creaking open just a crack
 
spilling lantern light

    Great to slip through the door of your haiku to a place I’ve not yet been!

    I was another Googler, but I still like the haiku a lot. It’s good to learn things, but I doubt I can pronounce it!

  8. At first read I thought Tlaquepaque what? I had to search the Internet, but those doors are really awesome and you have caught it in a nice haiku. Thank you for introducing me to this kind of doors.

    I can almost hear the old door opening on rusty hinges as I try to peer behind it to see what is going on in the glow of the lantern! Thanks for sharing this moment with me!

  15. Now that i know, it does create a wonderful, mysterious, inviting image!

  16. had to look up Tlaquepaque … great imagery… I can see those dark city streets were just a lantern make a difference

    Thanks for the learning experience. But even before the lesson, my imagination took me behind a cracked open door where light spilled out, and I found awesome adventures. Your poetry itself is always an open door for the mind to wander.
