Ylang Ylang in Haiku

Recently I read a beautiful Haiku about rain. Since I was raised outside of Seattle it took me not only back to the land of my upbringing, but to my 5th grade english lesson where we learned the art of haiku.  It is a really beautiful way to communicate, and since I need to  flex my writing muscles, I decided to give it a shot.

Ylang Ylang is an extremely sensual oil that has been known throughout history as an aphrodisiac.  The love that comes from this oil is not only about love with another person but also about love for yourself.  It relieves internal dialogue that may not serve you at any given time.  I find that sometimes without thinking of these qualities I reach for it and put some on, only to realize that it was exactly what I needed.

Let me know what you think and if you would like to see more Haiku’s
