EROTIC TANKA

wiping off my lipstick
i taste your mouth...
will you long for me tonight
when you are as distant
as the milky way?

i am as restless as the wind
while you sleep
like a floating waterlily...
how i pine for the return
of your affection

your
suffocating love--
between the sheets
i can't get close
enough

staining
watercolor paper
with hibiscus tea
that night when our
blood flowed together

I love all these three tanka, the are all extremely sensorial,visual (colour), breathing, tactile (floating). Very powerful.
