of empty bed

Last nights memories

Steam frosts windows hide

As my will melts in your heat

Car radio croons

Waves try, try again

Sand beach yields some, some more

My words and your love

Indigo deep night

Fireflies guide me back from dark

The twinkle in your eyes

A brush of your hands

Means a thousand silent words

Haiku in fingers

Haiga: Hands

Clouds flock on sky fields

Thoughts of you through plane window

Grazing on dream grass

Haiga: Cloud flock

Life book, leaves flutter

The story moves on daily

Love binds, holds the spine

      I'm sharing your beautiful haiga (haiku with imagery) another time. This is one of my favorites of your haiga collections.

      "Silent shivers" on warm skin and open hearts when we read your beautiful words. The pictures you chose just increase the depth in your words and imagery. Loved this!

      Voted up, awesome and beautiful.

      @sofs, 'Master of Romance' sounds like a great degree to have! I am, but a humble wordsmith with no such aspirations but I like the way it sounds. Thank you so much.

      @Amy, Haiku is yet but another expression of feelings, perceptions and observations much like your own work. These may not strictly adhere to the classic haiku format - but I like the freedom of the format where you try to say much with so little. 5-7-5 syllables ( although the original Japanese versions have 5-7-5 'on' that roughly but not strictly equate to English syllables). Thanks for your lovely words.
