OK guys, I posted this in the dark forum but it isn't getting read much (thanks goddess and Jenny Lee) so I brought it here...it is a haiku sequence....

Blood Passion

waves whisper secrets
silent white-capped passion plays
you and I the stars

here in this haven
with grey gulls circling
I taste your lifeblood

salty as my dreams
washed by this guardian sea
your blood on my tongue

I savor its essence
know full your tethered passion
desire its freedom

waves move in rhythms
our wild hearts beat in tandem
shall I set you free?


------------------
"We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion.....the powerful play goes on and you may contribute a verse. What will your verse be?"

Beki, I hadn't seen it before and I think it is brilliant. What a strong combination! Well done.
