Prepositions in Passion

passionate heat

In my thoughts

On my mind

Within my space

Around my house

Throughout breakfast

Up my legs

Into the heat

Between my lips

Under my skin

Beside my body

Through my clothes

Inside my walls

Against my spot

Beneath the table

Above the couch

During dinner

Over dessert

Among the sweat

Down my thighs

Upon sunrise

In deep passion

Beyond my wildest dreams.

Haiku Heat: #1 Dreams

Sonia Sanchez’s book Morning Haiku inspired me to write a Haiku for 30 Days.  I noticed that her poems didn’t all follow the 5-7-5 syllable count or pattern that I had always been taught.  After doing a little research, I discovered something clarifying the mystical Haiku.  Haiku should compare, contrast, and associate.  “If you can’t experience something with all of your senses, it is not valid Haiku material.”  Funny, I always try to write from what my senses have experienced, so that means my Haiku Heat is ready to burn!  I will maintain one number commitment of 17 sounds and 3 lines.

Dreams
Brown skin on cool sheets
aroused by midnight cravings
to orgasmic dawns
