Sensational Haiku Wednesday: Contemplation

Musing, by Texas sculptor Bobbe Gentry

Musing about life
and the twists and turns of fate
that brought me to you.

In my reverie
I am startled by these tears,
sudden and abrupt.

Continue I must
to ponder upon such things
as choices and chance.

Join the fun!

Choice...or chance?

Sometimes it's hard to tell the difference between the two...

I always like how you can pack so much into so few words. These are so thought provoking. Excellent my friend :)

"Continue I must

choices and chance are puzzling and life changing indeed!

I hope the tears were spun from the past and not the present.

5th sister, your comment in my blog made me think. so when i read your this post of yours, it suddenly made sense. whatever it is you are going through (the need to revisit the past), i hope it is not causing you too much pain.

or better yet, i hope those tears you shed are tears of joy.

if it's causing you sadness, remember that this too shall pass. whatever it is you need to let go of, just bring yourself to LET GO. there is no need to inflict more pain on yourself by looking back.

{{{hugsss}}} for you 5thsister
