“Cosmic Love” – Haiku II

11—
Animal calling
Contort your spirit to fly
Wingless to heaven

12—
Cadaverous bombs
We will burn apart at the
Hands of silk-dressed boars

13—
Molten tiara
Bloodlike magma in orbit
The tempered spiral

14—
Stinging nettle man
My reclusive fantasies
Sultry as marsh spring

15—
Sweat beads on lotus
Intimate on the pond shore
Orange blossom dew

16—
Thousand centuries
Gorged on your cryptic beauty
Base bacteria

17—
Audible cosmos
Our love is but a plaque smear
In this mass chaos

18—
Heart stimulation
In gas-lit utopia
Mirage hides its age

19—
Grave in birch circle
If you find it, the riddle
Sonnet is carved within

20—
Earth beckoned our name
As one sister embraced in
Her lush, ancient heart
