Feels cool to be a 21st century haiku. Not bothered with others’ frowns, scoffs and sneers. Only concerned with widening some unseen folded petals of their hearts, lips and thighs. Softening their flowing molecules of love, making them feel their secret places… Tender, shy, moist, warm, godly. Half-yearning for the kisses of winsome angels and cuddly toys from their loved ones…
Perhaps another kind of reunion when haikus shed their structural and syllabic chains. Can you see your haikus dancing free, breathing the wonders of rainbow lights emanating from their little brain-toes, brain-fingers? They are juicy with creativity, like newborn Hokkaido cherries, apples, honey drops that make modern haikus sumptuous. Look! Zen masters are salivating. Can’t see their watery tongues? Hidden deep inside? But Zen is smiling on the sweat beads glittering on their foreheads.

We live in two different planes of existence. We travel two different paths within those planes. Our paths cross on both but unite in neither. By day we live in one plane where we work, we provide, we survive. We
