full moon shooting stars~

ideal night to cast spells~

binding heart too mind~

bittersweet potion complete~

awaits subjects thirsty lips~

*πŸ–€Nina Simone’s voice so sultry. I just had to share this song 😈However if Nina isn’t quite what you like, than try the Eagles, Enjoy! 🌎✌🏻❀️

Roller Coasters (haiku)*

echoes of past heard

~where screaming thrills abounded~

silently decays

*I’ve attached a link to my hometown amusement park from my early childhood. The best thing was that it was in town. Sometimes on weekends my dad would take me, it was exciting no matter how often you went. As I got older we lived close enough that I would ride my bike there. Below is a link which gives you the history of the park. As you will soon see why it held so much fun for me as a child. Enjoy the ride!




Him (tanka)*

loves gaze so intense~

passions flame longs to ignite~

look away one must~

an order to hold control~

calm facade maintained for now

*One of my favorite songs by Jackie Wilson set to a dance routine done by Fred Astaire (whom I crushed on as a young girl watching those old musicals 😁he was so suave, debonair) and the beautiful Rita Hayworth. Enjoy!
