A Writer’s Haiku

A ribbon of words
Shifting thoughts dipped into ink
My type of writer

Still the Rambling Thoughts

This is an erotic poem inspired by….Well now, that would be telling wouldn’t it?


As the clock ticks
Thoughts begin to wander
Fingers begin to ponder
Silken hose
Soft skin
Sweet scents

Hands slide on quivering thighs
Silent ripples of pleasure course
Tender caress with strong hands
Spreading, opening and exposing

Cool air ripples over electric nerves
Heart races
Breath quickens

Ropes tied
Bonds forged
Blindfold darkens
Words whispered
Soft caresses
Still the rambling thoughts

Desires ebb and flow
Open to the core
No where to hide
Giving freely

Total trust
Total freedom
Total release
Taken further than thought possible

Senses freed
Thoughts vanish
Darkness banished
Passions flow
Contentment reigns

Haiku and Micro Poetry


Shadows flicker still
Silent lives move on the screen
Nitrate in my soul

Passions creeping forth
Thoughts caressing lost desires
Tears and morning dew

Searching dark corners
Words caressing hidden thoughts
Basking in the warmth

Gentle touch wakens
Tender folds, hidden beauty
Sweet scent envelopes

Cream rises and drips
Tongue flicks out to capture drops
Morning coffee poured

Thoughts hidden, released
Doors opened, passions explored
Lost desires caressed


Micro Poetry

Flesh quivers
Lips part
Swollen and tender
Tingling spreads
Shudders begin

Breath quickens
Heart races
Muscles spasm
Passions release
And flow
Sweet scent surrounds

Melodies linger through the night
Untouched instruments awake
Taunt strings hum with gentle caress
Pleasures long forsaken aroused

As I walk through the memories of our life
Shadows reflect our lost and broken thoughts
Tears crash into the solitude of my loneliness

Thoughts revolve in shimmering twilight
Memories whirl in tepid reproach
Neglected images and blurred memories
Linger in silence

More Haiku, Tanka and Micro Poetry


Soft milky white skin
Grey eyes in circles of blue
Deep desires awaken

First snow drops appear
Sheltering in early warmth
Reflecting in light

Soft petals unfold
Silken sensual beauty
A sweet scent excites

Visual splendour
Longing for a gentle touch
To nurture and grow

Haiku afternoon
Words carefully set in place
Searching for rhythm

Loss of your smile
Absence of joy in those eyes
Solitude of pain

It’s our last best hope
A universe of wonder



White frost on roof tiles
Grey smoke rises from chimneys
Blinding morning sun
Birds gather at dawn for warmth
Mist lingers in the silence

Weary eyes open
Lost moments in time unfold
Adrift and forlorn
Thoughts linger, fears forsaken
Shadows stir in morning haze

Rushing water flows
Serenity held in time
A stillness surrounds
Mists linger in morning sun
As sweet memories echo


Micro Poetry

Thoughts emerge
Words written
Texts sent
Waiting in anticipation
Read with excitement
Thoughts diverge
Smiles escape
Desires met

Searching dark corners
Sheltered from storms
Smouldering embers
Hidden and alone
Caress kindles passion
Joy bursts forth
And lingers

A Gentle Touch

Passions Flow

Moist lips part
Intake of breath
Soft caress
Thighs quiver
Heart races
Skin pulsates
Sweat beads
Runs and pools
Body shudders
Firm hands guide

Desires long hidden
Now released
And explored
With a gentle touch
And guiding thoughts
Passions flow
And are fulfilled
Forming bonds

A Sea of Lost Memories

Shadows Take Hold

To the depths of my tears
In broken heart and mind
Her memory haunts me
Searching empty rooms
Grasping lost shadows
For a love that once was

Darkness seeks the light
Light chases lost desires
Desires hide in shadows
Shadows disguise pain
Pain releases darkness

On a sea of lost memories
As darkness surrounds
And shadows take hold
My heart forever remains

Hiaku, Tanka and Micro Poetry

Eyes twinkle with thoughts
Hidden tears search for meaning
Your kiss, amnesia

Sadness runs on time
Journey into the unknown
No baggage in sight


Released through a dream
Thoughts, at first blind become blurred
Shadows linger still
Scorched by faded memories
Melodies frozen in time

Writer’s eyes smiling
Delicate outlines emerge
Shaped through thought and time
Beauty in unspoken words
Readers longing to embrace


Shared thoughts become music
Gentle caress becomes melody
A longing gaze forms harmony
Sensual kisses creates the tune
As bodies entwine in rhythm

Green eyes open in wonder
Beauty embraced in a single glance
Soft lips on silken skin excite
Desires awaken with gentle touch

Spectres move through the emptiness in silence
In the stillness shadows weep with pity as they pass
Memories cower as thoughts move through darkness
