UPDATE TO THOMAS AND LIZ'S HAIKU RENGA CHALLENGE

As of yet, alot of people haven't been paying much attention to our rules. I would like for all future entries to be submitted as a comment here on this text. It is becoming impossible for anyone to know where the challenge is up to. The entries go in a certain order. It all fits together as a single poem in the end. Please pay attention to what you are writing, and have a specific place in mind. Please respond to the previous entry! It is becoming quite confusing for Liz and I to put everything together. It's like a huge puzzle... So, it would just be much easier on us if you could do it like that, please...

I will here put up what we have so far. A haiku is needed next and then a renga, followed by another haiku and then a renga again. And so on and so on...

Oh, and Zoya, we have not forgotten about your other haiku. It will be in the finale compilation. We just haven't found a place for it yet. The finale comilation will also have the names of the contributors. Feel free to enter as many entries as you want. Thank you. :)

Understanding Love
How do you explain this new
found joy to others

I would explain it as an
Aching in my heart no more...

Languishing heartbeats
In a love embrace. Please feel
The rhythm. It's nice...

rhythm swirling to heart's song
two lovers dancing embrace.....

Life in your absence
Is darkening of the sun
In twilights sadness

When you are here, my heart is
No more in such dreadful pain...

when you are not here
my soul is empty and my
whole life is shorter...

calls from your lips for my soul
awake me from the dark night

your voice drops honey
when you call me in the night...
how could i not come?

I'm drawn to you like the bee....
your love's so sweet within me

Like a mist I rise
spreading out over your love
damp with dew's moisture

I breath in the mist of your
love, and warm it with my blood

Love is a poison
That whoever drinks regrets; and
Who does not- regrets!

let me bless my soul with the
elixir from your sweet soul!

the mere thought of her
sends tingles through my body
orgasmic delight

his desire whispers to mine
butterflies flutter inside

It is a bliss so
Beyond what can be compared
To things that are real.

Is this bliss so very real?
I can feel your presence here...

kisses on your lips,
tangible, you are still here.
this bliss is quite real.

The sweet nothings in your ear
Compliment the moon set sky

the sorrows of night
come in whispers across the sky
as you whisper love

I start thinking of your love,
The words we always whisper...

Time fills open space
Thinking infinetly helps
Free crowded ideas

the hours seem too short a time
before we must part my love

heartbeats as carcrash
as flesh motion with lotion
starbursts etched infinite

Eternal lovers love is
Stretched beyond mortal doors

Feel your heart rapture
Her beauty, so elegant
A star shining bright

While I am with you there is
No pain to be felt at all...

Yours oh so sweetly.
Take my hand of love again
Release us from pain.

Let this pain cease to exist
There's no pain while I'm with you.

The pain we do feel
While we are so far apart...
Let that pain be gone.

Let us never again part
Let us stay in this moment.

In this eternal
Moment of love so divine
Let us not depart.

Our love shall eternally
Be within us, keeping peace...
