A Haiku - Quirks

A quirk of fate, or fate itself.

A sudden twist or turn, even an equivocation, a quirk.

When life takes a sudden turn, is it just a quirk?



A twist of fate, no?

A quirk of writers sometimes.

The twist that startles.

    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.

Eiddwen: Brevity is any writer's goal (except perhaps Fidel Castro who has already published the first 1,000 pages of his autobiography which only takes his life into the late 1950s!) The Haiku imposes brevity and makes its poets value not only each word and line, but also each syllable! They are fun to create and I think each Hubber can enjoy creating them as well as reading them. I know I do. Enjoy your weekend, too.

Gypsy Rose Lee: The twist that startles, sometimes causes laughter, or that sudden "ah hah" moment. Epigramman does these so well at the ends of some of his Hubs. It's a special talent he has, from putting the end clearly in mind as he wends his way there.
