Love Acknowledgements #haibun

#Haiku Happenings #9: Jude Itakali’s poetic #haibun for Colleen Chesebro’s Weekly #Tanka #Poetry Challenge!

In a different space,
At a different time,
I could have loved you.

Colleen’s ekphrastic photo prompt

The rivers of love
Flow thoughtless and fall reckless
Hidden destinies

She blooms like a rose
Lush, sweet and sensuous
Flirts like an angel; on a night off duty
Her words prick his heart
And desire oozes out against his will
He knows he could love her
That they’d be great together
But each time he blushes…
Then smiles…
And simply walks away

The rivers of love
Splash about with disregard
Tastes of temptation

He smiles like a dream
His eyes dress her in lust
And her heartbeat races each time
She longs to caress and cradle
The sinews and strands that chisel his body
To sate her deepest fantasies
But all she does is look from afar
Never daring
Never risking

The rivers of love
They smoothe the toughest resolves
