of a full moon

    after our swim
    the taste of salt
    on your body

    Ah, skinny dipping. I have one somewhere about skinnydipping at a billabong, but I can't locate it, so many thanks for yours!

    pink moon-
    through white lace doily
    breast round yet firm

    I was reminded of you wonderful poem this weekend while reading the summer issue of Ribbons (print-zine for the TSA). There was a tanka of similar topic with your haiku. However, your's is one of the best contemporary haiku I've experienced! Thanks.

    "skinny dip--
    a touch of moonlight
    all she wears,
    but moonlight
    becomes her"
