autumn memories

timid waves inching forward

as we fell in love

shy beginnings of  our lust

tender kisses on the beach

ϿϾ

water on warm sand

cool air around fervant need

our desire building

summer’s exit unnoticed

love’s flames all that we could see

ϿϾ

walking hand-in-hand

in the sunset of  our lives

autumn memories

wishing we could turn back time

start the journey once again

this is my attempt at  Man’yoshu Japanese Poetry  ~  Somon:  mutual exchanges of love or longing poetry;  tanka:  (5-7-5-7-7)   i wrote this as a love song between a man and a woman  { though it would apply to any couple,  no matter their gender }  the lines in italics are  her speaking and the plain text lines are  him speaking.  though this is given voice by two people,  i still tried to maintain the  “pivot line”  ( the third line of  each verse )  which can be read as the last line of  a verse comprised of  the  first three lines of  the tanka,  or as the  first line of  a verse made up of  only the last three lines of  each tanka.   so just to complicate this even more,  you can read it as entirely one poem;  you can read  her  lines  and  his  lines  or  you can read it  as the  first three lines of  each stanza/tanka  and then the last three lines of  each one.

··ร· wish ~ a duet ·ร··

dani:
what would you have me
do  for you if  any wish
i  could grant to you

Ainsley:
One touch,  your gentle
hand rested for a moment
on my heart,  with love

one touch,   from the hand
of a loving heart   …the touch
of  your beloved

A smile and a kiss
just to brush your fingertips
as they touch my heart

shivers down my spine
from the light touch of  your lips
on my  fingertips…

Fingertips follow
your wandering shivers   …down…
explore soft wonders

a gentle moan escapes
my lips…  my hand on your heart
feels it beat faster

My lips kiss your moan
taste it tenderly  …kissing
before it flies off

my lips meeting yours…
one kiss just the beginning
of  passion’s release

Looking deep within
eye speaks unto eye   …calling
come with me tonight

soul speaks unto soul…
coming together with  joy…
no longer alone

Lightly touching me
your hand strokes my heart again
granting ecstasy

two souls…   two hearts…   joined
in ecstasy    …in desire…
each   for the other

Passion smouldering
constantly glowing…   waiting
your words fan the spark

your words the spark    …fires
of  my desire ignited…
passion burns brighter

Heart enflamed – burn bright
body burns with your love’s touch
hold me in your arms…

already holding
you in my heart   …now holding
you close in my arms

Our lips are touching
wordless speech from our bodies
talk to each other

touch…   taste…   sight…   sound…   scent…
all of  our senses heightened
by  flames of  desire

Senses beyond five
allow me visions of  you
…I can see your Soul

the shells   …the bodies…
matter not ~ ’tis the souls whose
journeys continue

To Infinity
exploring our passions
we fly   …together

“wish ~ a duet”  was my  first attempt at  a renga  {a collaborative linked poem comprised of  haikū/a duet with alternate haikū verses by two poets}  written by Ainsley Allmark  {  @DolphinDancer }  and myself.  Ainsley’s stunning photography,  poetry and prose can be found on a number of  blogs in addition to  “DOLPHIN MUSE”  ~  please click on any of  the  “Dolphin”  listings in the blogrolls at the bottom of  this page to see more of  his work.  we hope you enjoyed reading this duet as much as we enjoyed writing it.  { we wrote modern haikū ~ in the past our verses would have been considered senryū.  }

between raindrops
a light scent of  musk
drifted through the air

reaching a man
sitting alone

ɕ

as though
in a dream
 the irresistible  fragrance
drew the man
to a beautiful tree

ɕ

dark pink  flowers
with delicate centers
called to him
waiting
to be plucked

ɕ

one blossom
stood out
untouched by the rain
glowing
as  if   lit  from  within

ɕ

the man
held the  fragile  flower
ever so gently in his hand
with no memory
of  how it got there

ɕ

he walked back to his cottage
 lay down
upon his bed
and lightly
began caressing its petals

ɕ

he teased
the center nibs
feeling them
become erect
under his  fingertips

ɕ

softly
he stroked
the heart
of  the bloom

ɕ

a
small
sigh
caused
petals to  flutter

ɕ

he
could not resist
flicking the depths

with
the tip of  his tongue

ɕ

a sweet nectar
began
to flow
greedily
he lapped up every drop

ɕ

the man became
intoxicated
by the heady aroma
and the ambrosia
upon his tongue

ɕ

closing his eyes
for  just a moment
he opened them
upon
a wondrous sight

ɕ

next to him
lay a beautiful woman
her luscious pink lips
smiling
at him

ɕ

they kissed
igniting
the  fires
of
a  fierce passion

ɕ

no choice
but
to
give themselves over
to their desires

ɕ

long,  slow  kisses
licking…
tasting…
nibbling…
hungry  for more

ɕ

hands
exploring…
caressing…
stroking…
pleasuring one another

ɕ

their bodies joined
as passion grew
until
 it could be contained
no longer

ɕ

an explosion
that shook their world
leaving them spent…
content
in  each  other’s  arms

ɕ

the man was awakened
by
the morning sun
streaming blindingly
through the windows

ɕ

next to him
lay a dark pink blossom
wilted
but  still  beautiful
…he smiled

·Ꮫ· say you will ·Ꮫ·

 

come

slake your thirst

drink my ambrosia

come

feed your hunger

partake of me

all i ask in return

is to do the same to you

my thirst is

unquenchable

my hunger

knows no bounds

come

just let go

lose all control

let your desires reign

fires of passion

unlike any you have known

pleasure on the verge of pain

will lead you

to ecstasy beyond imagination

come to me

and  you will never need

come to me

and  you will never leave

“Say You Will”    Kanye West

“When I grab your neck
 I touch your soul.
 Take off  your cool
 Then lose control.”
