    Sex can, indeed, be quite liberating. I really dig this poem.

    Very evocative; imaginatively sensual. Great poem.

    Wild geese, although often migratory, generally mate for life. So I’m seeing more than a casual romance. Love the rich texture of this haiku. So much in so very few words.

    In a natural history setting very romantic, or if meant as urban slang, something quite different. :-)
