Danger & opportunity—Dragon invite

dragon-1014565_640

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’.

  1. Love the haiku although I don’t think I will take that invite. 😉 I liked what you said about knowing when to listen to your gut feelings and when to face fear in the face. Many don’t have that ability. The quotes are great, especially the first. 🙂 xx
