Time For Tea - A Haiku Sequence


PROPER GENTLEMAN

“Like what you’re wearing...”
(fur coat with nothing else on) .
“May I take your coat? ”


WHAT DID I SAY?

”Want a cup of tea? ”
“Yes please! ” you say & kiss me.
Things come to the boil!

COME FOR TEA

Sip my Earl Grey tea
gasp as - you undress before me.
Smile: “Now...where were we? ”

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

We are as clouds that veil the midnight moon;
How restlessly they speed, and gleam, and quiver,
Streaking the darkness radiantly!--yet soon
