“True individual freedom cannot exist without economic security and independence. People who are hungry and out of a job are the stuff of which dictatorships are made.”

The fear surfaces

Amongst my positive thoughts

What is happening?


Economy failed?

Who really understands this

Rhetoric is heard


I believed in self

Experience and my drive

Don’t seem to matter


A great depression

Is that on the horizon?

I don’t know what to think

“I feel there are two people inside me – me and my intuition. If I go against her, she’ll screw me every time, and if I follow her, we get along quite nicely.”


  1. This is an amazing shot of the sky. I love how the clouds look as though they’re swirling around the sun. Nicely captured!!! 🙂

    I’m looking at the sky here.

  2. You need to think positive. Even the great depression came and went. We will survive. I love your sky watch photo.

  6. Well when you need to have your spirits lifted I suggest you come back to this spot here. It’s so beautiful. These are tough times and I know we will all get through them in different ways and with different struggles. I hope that through it all we become people who depend on God more and the government less. I just wanted you to know too, that God keeps bringing you and your family to my mind when I ask Him “Who should I be praying for today, Lord?” I pray that He shows you in small and big ways that He loves you and your family.

  7. I think you have expressed with your haiku this week what many of us have been thinking and feeling. The stress of worrying can be pretty fierce at times. Hang in there, things are gonna get better!

  10. Beautiful photo!

  11. I am confident we have the right leader at the helm and that change will come. He has quite a mess to clean up.

    I like this photo very much, Vixen. God bless.

  12. I came back to tell you my first thought when I read the Word Verification “abluet” was the same as yours! hahaha! And I’m glad I came back because I can see the photo now – the beach scene looks especially inviting right now – I’m freezing!

  13. These are spooky times indeed, but I keep thinking we will pull through. Your quote at the top is thought provoking and probably very very true.

    Nice Haiku even if about a sad subject.
