Love

image from Haiku Challenge, Day 14

Two hearts set ablaze
Seductive and dangerous
Ecstasy, ashes

It's terrific, really quite terrific!

Phew!!!! I'm sweating after this. Excuse me, I'll be back in a 'phew'!

How can just a 'phew' words get the juices flowing?

I'll focus on the ecstasy. We all end as ashes soon enough.
