My Tanka in The Art of Haiku

Brigitte Bardot
***

Greeting the first rains
after months of soaring heat
the lone rose flutters
little petals to the ground
echoing our first embrace

***

Is it her quietus
that she roars in herself
like a sea
waves upon waves
leaps upon herself?

***

Before the foamy
water could sting her vulva
a jellyfish passed
through the crotch making her shy —
the sea whispered a new song

***

The power goes off
suddenly summer heat chokes
in bed sleepless she turns
undoing a hook or two
of her tight bra

***

The bamboo garden
we picknicked and made love in
is now all concrete —
managing environment
and pollution control
