Daydreamer is lucky today at your zoo
And damn what a kiss

I do not believe it...I got #1

(does the 'I got the #1 happy, happy dance')lol
This is, sensual, loving, romantic. Beautiful. Love it :)
RYN: I have always tried to teach my teen that showing skin sometimes, 'less is more' in leaving something left to the imagination. I think, it heightens not lessens the intensity of the subject. But, I do like fine art nude photography. Not porn but, art.

I'm left speechless. Its complete.

Daniel said...

I have been thinking lately that I wish I had a grave to enter. Yet my wish is for a different sort.

Secret Agent Woman said...

There is definitely a willing surrender that happens.

Helen said...

Brian ... I can't recall you gifting us with a haiku ... be still my heart. This one is amazing!!!

Raven said...

I don't remember ever seeing you write haiku. This is a spectacular tribute to someone you love. Or, like someone said: Phew and someone else: I'm left speechless - it's complete.

Hi! Brian...
Thanks, for sharing [The Edgar Allan Poe/Canada/South Carolina sign] and your [very] beautiful poetic words "love note in the margin of my book" can be used in [so many]different ways [this Sunday]...too!
deedee :)

Other Mary said...

Whoa Brian, that's great! (I almost said 'killer' but I couldn't quite bring myself to do it, lol)

Liza said...

there is something in submitting to those big & little deaths, even if one kiss at a time, that brings us back around, really felt this brian, nice work ;-)

Jenny Woolf said...

lori mcclure said...

Good grief. Sometimes you don't need a lot of words to make it happen. This is a favorite :)

Heaven said...

I can't believe it...its a haiku !!!!

Smiles, I love the crisp kiss on the love note ~

christopher said...

Hit it out of the park.

The Empress said...

11 words, and I've got a whooooooooooooooole story constructed in my head.

Flash fiction, boom, like that.

Hilary said...

You can write so much into a kiss.

Annmarie Pipa said...

wow. you are a talented writer!

uneven steven said...

powerful because of the seeming shocking paradox but if you are truly going to love you have to be willing to risk it all and give all of yourself without reservation- the words flowed very well too :-)

Valerie said...

Oh my... that is PERFECT.

Kat_RN said...

Short and sweet.
Have you ever heard the term "the little death"?
Kat

Dave King said...

Lovely. I go for this.

SueAnn Lommler said...

California Girl said...

Oooooooo

SaraV said...

Brian, your margins are deep! :-)

Tara Miller said...

wow, what a kiss!!

CiCi said...

That kind of goes along with Halloween week but it is pretty hot too.

hedgewitch said...

Love the little death, that kills what hampers and frets us, revives us to continue on. I love both the words and the picture, brian.

Monkey said...

the power of a kiss...

Maggie May said...

Thats the shortest poem of yours that I ever read!
Good though!

Nuts in May

Alice Audrey said...

Sunday 160? Tight.

Geraldine said...

perfection!

manicddaily said...

Ha. Lovely! k.

ladyfi said...

Just beaautiful!

Margaret said...

Oh, to receive such a kiss!

This is your first haiku? Hooray! This is a fantastic start!!!

tera said...

Do you write these down and leave them around the house for your wife? Such loving/lovely bits of soul. :)

Susan said...

Makes me wish I believed in resurrection. Shakespeare had a thing for death images linked with physical love and I do understand why: the unfathomable feelings must be turned into words somehow. And it is even harder when the spirit is engaged in true love. God Bless you.

Have you ever read Amiri Baraka's "Preface to a Twenty Volume Suicide Note"? Such a good reason to stay alive!

Lyn said...

Transfixed by this passion..I love the "no turning back" quality1

Vodka Mom said...

and now i know

what kind of man

can offer a kiss like that.


:-)

Buddah Moskowitz said...

Home run, my brother.

Syd said...

Poe worked and lived on Sullivan's Island for a while. There is a lot of his history there. And a fantastic restaurant also is there named Poe's.

Fred Rutherford said...

absolutely beautiful. Anytime someone can write a love poem that incorporates death in it and pulls It off I love it, and the way you used it here is magnificent.

emmett wheatfall said...

This is the one I've been looking for from you, Brian. Short, simple, and profound. Bravo, sir! Bravo.

Lorraine said...

short and sweet, the best love notes

Magpie said...

Does that mean she has the "kiss of death"? :) This is a beautiful thought and I don't mean to make light of it. These few lines provoke such thought.

my heart's love songs said...

Damn, boy! this is some GOOOOOD stuff!

Sue said...

*sigh*

(had to laugh at Tess's comment...)
