to storm the chaste
we slowly prepare the plots,
for thirsty readers
hearts yearn for their passion tales
then break in hushed loneliness

Thank you. Apparently not many others do. 🙂 But it was fun to write. It didn’t start out to be this or even a tanka, but my poems rarely ever end up as intended.
I am the same unless I am working a prompt , then I get very focused 💜
WOW, you’ve said a mouthful, Ron. Excellent.
