961 - Safe and Secure


Haiku Horizons has the prompt “Safe”.


Safe and Secure.

We worry too much—
Safety is an illusion
That’s quickly shattered.


There is no such thing
As a life lived in safety:
The gods laugh at you.


And what price safety?
You can be well protected
But are you alive?

  1. You can be well protected
    But are you alive?

    Safe but more or less a prisoner is not quite the choice!

  2. A good question.
    Life or an existence?

Take your time, look around,
