Freedom: love haiku

you know that freedom 

is just another word for

nothing, everything


you see that freedom

is responsibility

not a way to run


you live the freedom

that your soul requires, but

you also like to hide


you know


The Body Is a Medium for Telling Stories

body as canvas

a medium for telling

stories about us


body as vision

a vessel for exchanging



body as witness

universal offering

a light in the world

All of Me: Four Love Haiku

your eyes are not mine

but in them i see myself

my heart, mind, body


your hands are not mine

but when they rest upon me

I am only yours


your heart is not mine

but when I feel it beating

my own heart must sing


your life is not mine

but when you bind yours with mine

you have all of me

take these hands, love: three haiku


take these hands and bind

them to your body: tether

your life, love, by mine


take this body and bind

it to your life: render

your world, love, to mine


take that love and bind

it to your world. offer

your hands, love, with mine

Hunger, Thirst and Yearning: Haiku of Desire and Fulfillment

hungry for your time

and attention, affection

undivided and free


thirsting for your touch

and energy, your calm cool

hand smooth upon me


yearning for your words

your voice reverberating

sounds are all the same


take what you will now

give me what you want to feel

call me by my name

Haiku of Love and Death, Loss and Gain

if you should die and 

leave me here, your death will not

be a departure


“so sorry for your

loss”, they’ll say, but i know: there

is no other way


one of us is bound

to go before the other,

but no one is lost


life is change, and yet

death is neither threat nor loss

our love was my gain
