Pink Kisses


Used by Permission of Resa Swork

hot pink kisses
satin rose petals scattered
scent of carnations

warm brownie sundae served
with hug-and-kisses wishes

Notes: Happy Valentine’s Day on February 14th!

This love poem is a tanka, defined in Oak Leak Tanka. Please feel free to add your haiku or tanka in comments here, if you are moved to join in. 🙂 In the past, Japanese poets would alternative haiku (3 lines, 5/7/5 syllables) with two 7/7 lines, playing off each other’s work. It’s fun, if you want to try.

The art is courtesy of Resa Swork who is devoting the month of March to kids at her site, Graffiti Lux and Murals. If you want to contribute a poem or story, she is welcoming words.
