Carpe Diem Haiku *Amur River*

The Amur River (Амур) is the world’s tenth longest river, forming the border between the Russian Far East and Northeastern China. It is also the place where the Siberia’s black gold – black caviar comes from. Kaluga (a large preadotory sturgeon) is the largest of fish species in the Amur and for the valuable roe it has been hunted to near extinction .

Being one of the strongest aphrodisiacs, black caviar contains a big number of vitamins, minerals and microelements that provide proper metabolism, nourish and strengthen the nerve cells and help to improve sexual performance.

High prices of caviar must not be a surprise to anyone – not only because of its quality but also because of the decreasing population of sturgeons. The largest purchase of caviar in history was made by American musician George Benson – he bought over 3 tons of caviar for the guests of his 50th birthday party and spent 3 million USD. Makes me wonder if they hadn’ t forgotten about using silverware since it is the only metal that doesn’ t worsen the taste of caviar.

taste buds delighted
we savour every moment
night is still young

oozing desire
moist bodies entangled
shudder in pleasure

  1. A idyllic snowy mountain lodge with an open cozy warm fireplace, some Bollinger Recemment Dégorgé, some genuine (and legal) russian Beluga, two czech crystal glasses, two small swedish hand-carved wooden spoons and a lovely girl with eyes deep as forest lakes – dreams can be amazing… 🙂 🙂 😉

    By the way, back to reality – very well written, Ese… 😉


    1. Oh, my…my…those enchanting dreams and the power of words… I must be a touch dizzy from that image of an idyllic mountain scenery… 🙂
      And from back in reality – thank you, Drake! 🙂


  2. Love the thought of that… I actually have had caviar from an aquarium in Florida once.. really really very good.. and they used farmed sturgeon… Might be a possibility to save the sturgeon.. hmm but with the right Champagne.. a bliss…( I wonder if being born with a silverspoon in the mouth has some bearing on this )
