Haiku Carpe Diem #209, Future

Today’s Carpe Diem Haiku prompt is Future.

As Carpe Diem has focused a lot on Tarot this month, I’ve continued the divination theme when considering this prompt…

Fortune Teller

for many
the future becomes
a pastime


what the future holds
beyond your grasp here and now
grab hold of today


whatever will be
Moirai sing in unison
‘que sera sera’

Well that’s the future dealt with. Goodness, is it now already…I must be off. Please say hello below and become a part of my yesterdays.

Smiles, love and laughter

  7. That second haiku is my favorite. In so less words you have defined the future, our future is bright and will pass in an eye-blink.


  8. Love the french in the last one…
