Carpe Diem Tanka Splendor #11 fireplace
Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
Today not a very long episode, because of the prompt for today. As I told you in one of our earlier episodes tanka is about love, or has to do with human affairs such as love, sexuality and sensuality. This month we already saw four Tanka Writing Techniques which we can use to create a great tanka. First we had: Mystery and Depth; than we had: Appropriate Statement; the third tanka writing technique was Elegant Beauty and yesterday we had our 4th Technique Conviction of Feeling. Those four Tanka Writing Techniques by Teika we can use for today's prompt fireplace.
Fireplace one of the most romantic places I think. You can lay down in front of the fireplace with your love drinking a glass of wine, eat something and to made love. It is always warm in front of the fireplace and that warmth will turn up the heat for the both of you.
After a long day at work you need to relax together with the one you love. You are looking forward to a nice evening with your love. You put on the fireplace and than the warmth arouses you. One by one you take off your clothes, your skin warmed by the fire, but also your senses start to warm up. After a couple of glasses wine you finally come to the point ...
Well .... enough I would say. Let the fireplace warm you and be one with the love of your life.
sparkles in crystal glasses
temperature is rising
intense French kiss
I hope you are inspired. Let the warmth of the fireplace inspire you and create your tanka.
