Choosing the road less traveled; now where the hell am I?!
Oh, I just love this. Thirty lips looking for love!
oh that is beautiful... but i cant help but think of the many frogs i have had to kiss in the course of my search.......
Ah, but aren't the frogs merely the desert mirage that keeps us thirsty?
Scott, isn't it just amazing what a writing prompt will generate? Beautiful! :)
..Q:..the road less traveled; now where the hell am I?!Ans:[first things first]On the right track friend!..and your poem is good!
What a beautiful way to convey physical and emotional longing. Wonderful poem.
This is so true. Wouldn't it be a nice thing to have? A kiss of love. Makes me so wistful.
Beautiful. And what of the oases that are optical illusions? So many....Writing in Faith: Poems
Love the phrase "lips are a waste land". Very creative.
Leave it to you to take a simple few words and turn it into such an impact of emotion! Bravo my friend!Jack

Love truly nurishes, be it a tender kiss for a baby or the passionate kiss of a lover.
Your snippets are too beautiful. Enlarge them the same way you have concocted it and there you will find a full fledged poem.congrats.. Keep it up.Who is bothered about political harangue. Do not mar your imagination with such mean thinking.. cheers.. kunjubi
Kunjabi: Thank you, I think. Oasis appears to me as just the right size, though. It seems to have evoked enough to allow people's thoughts to run where they'd wish to. That works for me.Bothered with political harangue? Marring my imagination with mean thinking? I think not. I am of the belief that a poet/writer has a responsibility to record and speak out on what is occurring in society. To not do so is a dereliction of duty as a writer. The last eight years have been ones of wrongheadedness, misguided leadership, pain, suffering, death, and corruption. I must speak to that or I have failed in my pledge to being a writer.
I love your interpretation of the oasis.
Oh the longing here! I absolutely love this.
I don't even know how to express my appreciation for the emotional response this haiku has received. Thanx to all!!
Beautiful and sensual.
Oh, this poem resonates!
