Piery's Shore (II)

by Leonard M Hawkes

Right gaze, left gaze, grip.
Kindled blood stokes fleeting fire.
Icy clutch of lust.

This is a superb haiku. The contrast of fire and ice with the image of the "clutch of lust" (near rhymes but not quite -- honoring the haiku form) is effective and powerful.
