A Haiku Collection II

Twilight time....

Twilight time has peace.  Reflections on the day come easiest then. Rest is ahead and resolves for the day to come.

A Haiku - Opportunity

Opportunities

abound and surround us now.

Which we choose will count.


A Haiku - Patience

And this too shall pass.

Persistence outlasts trials.

Endure to the end.


A Haiku - Politics

Real and true, or false?

Cleverly mixed together.

Our job is to sift.


A Haiku - Prayer

Prayer fans the God spark.

Communication divine:

Me to Him alone.

A Haiku - Optimism

Past, present, future,

take optimism along.

It speeds the journey.


A Haiku - Parenthood

Worthy examples

most guide our young to safety.

Good memories last.


A Haiku - Peace

Peace, of short supply

due to supply and demand;

precious above price.


A Haiku - Pornography

The obscene defiles,

treating man as beast or less.

"Down Escalator"



Look up and live....

The sky, so cold, so beautiful, so changing.

A Haiku - Preparation

Outset skews the end.

Thought we give defines our course.

Goals set, are goals sought.


A Haiku - Progress

Light in the darkness

calling ship and sailor home.

We move toward the light.


A Haiku - Prophets

God to Man to Men,

Unchangeable God for us.

Where are they found now?

A Haiku - Priorities

Challenges abound,

The great, the small, mixed so well.

First things first, but which?


A Haiku - Procrastination

Knowing and doing

are like then and now,

waiting in the wings.


A Haiku - Turn Again

Once down the wrong path,

Seek again the better way.

Choices still exist.


Let not the sun set while you are still angry.

Tomorrow will have troubles enough of its own.
Tomorrow will have troubles enough of its own. | Source

    What defines a true leader? It isn't just charisma and sensing their power. It isn't just making us afraid so we are mobilized. It's being true, honest, fair, up front, and out front. This Haiku examines leadership.
