trace with my fingers

the lines of your kindly face

seek to know you

“This will not be an easy task to bring touch into haiku, but of course I had to try it myself too and I have to say … it wasn’t easy, not easy at all, so I ran through my archive to find an “oldie”.

this cold winter night
lying naked under my quilt
feels like summer

And I just had to try to compose a new one in which I catch the gentle touch, the emotional touch and it resulted in the following haiku:

seeking affection
her soft hands on my thigh –
Morning Glory blooms

© Chèvrefeuille”

Thank you, Hamish and Chevrefeuille! This is my 1,000th post!

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.
