Is it doing right, or is it the lesson we learned the hard way? I couldn’t decide and went with both in these unrelated haiku:
Twister’s deadly path
Nature, tamed, is just a myth
Moral learned – again
The Swift Survive
Fittest flee, for speed means life
Tiger of Different Stripes
The moral tiger
Respects life and doesn’t kill –
He’s really skinny
I took a few days off from writing as life got busy, but coming back, I was greeted by a challenging prompt at Haiku Heights. Looking at “moral” from two different perspectives, I wrote about a story’s moral, as in avoiding tornadoes! Then with The Swift Survive, I thought about morals with which we might not agree as humans. Extending that thought a little more, it turns out that morals have consequences, even in tigers!
I found Tiger of Different Stripes to be the most fun to write, but each of them holds a unique message. Please let me know which you enjoy most.
