Haiku - senses

brush fingers against
the dark nap of velvet –
black cat on my knee.


silver bracelet
glints in the candlelight –
one red rose.


red wine
warm in the mouth –
sweet conversation.


sensual scents -
patchouli oil and jasmine

hang in the air.


conversation
blends with the music –
dancing feet.



Senses for One Deep Breath

You are so clever - I love the deeply sensual feeling in these haiku as compared to your cleaner, more esthetic series on your other blog.

Stunning!

Lovely - a night time version, ripe with sensuality. Great work!

This one calls up a perfect winter evening indoors with good friends, cat in one's lap, a rosy fragrance and happy music.

Wine one and dancing feet one are perfect!! Love how they play and evoke and are restful all at the same time.
