Needing More Than Hugs: Romantic Improv Email Sonnet

November 10, 2010

Is that all you want? A hug?
Oh, E, oh! I need so much more!
I need you to roll up the rug!
I need us to tear up the floor.

I need to caress your sweet-framed face,
to put you in a trance,
as I glide you from place to place,
in a soft, warm late autumn dance.

And then you’ll take me by the hand,
and lead me where you will:
up stairs, down halls, to promised lands,
where our volcanic intensity thrills.

Where days, weeks, months, years of craving
moves and melts into fun misbehaving.

Tropical Chocolate Dreaming: a Few Romantic ConTEXTing Haiku

April 6, 2010

I visited a friend, who served me chocolate from the Big Island. We drifted off to platonic sleep. I dreamed. These are versions of the same dream haiku. I don’t know what she dreamed of.

We ate choco-late./
Holding hands,we fell asleep,/
dreaming of palm trees.
We ate chocolate late./
I caressed her face, hair, hands;/
We dreamed of gold sands.

We ate chocolate late./I caressed her face and hands./We dreamt golden sands.

Where Self-Confident Went: Romantic ConTEXTing Poem

Will she/
Or in my face/

turn and race/
screaming ‘YIKE!’/

Often I’m confident;/
sometimes I don’t know where it went.
