The Future-Haiku

Nithya Venkat enjoys writing about nature and different aspects of life in the form of poetic verses.

The Future-Haiku

The Future-Haiku

open palms reveal

crisscrossing lines deeply etched

hand of fate to see


feel of the sphere

crystal ball on the table

future predictions


foretelling future

will it won’t it guessing game

Que sera sera


the future is yours

shape it the way you want to

world is in your hands

Thank you, Peggy.

I can almost hear Doris Day singing "Que sera sera, whatever will be, will be, the future's not ours to see, Que sera sera, what will be, will be."

Nice piece of haiku writing!

This is a thought provoking Haku! An old belief was you could tell how long you'd live by the lines in the hand.
