Haiku Carpe Diem #164, Leo (The Lion)

Today’s Carpe Diem Haiku prompt continues the zodiac theme with Leo (the lion).

They tell me I’m a Leo, so of course I found the time for three offerings today. It’s for others to judge if they’re mythical or me…

i am not shirking
the world best be on its toes
the lion thinks

I hope you’ll find that, in the main, today’s offerings give reason to pause and are worthy of your time. If not, Hakuna Matata

Smiles, love and laughter.

  2. all three are wonderful
    proud to be a Leo I see

  3. Proud to be a Lion JRB? Wonderful photo’s and awesome haiku. The third is really a masterpiece, with a deeper layer in it. Take a rest … or go on that’s the question. Well … my answer? Going on all the way ’til the end of this Carpe Diem month and further to our next month. 🙂

    Beware the lion
    even when it’s just lyin’
    and I’m not lyin’

    I do like all three and the images. The third one leaves me contemplating which I really love from a haiku. Wise you are!
