  3. Wonderful haiku, sensual and mesmerising - the imagery is vivid, the sounds of the words as they roll off the tongue are a joy.

  4. Ahh, a love poem slipped to someone, hand gently touching hand.

    Then again, a post-it note left on the windshield of the hunky new gardner.

    Lots of possibilities.

  5. I was about to move away from my Haiku obsession but your offering might begin a movement. My innocent mind read this as simply about water and mother earth. But then again...

  10. Oh...wisteria...how lucky you are to grow it in your garden. I've no luck with it. I bet it's well established and beautiful when in bloom. I enjoyed your poem....are you tired of summer yet? I can't wait for autumn...

    It's 108 and very dry here in Phoenix today - especially enjoyed the thought of the drought being saturated.

  19. As I walked over a bridge on the campus of the University of New Mexico today, I exclaimed...Wisteria..in bloom, in August!

    It never happens here, but today we had a deluge leaving the streets submerged and hail stones pelting Old Town.

    Synchronicity.

  46. You, my dear, are an artist. I've always loved your poetry.

    Apologies for my absence. Things got a little out-of-hand around here and then I went away. Away!

    It was good to get away but I see I have much catching up to do.

    ReplyDelete

  52. Best haiku since yon time! Every attribute of poetry squeezed into 17 syllables. A model for all wannabees.

    ReplyDelete
  61. This made me wish Mary Chapin Carpenter could set this one to music...remember her "Passionate Kisses"...But your lines are so few and far more commanding. How could any man resist!!
    "Shouldn't I have succulent kisses?""
    Humm, sounds more like Canadian singer Diana Krall! Love it!

    ReplyDelete
