I haven't seen this contest but I see congratulations are due! I love your haiku, Tom. I've spent much time studying undersea earthquakes and you describe perfectly how they occur and the damage they can do. Awesome writing -- Carolyn

I just hope Earth still exists in a thousand years. We seem hell bent on destroying our planet.

Thank you very much Carolyn, its a facinating subject to study how our earth is constantly changing shape, who knows what it will look like in a thousand years time. Tom.

Nice haiku, Tom: Something we don't think about much, i.e., what's under the waves -- a poet's 'scientific' perspective!...And congrats on your placement in Tania's contest. Competition was stiff, for sure. Welcome back from your travels (?) Best wishes, Gershon

Hi Tom, Mother nature can reap havoc - a force that we can not reckon with - few words, full of meaning, best for a win! Great Haiku Tom. Poetry hugs, Jennifer.

Thank you very much Paul, it must be terryfying to actually see a high wall of water coming towards you, animals can sense them and get very agitated when they approach. Tom.
