Kismet





to hold on
or let go to fly,
choice, not fate 

~0~0

last two leaves 
cling to branch, waiting  
howling wind   

~0~0

black or white,
kismet rolls the dice,  
ride the wave

  1. I enjoyed today's set of haiku. The last one is my favourite although it's an age old argument which it is - our fate or our choice -. Thank you.

  2. i really like the truth in that first one...fate is easy to blame for our own failings...

  3. A choice one has to make but sometimes it comes to late and they hold on for far to long, wasting time one shouldn't.
