Look: I am eager to learn stuff I don't know--which requires actively courting and posting smart disagreement.

But as you will understand, I don't like to post things that mischaracterize and are aimed to mislead.

Haiku Wednesday - Pathways

In comments over at The Corner, Hatool posted this quote from Langston Hughes.

I have discovered in life that there are ways of getting almost anywhere you want to go, if you really want to go.

Quite appropriate for today's Haiku theme.



PATHWAYS

I
How can you get to
Your destination if you
Don't know where it is?

 II
 Where are you going?
Is that where you want to be?
Please show me the way.

III
Aimless I wander.
Unknown,  my destination.
But I am not lost.

IV (For Bill G.) 

Could it be that the
Hardest path is what takes you
Where you need to be?




Join the fun!

"How can you get to your destination if you don't know where it is"; well said!

But it's not the destination, is it... it's the journey.

Fabulous haiku :)
