Lust- A Haiku necklace

I was going through my old posts and I realised that the last time I posted a haiku was almost 18 months back!!! So I thought I'll post a haiku necklace(Haikus stringed like pearls to form a poem) to make up for all the haikus I should have posted in the last year and a half.

For those who are new to the land of Haikus - Haiku is a Japanese lyric form that has seventeen syllables, arranged in 3 lines of 5/7/5 syllables each; usually invoking an aspect of nature or the seasons.
It consists of two sentences, separated by a puntuation mark, and usually, the last line holds a sort of key to the verse, a point to drive home so to speak.It is usually build around the beauty and feelings depicted by nature.

Ivy creeps and twines,
Your body is close to mine,
I'll not let thee go!

Grapes sweeten thy lips,
Succulent,smooth,temptous red,
O what thirst I feel.

Bosoms heave in heat,
Mangoes ripened calls me near,
On them soon I feast.

Twilight plays on skin,
Your navel licked; then I kissed.
Clenched your toes in haste.

Blissful moans I hear,
As I merge,blend into ye,
Drenched in passions rain.

Cool mist gentle touched,
Our bodies on green moss laid,
Thus this Haiku ends.

petulant phallus
oozing white, fretting torso..
screaming and dreaming....

Wonderfully written..
Love and regards~ sayan

very sensuous.
I am seeing a shift in your themes.
From love lost to love regained in full bloom. ;)

This beautiful but as far as I know Haiku is a Japanese poetry form that should be related only to nature.

@Nanda: This is the first time I'm replying to any comment on my blog :P

On the personal front, yes, it is love regained in full bloom...but that won't stop me from writing depressing love poems :D

Thank you for your comment :)
