Tanka is a form of un-rhymed 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 five stanzas each in the Tanka form.




Pleasure entraps her

Her blindfold heightens her sense

It captivates her

Determined to have its way

It compels her to partake



Pleasure enters her

A cascade of sensations

Sensuous tendrils

Snaking their way into her

Awakens dormant desire



Pleasure explores her

As she let’s go of herself

With her blindfold on

She can feel the sensations

Surging from deep within her



Pleasure enjoys her

Having its way inside her

Inviting her to play

It conspires with her flesh

Offering her inducements



Pleasure explodes her

As she reaches her release

Our bodies glisten

Basking in the summer’s heat

Entwined in each other’s arms
