the old man and
his cracked tea cup

    sudden nightfall
    his empty bottle
    of Viagra

    Staring...
    a tear drop falls suddenly
    in the tea cup

    cold evening-
    embers amidst ashes
    things i did, and did not do

    explored thighs
    an uncovered book
    with love story

    Autumn leaves kiss earth;
    The old woman still tightens
    Softly thinning lips.

    dirk, i'm reminded of the old woman who held my hand, one nondescript evening...
    so surprisingly soft, were her's


    and sensual

    I like your poem...

    pious women
    kneading bread
    the old country

    late sunset
    an old man's talking
    wine and women

    Great lines Aurora_!
    Differing comments... differing perceptions.

    Expiration dates: daylight, tea cups, and old men... like me.
    Sip all you can... while it lasts.

    writing haiku-
    lips returning to,
    cool...cool coffee

    wintry clouds
    on thermal winds...
    'gainst the sky
    raptorial shadow

    Lacy curtains swell
    in the warm night breeze;
    I remember you well.

    the two of us
    one shadow

    late fall
    a tea leaf dries
    in the cup

    cricket's chirp--
    night for reading
    her letter filled with hearts, moons, and stars
