HAIKU: RESPONSE TO ONE DEEP BREATH PROMPT OF 3-06-07

"the black earth/under my fingernails/tending houseplants."


This week's prompt at One Deep Breath was to think about mud, dirt, earth. Which seems quite appropriate as our earth begins to thaw -- at least in the northern hemisphere (but certainly not last night with 0 degree windchill!).

Please vist One Deep Breath to see the full prompt and view others' creative responses to it. The image above is a unique version of The Three of Cups in The Tarot, by Connie Maria Plieger. (For comparison, see my previous post for a more traditional version of The Three of Cups.)

‘til next time, keep dreaming,

I love the feel of dirt in my hands. Your haiku and the image made a lovely team.

Quite a few of us have referred to dirt beneath our nails. I think however clean we are we secretly love the sense of connection to the earth it gives us.

Oh, yes, jem, I agree compltely. It is also a sort of "rebellion," at least for me, to let my nails be gloriously dirty! :-D

Slendid! It will take days to get the dirt from under the nails ;)

For sure, getzapped, if gardening were not so much fun and plants such wonderful creatures, I'd not want to go through the clean up scrub!

I like your collection of quotes.

Glad you like the Tarot card image, Remiman. I don't even remember how long I've had it in my image files, waiting for just the right place to use it. :-)

Thanks, Sandy. I collect quotes the way I collect Tarot decks. I've always blamed my collecting tendency on my Moon in Taurus.:-)
