Fate and Freewill – My Weekly Poem 5/9/2022

Instead of writing about fate or freewill, I cheated and wrote a Haiku about each.

The arrow’s arc traced
the path that had been waiting
since the start of time.
————————————————————————————-
Though it may be true,
I cannot choose the outcome,
I choose my response.

  1. These two haiku work well as a diptych. I imagine them printed on opposing pages, and then, it’s for the reader to make up their mind. I don’t think writers have to provide answers. I do think, however, that we should come up with interesting questions. Well played, Brian.

    1. Thank you for your comment and appreciation. Diptych is a new term for me, and I see what you mean by these working in that type of view. Giving the reader just enough to start to fill in and solve themselves is a poetic goal for sure.
