Random Beauty – Līgo Haibun Challenge

This week, I have decided to dip another toe in the world of the haibun – a piece of prose followed by a haiku poem. The Līgo Haibun Challenge is hosted by Penny, Ye Pirate and Nightlake – why not take a trip to their blogs to find out more?

This week’s two alternative prompts are photos – I have chosen the one below.

– Random Beauty –

A long, winding path. No matter how far along I tread, no matter how I crane my neck and squint into the distance, I can never quite manage to see what lies ahead.

Uncertainty. That is our destiny. The not-knowing, the random, the accidental. These are life’s greatest gifts. They are our freedom, if we care to open our eyes to their possibilities. There is no wrong choice, just a different result. Life still continues, whilst we still breathe.

roll your dice and smile
open hearts and all possible
outcomes can be yours

  1. Lovely Freya. I am reminded of walking in the Blue Mountains when I see this photo. I like the idea you have of destination .

  2. That was a succinct and lovely message, in haibun style. And positive too, which gave it nice reinforcement. You followed the theme very nicely. The picture is from the Alps, France. Please keep dipping Freya, I really enjoy reading your haibun…

  3. your haibun captures the struggles we face – uncertainties and adventures. and yet, keeping a smile on our face. i love your offering. ♥

  4. There is a lot in a few words here. I really like the idea of uncertainty you associated with the photo and the haiku is just great.

  5. Life is indeed full of ‘light and shade’ – Though some may tell you there are many shades of grey. I think we just need to look as far as we can while being content and enjoy life’s ride.

    Dice will tumble, and so will we. We just have to get up more times than we fall. 🙂
    Thanks for your visits.
