Discipline haiku

by Paulus the Woodgnome

ianboy's note: Having just been introduced to the subtle and (usually !) gentle art of the "haiku", I thought you might enjoy these brilliant examples by Paulus. This may become a larger feature on the site in future as I explore this new fascination !

I hope you also enjoy these striking and very suggestive Japanese images by Go Mishima I've added (courtesy of Tomeck's Bondage & Fetish Site).

red moon pales to white;
your white cheeks flush
to deepest scarlet

jasmine on night air;
the scent of your sweat
as your hand falls

shaking hands;
the heavy paddle now just a souvenir

becomes please no more;
red blossoms
