Five Haiku Poem: Sharp Petals

I grow sharp petals –

keeping them honed to prevent

love from burgeoning.


Give me lust lilies

and wanton, lecherous buds.

They’re non-invasive.


Like a weed, love creeps –

pervading thoughts and blinding

those who fall down hard.


I stand on my feet –

yanking love vines by their roots

until my yard gleams.


My pristine garden,

like my heart, is clutter-free.

Only gloom blooms here.
