The top 3 reasons for divorce,

#1 Money (my mom would say, โ€œWhen money problems walk in the front door, love flies out the window.โ€

#2 Intimacy if your limbo isnโ€™t in sinc eventually you hit

#3 Infidelity The reality is infidelity fundamentally changes your marriage. It erodes trust and leads to a breakdown in communication. Sooner or later, infidelity usually catches up with you which is why it is one of the leading causes of divorce.

Erotic Art (dates back to the Paleolithic Era) as we know is subjective and has always been extremely controversial. What was once taboo in art is now looked upon with a more open minded eye. I refer to Sabari only in relation to contemporary art. Shibari, more correctly known as Kinbaku is an ancient Japanese artistic form of rope bondage that has many styles and uses. It is related in style to other traditional Japanese arts such as Ikebana, Sumi-e (black ink painting) and Chanoyu (the tea ceremony). Among the many uses of Shibari are dynamic living sculpture, shared meditative practice, deep relaxation for flexibility of mind and body, expression of power exchange. This link provides an overview of the photographer and his work

In the Wikipedia article they talk about how Sabari has been used and referenced in music as well, I give you an example in Jonas Brothers video titled Sucker.

TRIGGER WARNING โš ๏ธ to its BDSM nature. In 2014, Romanian singer-songwriter NAVI released a Shibari-themed music video, “Picture Perfect”. The highly controversial video, directed by Marian Nica, was banned by Romanian television for its explicit erotic content. In reality it clearly shows a cultural juxtaposition of a marital relationship.

This is my first poem ever to be published. Iโ€™m overjoyed that one of my haikuโ€˜s was chosen out of so many other wonderful entries for publication at Pure Haiku. Many thanks to Freya Pickard and the artist Elisa Ang whoโ€™s art (shown above) was the inspiration to us all.
