he holds her hands ardently
sun smiling his face
he asks her shyly
silver ring gleaming his hand
boldly she answers
warm soft kisses
cool stiff composure
salt on his lips
toes curl in delight with kisses
sweeter than custard
Author's Note: Written for Haiku Heights - Prompt # 64 ~ Kiss. This is part of the on-going month long haiku challenge at Haiku Heights.
Also shared with D'Verse Poets Pub (doors open every Tuesday at 3 pm EST). Link your poem (any form) and enjoy warm company.
In writing haiku poems (3 lines, 17 syllables) I strive to provide a contrast of images between the first line and the third line.
