laughter runs with them
dishevelled, cross-eyed, giddy
its haphazard way

earth soft under foot
slapstick humour muddying
a motherly smile

kittens and puppies

walking a blind street

broken jar at the table

time to get writing
silence over spiders' webs
these blossoms whisper

I whisper with them
as they speak of future worlds
We decide our fate

we decide our fate
with every choice we make

guck between my toes
soft mud lies on pond bottom
I slowly wade in

I slowly wade in
find only a shallowness
Had hopes for the deep


from the black desert

had hopes for the deep
words floated on the surface
denying me access

Denying me access
there was no future recourse
Beware the surface

2018 Tanka #1

surprises welcome
January hides its gifts
under ice surface
the ground waits to be opened
by seedlings pushing upward 
                          ~~jvg

Tink, in looking through some of your poems, this suddenly grabbed me, causing me to have to reply.

 I personally, love elemental nature greatly! And this poem's idea, with the earth as a present being "opened", breaks through "our" frozen surface too, making us feel more alive and warm.

Ah thank you Liz for commenting on my tanka and welcome once more to PMO.    There are a lot of good poems here, this thread is an interactive thread that allows us to build on other's words.   The first line of my tanka was written by Gatekeeper.   See the haiku above your response, it was also written by Gatekeeper.   His last line is "beware the surface",   Here is my response to his haiku:

2019 #42

Beware the surface,
winter's freeze crystallizes,
ice cracks and shatters
                     ~~jvg

Join the fun and accept the challenge, use my last line "ice cracks and shatters" to begin your own haiku, post it as a reply and someone else will pick up your last line and run with it.  This is the Haiku Train, chugging right along.

Ice cracks and shatters

A bright jar of canned salmon

Smacking the tile floor.

Smacking the tile floor
is more merciful than smacking
the downstairs neighbor.
