Wigglers crawl up from below

Where are all the fish?

Cleansing winter’s hidden sins

Resurrection dawns.

Emoji, Haiku, Tanka Challenge

I’m issuing a Challenge! I’m starting a new form of Haiku or Tanka, ones that include Emojis. The Emojis are pronounced as what they represent. Why not try one yourself? My example, a Tanka is posted below. Puns are encouraged! I look forward to your entries.

I hear sleet ‘ticking’

Against my dark window panes

Morning, the alarm clock peals

And the kids come EmojiAndroidDragonFace in.
