A Little Haiku in the Night


The touch of your hand
soft at the nape of my neck:
electrifying.

This is my response to the January 3 prompt at Haiku Bones. I'm a bit late, but I'm struggling to catch up on my blogroll, so I never saw the prompt until tonight!

Like it. A directly sensual haiku - quite unusual.

Nice one, Sandra! I think haiku are the hardest poems to write.

Your poem is lovely.
Also, enjoyed your story in the last post.
I need to dig out my Goldberg book.

Lovely, soft, tender haiku. Thank you for sharing it.

Dominic, it was the prompt. It took me straight there.

Good morning, Karen. Thank you.

Sandra Leigh,
Thank you so much for visiting my blog. Lightning rod for cats . . . great idea. You know, I never really noticed a static problem until this year. Forgot to mention on my first visit how much I like that picture/header. It's great! Thanks again for visiting and leaving a comment. Come see me anytime.
