I Quote, You 'Ku - Day 21

"True morality consists not in following the well-beaten track, but in finding out the true path for ourselves and in fearlessly following it."

~Mahatma Gandhi

Your challenge is to write a haiku or tanka (or choose one of your previously published works) that has a connection with the themes/feelings/images of the above quote, without just restating what has appeared in the text, to create a haibun. Play around with it and see what you come up with. Enjoy!

  1. dense forest--
    first step leads
    my way

  2. July 21: morality

    the truth lies beyond a dream
    the good
    in us scattered grains

    Gary B

    I want to do all of these but am going modumless again for the week
