For April 1
“Now is the Time : 170 Ways to Seize the Moment”
By Patrick Lindsay
Now is the time… to take responsibility.

“No snowflake in an avalanche ever feels responsible.”
Voltaire (Francois-Marie Arouet 1694-1778)

fools

we fool ourselves when
we lose sight of how we can
be responsible

(With quotes by famous folks whose last names start
with the alphabet or at least have those ‘tricky letters’ –
U, Q, X & Y in them)

  1. I really like the quote by Voltaire …. and honestly, in an avalanche, which could ultimately know who was the tipping point? 😉

    sounds like an interesting book as your source …. and then the quotes …. ending off with a poem …. wonderful 🙂

    good luck on the challenge … and remember, it’s about the fun 🙂

        • I created a template. That helps 😉
          I’ve got both this afternoon. Little Miss is napping but Son of Son needs attending – he is coloring at the moment. 🙂

  2. very true words, Jules! so nice to see someone else still posting traditional haiku! (have been told once again recently that modern poets don’t write haiku like this any more!)

    • I suppose being over 50 I am no longer ‘modern’?
      But then I don’t follow all the rules either… So I am far from traditional. 🙂
