This is absolutely luscious, Grace!
Thanks Mary ~
Oh... I think we should have an erotica prompt sometimes.. you would ace it.. I love it...
If people are not offended and for fun, I would call it, smiles ~ Thanks Bjorn ~
"rain-rippled" = such a lovely, peaceful word droplet. And "silk" as adjective here, wonderful.
Oh how wonderful! When I see "Scarlet" after your name, I know I am in for a real treat. "unfolding petals white & peachrain-rippled, silk with desire" Oh how that makes me sigh deeply and smile.
Beautifully Written, and very lusciously imaginative. :)
Whistles!! So romantic :D
Love the tender, sensual nature of your tanka, Grace/Scarlet. I wouldn't mind trying my hand at some erotica. You would seem the best choice of team member to instruct us on the finer points.
This is very sensuous and so much said with just the right words.

sweet peaches, and makes me long for Spring
Passionate pointed tanka, establishing so much in a confined space/form. I like romantic poetics, that often lapse into erotica. Might be interesting to do at as a Poetics prompt one day--the results might redden our cheeks or increase our heart rate; smile. I'm in if it happens.
Lovely and dreamy... under fog-lit moon... Wonderful, Grace :)
So beautiful. ~That moment when your skin is almost broken open sexually so that seeds of expression burst forth, as if your flesh is fertile soil just waiting to be tended by capable hands ... I feel it. Brilliant metaphor. Also, I think it's interesting that you're blooming under moonlight instead of under sunlight. This speaks to your rarity. A unique sort of flower that doesn't follow predictable laws of nature.
Beautiful and sensuous.... I was wondering why there was so much smoke on your page... (he-he) peace and love1ManView
"silk with desire." That line will linger for awhile... I love the combination. Thanks for this.
You really fill our lives with sensuous imagery and lusty presence, yet elegantly so, love it!
soft and sensual...
Oh to be young again!
This is hot and so sensual
Sensual at play as fingers stray
Yikes ! Scandalous ! "She's a witch ! Burn her !"
I love the intimacy.
One word: Delicious! :)
The use of language here opens up as the poem proceeds - we get sensuous and sensual information pulling us emotionally into the poem and putting ourselves into the scene as characters.
this drew such a beautiful picture...
This is sensuously beautiful Grace! So much can be said in so little, the beauty of a tanka!Hank
Beautiful, delicate, and delicious. I love reading your work.
The fog-lit moon brings winter to mind, and then you turn this to spring with the rest of your luscious verse.
passionate and sensual - just lovely Grace
