Haiku & Other Poetry, tutto e niente

defying destiny (a tanka)

seeking to avoid

an unchosen destiny

she slips through the gap

like a whisper in the night

a bounded servant no more

I love cemeteries. A recent visit to the historic Oaklawn Cemetery in Tampa inspired thoughts about escaping an unwanted destiny; whether that fate is death or something else is up to the reader to decide.

But, here’s hoping that 2021 offers some respite from 2020.

Thanks also to Linda’s JusJoJan Challenge word (servant) and to Fandango’s FOWC word (avoid) for giving me added fuel for my vague thoughts.
