Poetry Stories

As William Wordsworth said, poetry is β€œthe spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings.” Indeed, poetry employs rhythm, language, rhetorical devices, and figures of speech to convey an imaginative, emotional experience. Poetry contrasts with prose, or everyday writing, and often uses elaborate diction and figurative language which conceals deeper meaning.

Excepting five or six, all of these haiku are about lips and kissing. Some Haiku for you, lips & a few, sweet, wine-touched kisses, too.
