Diana Series

Tanka is a form of unrhymed Japanese poetry, with five sections structured in a 5-7-5-7-7 pattern of syllable similar to the haiku, which follows the more familiar 5 / 7 / 5 pattern. What follows is a vignette in eight stanzas each in the Tanka form.



pearls 11

She enters slowly

Tentative she approaches

Impassive I watch

She tries her best to read me

Uncertainty clouds her mind


Will I accept her

Her thoughts a whirl of conflict

Will I reject her

She knows that this is my test

My approval is the prize


She studies my face

Watching my eyes intently

Windows to my lust

How shall she arouse me now

What performance to enact


Standing before me

Her eyes register resolve

Deftly undone buttons

Lead to garments on the floor

My eyes register consent


Naked before me

Striking a seductive pose

Wearing only pearls

Her tongue glides along her lips

A slow and practiced movement


She lowers herself

With a practiced graceful ease

To kneel before me

Pleasing me with her warm mouth

She seeks to pass this challenge


With skill she kisses

Then teases my growing shaft

Pausing for effect

She gages my reaction

To her pleasure lessons learned


My impassive mask

Yields to the growing pleasure

As my climax nears

She knows she has succeeded

And so she passes this test
