to swim the abyss ...
          dark depths of a sparkling gaze -
     your coy, captive eyes

to touch electric ...
          my fingers find warm welcome -
     your dermal landscape

to kiss hot and sweet ...
          tender chili pepper lips -
     your fiery flavor

to savor and sip ...
          the places hushed and hidden -
     your nectar, luscious

to imbibe you whole ...
          honeyed, sour, tangy, and tart -
     your wine ... drunkens me.

If such haiku takes the tenth place in the contest, I can only bleed out the bile of envy that I did not take the eleventh one) It's outstanding.

Thank you so much, Wayne ... many folks shy away from the sensual, but it is as much a part of the human condition as anything else, and the source of creation and new life. Blessings, my friend! :-)

Your haiku are a delicious sensual delight, Gregory, a feast for the senses so passionately expressed. Your words melt the page (and the reader ;) Best wishes for a win and warmest wishes for you, my friend.. ~Susan

(2) I think the reader's imagination is FAR sexier than any phrasing I can create, so I just like to "set the table", as it were. I'm so pleased you like this one, Dear Poet! :o) <3

What a wonderfully sweet comment, Susan, as per your usual unfailingly kind disposition - thank you so very much for the words of support! This is my favorite genre, though I don't like to get too obvious, (and never graphic) ...
