I have read this there, through the link at Gillena's :)

i like this, Ralf,
i like it when a haiku is a simple scene from life, and things are left to one's imagination :)

this all hinges around the word 'gently' leading to a number of interpretations

Laure hat gesagt…

yes, the word 'gently' is on point in this haiku, Ralf. as the reader, i want my presence to be equally gentle.

Tikkis hat gesagt…

The word "gentle" makes me thing that the children are teenager ?-)

The word "why" contrary to it?

A crisis?

Masago hat gesagt…

...and there is deep value is staying home; home the center of all that is...

I really like this one Ralf. I love your use of the word gently here!

RBroeker hat gesagt…

Thanks a lot everybody.

@ Tikkis: As well it could be that the situation demands a gentle way of explanation and discussion. In my eyes "why" is the word which has to be filled with life by the reader. It could be a counter-point, but it does not have to be.

Best wishes
Ralf

I like the word 'gently' - it's like a mini version of the adult word of breaking bad news gently.

RBroeker hat gesagt…

Thank you, Jem! And yes, you are right.

Best wishes
