I'm going to try to tell a story this time, in haiku form

Please be seated dear,
Sit beneath the stars with me,
welcome summer's eve.

Each poet, in their heart,
Dreams of such an eve, moments,
Which they might spill ink.

Tonight I'm without,
A single tear in my pen,
That, I must express.

Without a feather,
Or other methods at hand,
I can't write to you.

Yet my lips are here,
The summer heat is waking,
To intwine our souls.

Please be seated dear,
Sit beneath the stars with me,
welcome summer's eve.

Summer is passion,
Spring's envy and winter his scorn,
Summer is my heart.

My heart is your heart,
Remember that, all is well,
Your heart is mine too.

Expression of love,
Though young, virgin to the touch,
Is my deep desire.

Combine our beauties,
Dance upon my sweetest lips,
And summer my heart.

Please be seated dear,
Sit beneath the stars with me,
welcome summer's eve.

All not saved will be lost.

summer sweetness
"Tonight I'm without,
A single tear in my pen,"

"combine our beauties,
Dance upon my sweetest lips,
And summer my heart."

If I don't read anything else today I'm glad I read these lines. Sweet, sincere, strong and sure. Like this one a lot.

Siah's Senryu Story
Enjoyable read, this first day of Summer.

A suggestion: 2nd verse, "In each poet's heart"... 7th verse, perhaps: "Spring's envy, Winter his scorn," or: Spring's envy and Winter's scorn"...Would keep 5/7/5 form intact. Just suggestion, if that was design.

This reads more as poem or lyric, for me, with verses in a senryulike form. Caps, commas, periods, repeats, etc, ..But that's what makes this place...Freedom.

Repeats of 1st verse, as chorus, gives lyrical feel..A senryu-story-song..Cool!

The story flows like a river...
You have been successful exploring the new frontier of haiku storytelling; I thoroughly enjoyed it! I love romanticism in poetry. Great work!

Oh My!
The title first caught my attention. This is beautiful, beautiful the entire way through. This is the kind of thing that makes you just siiiigh.

Thanks for commenting MS TINK. TO make a woman sigh is always a good thing (at least as it is not out of boredom)
