September heights–creation

a bang or a shout
shaped everything we are now–
was it god or chance?

About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?

    Well that’s a big question for a Friday afternoon!

  2. Crystal says:

    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!!

  3. Green Speck says:

    God or chance? something to think about 🙂

  4. Ramesh Sood says:

    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…
    Wonderful take.

  6. Susan I truly love your work. In my heart I chose to believe it was the hand of God.

    Hi Susan,
    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. 🙂

  8. Isn’t God the provider of chance? Doesn’t chance come from God? Just some thoughts… very nice and thought provoking haiku!

  9. Barbara says:

    Ah… the age old question posed with your creative pen!! Another good one, Susan! Love the first line!!!

  10. Patti says:

    That’s the question, isn’t it? Well done.

  11. brudberg says:

    I almost read was it good or was it chance 🙂

  12. elleceef says:

    The age old question – well done.

  13. unfetteredbs says:

    way to pack a punch in such few words Susan!

  14. The everlasting discussion on creation caught in a few words … great haiku.

  15. No chance it wasn’t God!

    Great haiku – enjoyed!

  16. all good things derive from the Father of lights!

  17. dulcinaandgnome says:

    God’s chance or… chance was God.
    Very well penned.

  18. Bruce Ruston says:

    nice haiku, and I merely comment that the mathematical chances of this happening again are – Orange

  19. kaykuala says:

    God worked out the chances appropriately to each one. Some get more,others less and some not at all. Nice thoughts Susan!


  20. 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 😉

  21. Big Bang theory question again!

  22. Or did somebody just slam a door shut? 🙂

  23. nelle says:

    Now that depends on how we define ‘God’. 🙂

  24. I feel it’s God….coz God is the source of chance….Wonderful haiku!
    Ripple of thoughts

  25. A million dollar question! My answer is God. A fine thought provoking Haiku
