touching you softly ~ your back a strummed instrument ~ ready for release — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

En route

on this little path ~ your heart lightly touching mine ~ our minds might take flight — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Soft

your day wears a shirt ~ of pure winter-grey cashmere ~ brushed against my heart — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Ephemeral

I reach out to touch ~ the essence of who you are ~ then you slip away — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa — Photo: Toulouse 2016/06

Oceans of sand

desert of return ~ I swim in your warm embrace ~ touching all the stones — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa — Photo: Namibia 2017/01

Close

standing behind me ~ almost touching in the dark ~ your breath in my hair — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa

Aware

I open my eyes ~ to the silence of your touch ~ just breathing it in — © Lize Bard @ Haiku out of Africa — Photo: Baltic 2016/09
