My first Haiku

Trying to revive Wonder Woman




Treading the Fence Top


That Divides the Wolves from Bears


Sensing her pain



The Fence Top Narrows


Even as it Grows Longer


Options Fade Away



Frozen by Conflict


Appearing Apathetic


Her Pain Continues



The Fence Nears its End


No Room Left to Maneuver


Gravity Prevails




Destiny Will Choose


For Those Who Do Not Decide


Wolves and Bears Will Feast



Treading the Fence Top


Eliminates the Choices


That Make Life Our Own

Better to choose our own destiny than to wait and wait and wait and see what else transpires. Sometimes, life is what happens while we're making other plans (so said John Lennon). Welcome to the den! Great place to hang out with the pack.
