Haiku’s Of Love - Poem by Gert Strydom

When the small death folds
around us, both of us sweat
and die together

you drive your nails in
I hear you moan, see your glance
the whole world sweeps past.

    Nice... well done. It's good to drag haiku out of the tepid world of frogs, ponds and dragonflies and heat its seventeen syllables on the hotplate of desire. (Report) Reply
