Poetry is just the evidence of life. If your life is burning well, poetry is just the ash. Leonard Cohen

image from Haiku Challenge, Day 14

Two hearts set ablaze
Seductive and dangerous
Ecstasy, ashes

This reminds me: I forgot to get my husband a Valentines Day card...oops...think I'll just copy your Haiku on a post-it for him :)
It's terrific, really quite terrific!

Reminds me too much is too bad :) might end up in a heap destroyed in ruins!! Thank you for that wonderful share.

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.
