Textured Touch

Ardent Sun sets down,
Caresses her sleek surface
With his tinted rays.

Zealous touch explores,
Causing blissful shakes, shivers,
Heated, flushed embrace.

Fugitive gaze paints
Fleeting tattoos on wet skin,
Vibrant hues, fading,

As lovers part to rest.

 


Featured photograph answering this week’s photo challenge exploring the theme “texture”. Shot captured on the 20th of July 2017 in Thonon-Les-Bains, France, with an iPhone 5S (HDR Settings).

To enter this week’s photo challenge, I choose a lake picture I captured with the setting sun reflecting its colourful rays on its surface, it makes up for a gorgeous natural painting.

        It’s always interesting to see how others face the haiku syllable challenge.

        1. It is isn’t it? 🙂 To me, it feels like a musical vocabulary challenge. You play with words until you find the right fit.
