Delicate flower

Soft velvet petals
Reveal a carmin center
Delicate flower
***
Fingers caress her
Gently on the outer rim
Sending sweet shivers
***
Life sap swiftly flows
Colours change, hot pink, deep red,
Petals full, engorged
***
Sweet nectar pools 'round
The center bud, glistening
Precious scent wafting
***
Creatures, wild, enthralled
Bend forward, fascinated
Lapping the thin dew
***
The flower opens
Receptacle for male seed
Generously spread
***
The prompt today was flowers, their scent and so on...and the form was haiku.
I played a bit with double entendre... Because I'm me ;)

  1. A bit of a nudge-nudge wink-wink quality to this one!
    I cut my teeth on Monty Python's humor, I fear.
    It's a beautifully written piece.

  2. Thank you :)
    As I said, I didn't intend for it to be "in your face"... or did I? :D
    I had fun :)
