Sensuous

unfold
from verdant bud
petals’ shy revealing
blushing at the sun’s warm kisses
the hidden nectar, a sweet seduction
to hungry dance of birds and bees
sensuous, you make seed
so new life may
unfold

    1. Thank you, Keith! It was my first go at Rictameter Verse. It feels “addictive” to me the way that haiku and tanka do. I will probably be crafting more of these in the future. Have a great day, my friend!😊

      1. It is part of what I love about the blogging community. I only learned about Rictameter Verse, because you took the time to explain it and post some beautiful examples of it. It’s like getting a new toy to play with…Lol

      1. Well, they are 27-9 for the season, a .750 winning pct. They must play with that intensity you talk about often! I did watch them for part of their game the other night. I played basketball in high school, but that was a very long time ago. And we weren’t very good…
        Oh well!

        🙂

      1. I have been recently more adventurous with new styles and still learning my way, but I loved this very much, but some styles are as you say more addictive than others, your words flowed and rolled on my tongue, sweet doesn’t even begin to describe it. Thanks Tanya! – Gina

      2. Well, thank you, Gina! That’s very sweet of you. I loved this form. Because you start and end with the same two syllables, you have to connect the beginning to the end. That’s challenging and great fun. I’m going to play with it some more. It’s like a new toy in the toy box! I’m loving your blog, btw! Your writing is wonderful, and I appreciate the positive and supportive attitude you bring to the blogging community. It’s inspiring!

      3. Thank you for the kind words and warmth! Oh that’s how it goes with the syllables, no wonder it rolls like a luscious pineapple lump candy! Love playing with new toys, what a lovely description about writing! I am still new at all this, still the baby among the giants!

    1. Thank you so much! It means a lot to me that you thought of me. I’m not current participating in awards due to lack of time, but I really appreciate the thought. Congratulations on the nomination on your blog!
