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 :)


Thanks for sharing your thoughts.
