You



Summer heat frog-leaps
under ginger-shadowed moon
My lips are on fire-

  1. Ha. Lips on fire is not bad,
    as long as they are not sun burnt.
    Smoking hot out there today
    lovely color of moon you chose too.

  2. I love the smell of a haiku in the morning; it smells like violet verses & truncated stanzas. Have been playing rough with the haiku gang since Haibun has become my go-to form; done my own way, of course.

  8. So is the "you" the reader? And can we really never know the poet then?

  21. Perhaps you know how partial I am to poetic brevity, whether it's Three Lines, Haiku, or Free Verse--

    This is strikingly sensual. Just lovely!

  22. You have a way of making words come alive, Grace. This is beautiful.

  23. I love the unexpected 'frog leaps' instead of 'leap frogs'--adds a twist to the words that causes the reader to sit up and pay closer attention. Very effective.
