Valentine/Love Haiku

your hand
touches mine ...
rainy clouds

wet grass
the smell of summer
in our coupled body

Valentine's Day
he lies in bed staring
at the ceiling

when thinking of her...
a June frog half-opens
its thick eyelids

Mr. Good Enough
or Mr. Right? she ponders...
Valentine's gift

my fingers
finally discover her folds
spring dawn

hydrangea --
when thinking of her
flower heart

the azure sky
in your eyes --
smell of blueberries

steam rising
from a hotpot for one
Valentine's Eve

Valentine's Day he makes love to the bottle
