Caress the soft skin;
Breathe in the heady fragrance;
Taste heaven, taste warm;
Nectar dripping like honey
Onto the tongue, down the chin.
Before we run out of the month of September, I wanted to participate in Yeah Write’s September poetry slam and try the art of the tanka. It is a Japanese form of poetry similar to haiku, but with 5 lines and 31 syllables, broken down per line to 5-7-5-7-7.
