Welcome to this week’s Ligo Haibun Challenge for writers!
Two excellent word prompts to choose from.
My offering entry this week!
I inhale, ecstasy. I exhale, ecstasy. Sensual sweetness of such piercing intensity, I am without expression or thought. Waves consume me. Beyond passion, a place of no name. Beyond sensual fulfillment, an existence of being. Beyond one’s ability to think. A heartbeat of infinity. Sounds without meaning, the aftermath of undiluted potency of pleasure. Whispered words form through parted lips.
I inhale and breathe – you. I exhale and am breathless for want of you. My body desires you. Your taste delicious, your touch I crave. Beyond desire exists rapture of ecstasy, I await your pleasure. Please take me there … now!I await you release me I crave ecstasy’s rapture
Each of the word prompts are compelling and provocative. Let’s see how creative you can be with your written haibun this week. For more information click here! Join this wonderful group of writers from around the word! We welcome you! Don’t forget a couple of things to shoot for: honorable mentions at the end of each month and being included in the first published Ligo Haibun Anthology, later this year!
Once again, outstanding writing this past week, I have read your entries, but with a few connectivity problems with the router for my laptop, I’ve have been offline more than online (in the last few weeks). I look forward to visiting you soon to comment on each of your written works!
Also for those of you who follow Nightlake (one of the judges), she is current busy with a few offline projects and should be returning to host soon. She continues to read your work and be involved as a judge! Check out the other host (Ye Pirate) here!
Okay, everyone your turn, let’s see your written words. Come on you know you want to give this one a try!

How very beautiful! One day, when life stops throwing such major curve-balls my way, I’d quite like to get me some of that ecstasy again – the natural high!
Go for it Freya! You’ll know when, oh boy, do I understand what you’re saying about the curve balls!
I think we all do, at some point. May it be a long time until another one comes your way…
Wonderfully erotic. 🙂
Yes it was LuAnn. Quite to the point in fact. I hope all is going as best as possible dear friend of mine! 🙂 xo
AnElephantCant catch his breath after that!
Wonderful as always, you set the standard once again.
And you may recognise at least 3 of the characters in AnElephant’s humble offering this week.
Looking forward to reading it, of course!!! 🙂 xo

I hope to catch up on some reading today… for both this week and last week too. Thanks for explaining that Nightlake was away. I was concerned.

Mmmm breathtaking and beautiful! Nothing sexier than a woman who is confident in verbalizing her needs/wants.
Yes, I agree with you and probably every man on the planet does too, Anja! (lol)
The read was a bliss. 🙂
Thank you, I guess if I say my pleasure, it could be interpreted wrongly or correctly as the case may be, oh what the heck! 🙂
Yow! There’s a lot sensuality in that very small package !!!
Thank you! I like to take the sensual approach, when I can! We’re alive, we think and we feel and unless a person is a rock, all have desires they keep hidden inside!
Should desires be hidden, I wonder?
Nope! Well I mean there’s a time and a place, but …
Very sensual Penny, and you have to love a woman who ‘craves’.
Thank you Michael, I’ll add that I would feel sorry for the woman who doesn’t!
Precisely Penny. It so helps things to happen.
Your speaking like a true Buddhist. and for that you have my most respects.
I love all this…your words are pure wisdom and delight and harmony. 🙂
Thank you Charlie! 🙂
wow, Penny. You’ve outdone yourself with this. Stunning sensuality, pure and unadulterated.
Hi Celestine, thank you! I was inspired. But I think most women have these feelings inside of them!
Wonderfully-dosed writing Penny, stretched from carefree to humanistic, sensual and communicative. It showed true zest for life and that caring quality of all your words- never about me,me, me. It was seamless to read, as usual, with no flaws that jarr the words…THAT I don’t know how toy do- alot ofpolish I think, or perhaps as natural as it looks!
A little bit of polish, a little bit of life’s experiences and probably a whole lot of journal writing in a similar style would be my guess, thank you for the lovely compliments!
I love the heat of your one Penny. Definitely very sensual
I got an idea for one this week. Definitely going to go and do one
I am very pleased to hear that Alastair, can’t wait to read it my dear friend! xo
Thanks. Will make a start on it once I get home today. A few days away can make a difference
Truly, I do hope to see yours there, Alastair! 🙂
Done 🙂 Not my normal kind of post.
