Variations on a Theme

simply holding each other;
making love
breath on neck

simply holding each other;
making love
hidden spring

simply holding each other;
making love
moonlit sea

simply holding each other;
making love
howling wind

simply holding each other;
making love
net of stars

This poem was written when thinking about how its possible to make love without the act of intercourse, that the intimacy of sexuallity can be shared simply by holding each other and being present with our lover and that this gesture, this expression can be more meaningful and heartfelt than “making love”

This intimacy takes place in a context and the variations on this haiku are an attempt to look at them in different contexts.

  1. Nice one, love the various different ways of ending it. Beautiful concept too, and I agree, something like “holding hands” can also be more intimate than sex
