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
