Spume Kisses

Love Haiku #12

Spume kisses on toes—
He drew me out to sea the
summer the sun froze.

Rumbling Thunder

Love Haiku #9

Thunderclap wakes me
in bed, void of your body
heat. I remember

a time when your eyes
lit my room as lightning, your
love gushed like driving

rain. In the distant
shower outside my window,
I think of you. How

you smashed into me
like hurricane winds and kissed
me with tempest force.

You are my storm, Dear
Lust. When darkness descends, I
burn for your fire.

Love Haiku #5

He made sweet tea in
the mason jar he used to
catch lightning bugs the

night before. We swing
on the porch bench, sticking tongues
down to lick sugar

caked on the bottom
as the sun sets and our cheeks
glow like lightning bugs.
