Serpent wings rise up,
nostrils flare, lethal teeth grin,
A dragon invite.
There is a close relationship between danger, fear, courage, and opportunity. I can’t say I’ve mastered the balance, but I ‘know’ there is a time to listen to fear signals and a time to proceed into danger with courage. I enjoy these quotes on the topic:
Dangers bring fears, and fears more dangers bring.
∼ Richard Baxter, English clergyman, 1615-1691
When written in Chinese, the word ‘crisis’ is composed of two characters. One represents danger and the other represents opportunity.
∼ John F. Kennedy
Thank you to Ronovan of RonovanWrites and his guest prompter, Miss E, for this week’s haiku challenge words: ‘dragon’ and ‘invite’.
