Freedom #midnighthiku


Bars are not enough

The mind is not a captive

Except of itself


Beyond the fences

The other side of freedom

May be a prison


To flee or remain

What is right is not revealed

Choice carves the future

    This is both beautiful and evocative, Sue. You can see that’s exactly what this cute rabbit is thinking. I love ‘choice carves the future’ – goose bump-inducing. ❤

    Gate and Hare seem to be having an interesting conversation. Oh, to be a daisy on the wall. 😀
