Rosy lips of temptation - A Haiku.


Courtesy

 
Insidious play
Pulls up red skirt more higher
Forcing eyes her way

Alluring gestures
Seductive eye roll, man gapes
Curves of her chassis

Another prey trapped
Rosy lips of temptation
Cashes the young night 






Physical desires have always been one of the greatest temptations i think. Hindu Mythology also quotes the 'Apsaras'(Heavenly damsels) being called upon to disrupt the meditation of the most powerful sages. Then how difficult can it be to divert the minds of most weak-minded youth! Most tend to succumb to the pleasures without giving it a thought rather than search for some meaning, some sanity in their acts, which is really sad.


This Haiku is written for The Heights of Haiku - April 2012. The prompt for today is 'TEMPTATION'

  4. I loved the message, it's really true. The uncontrolled temptations and running behind them, results in big depression too.

  8. Yes, society in USA ~ definitely turns the sexual into negative temptation when ~ intimate relationships can be very sacred and spiritual ~

    1. Thanks a lot Carol... i think this behaviour is not subjected to just USA, even in a comparatively conserved society like India, it prevails, but in secret hiding it from the public eyes.

      Namaste :)
