    i’ve read this one more than once – and each time it’s given me a smile!

    Thank you for your attention to this little haiku. It is one that makes me smile as well. Usually, love at first sight, or even lust at first sight, we talk about in terms of “heart throbs,” or the heart throbbing, and so some years ago when a young woman called me to tell me that she woke up with her lips still throbbing, I just had to jot it down in my notebook.
