Fate





fate is a leaf thrown
whirling in the wind, falling 
cup of blueberries 

~0~0

fate is a coin tossed
heads or tail on palm, waiting  
yellow cab departs 

~0~0

fate is skin colour 
like orange rind, not the seeds
green watermelon

    I'm sorry, your haiku just made me feel playful this morning. The blueberries look so good. Lovely haiku all around.

    Peace

  23. "a coin tossed" - charming. Beautiful and clever takes of the prompt. All of them charming and to the point, though so varied.
