Three Tiny Tales


Though your life is brief,
you may take a stone in hand
while you are weeping.
~~ ~~ ~~
The geese expose him
as a contemptible fraud—
well his kind they know.
~~ ~~ ~~
Wrestling with his son,
Abraham is short of breath,
yet the knife insists.

  1. Wonderful haiku set MMT! Love the 1st as it insists on solace and salvation. Great!


  2. Very creative haiku! Love first one – true and unexpected…

  3. Tiny yet might the world have been different if Abraham won..not the knife..would our pockets be full of boulders or sand..ow now my head hurts..can we have some cake and tea! 😉

  4. I have just learned recently more than meets the eye about Abraham and Isaac. Abraham was willing to sacrifice his son with the expectation that God would raise him from the dead.

  5. these truly make you think

  6. How beliitled we feel when geese tell the world about us. What some deep thoughts are engendered by your haiku set today. You always delight.

  7. A lovely assortment.

  8. Abraham was the first example of schizophrenia in history. Heard voices to kill his son…God the voice of good intervened and saved Isaac. As far as anyone knows this was Abraham’s only episode of mental disfunction.Moral of the tale..that mental ill health can strike anyone regardless of importance at any time. There should be no stigma. Abraham went on to do great things. A God of goodness would never command a sadistic act of abusive power.Only tyrants do that.

  9. I think you more often than not outdo yourself.. MMT.. lovely haiku all the three.. and then not to find you visiting

    Thanks for the treat of Haiku..


  10. Quite a diverse collection this week. Nicely done.
