Wheel of Fortune

Tarot card from the Rider-Waite tarot deck, al...

Fortune, Not by Chance

Spin life’s wheel and choose,
Paths you built with character.
There, your fortune waits.

Lost Fortune

Someone, please decide.
My responsibility,
I’ve given away.

Wishy Washy

Ambiguous wants
Yield unfortunate results
That leave you lacking.

Carpe Diem posted a prompt for haiku related to the Wheel of Fortune.  I took the title and focused on our fortunes.  I don’t put much stock in luck as there isn’t anything we can do about random happenings.  Instead, I like to cheat by hedging my bet.  Prepare yourself by working heard and you’ll essentially make your own luck.  That’s the direction I tried to take with these Senryu.

    You are wiser than the tarot card. Taking responsibility for your own decisions and which path to take…all answers are within you though we may research and ask opinions. Our road to build, indeed.

  5. as Maggie said, very wise… great to read your daile haiku-
