Haiku Poem; About First Love

Updated on August 8, 2013



Heart beat,fluttering
clouds dancing across the sky
a woman in love


A strand of her hair
falling across eyes of blue
looking at me,smiles


Blushing,a rose bud
coyly lowers her head as
a breeze passes by


Innocence,her charm
translucent beauty,like a
fragile porcelain


Not yet a woman
pure as pristine mountain snow
no longer a child


Standing on tip toes
her quivering lips reaches
for a lover's kiss


Anticipating
the afterglow of sunset
a tremulous touch

When two become one
passion awakens, and her
winter turns to spring


Hands around my neck
a cherry between her lips
sweet and inviting


White crane stirs the pond
as a silent reed gives life
to a lover's song


A Swallow,swiftly
autumn's light,her fading kiss
ends a secret tryst


A sad expression
reflection so deep, her eyes
echos the dark night

Nothing left but memories....
Nothing left but memories....

    It seems natural

    Magic flows from your pen my friend with these words that you weaved, a gift you give us and I accept them in reverence. Your last two thoughts were simply enchanting and powerful.

    Doug Turner Jr. ~ Thank you for your comment. I found it to be in the chronological order of the seduction in these poems. Pleasant never forced. like floating ,natural.....and then I misread the word "ORGANIC" I thought you meant "ORGASMIC"......:))

    A pleasant way with words; never forced or unnecessary. Reading this is like floating down a river in a canoe. It's organic and natural. Well done.

    SilentReed the simplistic echos of love reverberates in my soul. I can see the image you portray here. Love is in the air I can sense it:0)

    lovely, delightful poetry at it's finest from your not so silent pen. Bravo, I rate it Up and Up some more.
