Carpe Diem Haiku *Jen’s “The Scent of Poetry”*

* * *
eager fingertips
brushing along glossy spine
scent of new book

* * *
tea plucker’s basket
filled with morning fog
fragrance of new harvest

* * *
your masculine scent
slowly fleeting from my curves
a sigh of longing

Carpe Diem Haiku *Chiyo-Ni “Morning Glories”*

Haiku poet Chiyo-Ni has written several haiku about Morning Glories and a few of them today are our source of inspiration on Carpe Diem:

* * *
morning glory!
the well bucket-entangled,
I ask for water

* * *
morning glories —
awakened
in the middle of a dream

* * *
morning glory –
the truth is
the flower hates people

* * *
Now it’ s my turn to write haiku, trying to stay close to the same mood and spirit:

* * *
reaching towards
kisses of the sun
morning glory

* * *
silky petals unfold
glistening along the curves
tiny beads of dew

* * *

Friday Fictioneers: 100-Words Story Challenge *A Touch Of Mystery*

My fear of dentists, cemented deep down inside during the years of the Soviet childhood, slowly started to disappear with each new visit to his practice. Like tartar from teeth – step by step until there was nothing left to worry about.
Almost hypnotised I looked at his muscular arms in the tone of warm bronze, admiring how gentle and attentive they turned out to be. An experience to be enjoyed.
There was only one thing that made me wonder – my missing panties after every anesthesia. I kept returning to try to solve this mystery one day…
