She turns to look at

Me with eyes of melted wax

Soft heart pricked in fall.

  1. I wonder if everyone is picturing the same thing when they think of eyes of melted wax. In conveys the emotion well, but how we interpret the imagery it’s suggesting would have some degrees of difference. Great poem

  2. 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!

  3. 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. 🙂
