She turns to look at

Me with eyes of melted wax

Soft heart pricked in fall.

  1. This is a very interesting haiku, especially with the choice of words. When we think of melted wax, it only stays melted when it is warm. The warm look really has a meaningful impact. Meanwhile, cold looks mean you’re in trouble!! Great job on this one!

  2. I had to contemplate what “eyes of melted wax” could mean for a little bit. And with the title of Desire I began to imaging the heat and soft texture of melting wax. Love how your words can bring such imagery. ๐Ÿ™‚
