a bang or a shout
shaped everything we are now–
was it god or chance?
Well that’s a big question for a Friday afternoon!
LOL, it is–a much better one would be–wanna party?
There’s a question whose answer is never a mystery.
Personally, we all are who we are because of the past. The past has brought us here and all that matters now is what will we do with the remaining time we have in this world? Oh how thought provoking!!
I’m with you on that, Crystal!
God or chance? something to think about 🙂
🙂 yes–getting coffee so my mind works.
Aren’t God and chance same..? Just a question….I loved the haiku..and hope coffee was real good and yummie….. RS:)
Hmmm. I am much, much more traditional than that–but what seems like chance to us might be a plan to god–who knows? Not me! Got myself some iced mocha cappuccino. Yum!
I’m still wondering…
Oh, thank you. We as a species have been wondering for a while 😉
Susan I truly love your work. In my heart I chose to believe it was the hand of God.
Melanie–thank you so much! I chose the path of belief myself, or it chose me…
I had to read the comments, curiosity and all that. But my answer is a very strong Heavenly Father all the way! Loved your haiku, and I am very pleased to meat you. Rhonda sent me by, and I’m so glad she did. From the few I’ve skimmed so far, I’m already a fan. I’m Kyla. 🙂
Kyla–Hi–nice to meet you & thanks so much for the follow!
Isn’t God the provider of chance? Doesn’t chance come from God? Just some thoughts… very nice and thought provoking haiku!
Thank you Syed–yes he is–but the syllables didn’t fit 😉
Ah… the age old question posed with your creative pen!! Another good one, Susan! Love the first line!!!
Oh, Barbara–thank you!
That’s the question, isn’t it? Well done.
I almost read was it good or was it chance 🙂
The age old question – well done.
way to pack a punch in such few words Susan!
Thanks, my friend 😉
The everlasting discussion on creation caught in a few words … great haiku.
Thanks so much–glad you liked it.
No chance it wasn’t God!
Great haiku – enjoyed!
Yep–it was Him. Glad you liked!
all good things derive from the Father of lights!
Yes they do!
God’s chance or… chance was God.
Very well penned.
😉 thanks! Glad you liked!
nice haiku, and I merely comment that the mathematical chances of this happening again are – Orange
Fantastic comment, Bruce!
God worked out the chances appropriately to each one. Some get more,others less and some not at all. Nice thoughts Susan!
Thanks, Hank. Glad you enjoyed.
Is there some mischief in the first verse or am I being too freudian in my reading? Hmmmm? bang? shout? 🙂 Great haiku. My take – Let me quote Albert Einstein – God doesn’t play dice with the world! So, no chance it was chance!
Oh, I am in agreement with you and Mr. E on that. Hee, hee–maybe a wee bit of mischief–I don’t analyze ’em, I just write ’em and think about the deeper psychological ramifications later 😉
Big Bang theory question again!
yes! The eternal question.
Or did somebody just slam a door shut? 🙂
…have I mentioned before I just adore the way your mind works?
Likewise, Susan! You are a real challenge to me. 🙂
Thanks, Ken–I am a real challenge to myself, sometimes 🙂
Now that depends on how we define ‘God’. 🙂
Yes, it very much does. Left it open to interpretation 😉
I feel it’s God….coz God is the source of chance….Wonderful haiku!
Ripple of thoughts
oh, thanking you. Feel that it is God, too!
A million dollar question! My answer is God. A fine thought provoking Haiku
We have the same answer 😉
Glad you liked!
