Haiku Island Love Sonnet

stealing island sex
hidden behind the ferns
and the rare hibiscus

our hemp hammock swings
between two curved coco palms
short steps from the sand

the blue water breeze
caresses us like magic silk
pulled over naked

strangers locked into
a single rhythm of wind
love and gentle waves

I remember you
were as lonely as I

    Nice memoir piece… lush without being lascivious, just the right amount of mystique.

    Yes, the last two lines really alter it, I liked it, particularly how the ‘swings’ gives it momentum.
