My first Haiku


Trying to revive Wonder Woman

 

ACT 1

 

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

 

ACT 2

 

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

A lesson I've had to learn the hard way, Patrick. Great write!

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.

Well, life is what we make of it, right?? As you so graciously point out, well said....

Be always safe,
Karen
