Poetry Stories

As William Wordsworth said, poetry is “the spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings.” Indeed, poetry employs rhythm, language, rhetorical devices, and figures of speech to convey an imaginative, emotional experience.

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.
