move closer
out from winter wind
steal my heat.

POEM: Orange Spice

every orange
begins as a blossom
forms into fleshy orbs
of firm juicy delight
carefully peeled
slowly stripped
juicily devoured
in the heat of day

each slice
tenderly moving
from my fingers
to your lips

the tangy zest
saved set aside
left to be dried
mingled with spices
cinnamon
nutmeg
cloves
tickling
teasing
tempting
melding
with loose
dark leaves

You and I
speak softly
of today
tomorrow
and forever

the moment boils
into silver liquid
shimmering steam
whistling eagerly
for some attention
hot splashes
unleash memories
of exotic India
awaken spicy tang
orange blossoms
unfurl reborn
on our tongues
as we savor
this moment
and each other.


Haiku: Ruby (HH Prompt)

Ruby

vivid bittersweet
autumn blushed lips tinged with heat
your memory burns.

POEM: Cold Reality

Mesquita, repeat ad infinitum

Harvest moon fading away
leaves twirling to the ground
time moves forward
circles in circles
rhythms in rhythms
layers on layers
every day thematic
deja vu of yesterday
last week
last month
last year
in the same pattern
of cold reality

Each morning thinking
today will be different
as it all unfolds
silently unchanged
yet again
to see again
this really is
forever and ever
all there is
for me
wash
rinse
repeat
ad infinitum
ad nauseum


Haiku: Hot (HH Prompt)

Sesimbra, Portugal

sizzling summer sun
kisses your skin conveying
explicit intent
