Haiku: The Butterfly Effect

“It has been said that something as small as the flutter of a butterfly’s wing can ultimately cause a typhoon halfway around the world.” Chaos Theory

Haiku: The Butterfly Effect

Haiku: The Butterfly Effect

We flit, here and there
Change one thing, change everything…
Butterfly effect

We are connected
our flapping wings, your big mouth
Chaos stirs within…

We are all connected because everything around us is energy… we just have to get there in our heads and hearts. This week’s writing challenge spoke to my heart. It was a great exercise on reflection and it stirred something deep inside of me. We move through this world alert or oblivious to the connections we all share. At any moment, our simple actions, our kind or wicked gestures, can lead to good or evil. Which one, is hard to tell. The butterfly effect is a fascinating concept and it gave me food for thought.

“The things that really change the world, according to Chaos theory, are the tiny things. A butterfly flaps its wings in the Amazonian jungle, and subsequently a storm ravages half of Europe.” Neil Gaiman

Haiku: The Butterfly Effect

Our actions move things
Like a ripple in a pond
A slight shift, karma…

Each storm reminds us
Rainbows soothe earth’s darkest hours
One kiss heals our pain

I kept thinking about the slight shifts in the earth that lead to tremors, to earth quakes or even tsunamis. I think about how our actions and our words can lead to the dissolution of marriages and friendships, and even lead nations to war; a simple flap of our big mouth and rockets greet our day. The butterfly flits from here to there innocently spreading floral and fumes of chaos. How does this play out in your life? What triggers that ripple effect around you?

Haiku: Will 25/7 Give Us More Time?

“We must use time wisely and forever realize that the time is always ripe to do right.” Nelson Mandela

Haiku:  Will 25/7 Give Us More Time?

Haiku: Will 25/7 Give Us More Time?

We gained an hour
Twenty-Five Seven won’t do…
Why, you ask? Time flies!

Icarus found out
Our time is ephemeral…
Heaven holds the truth

First I imagined how great it could be. Then I realized what a time suck it might become. If I manage my current time well, I have nothing to worry about. If I don’t then the extra hour wont help me much… Pity really but that’s a fact. We say we need it, and then we abuse it.

“The only reason for time is so that everything doesn’t happen at once.” Albert Einstein

Haiku: Will 25/7 Give Us More Time?

We danced in the street
As If 25/7
Will save us some time…

We took a long ride
And lay waste that extra time.
An hour here, there…

Giving us extra time won’t make much of a difference. Those who manage it well, won’t notice. Those who waste time, will procrastinate. We’ve barely mastered 24/7 so 25/7 won’t make a difference. I say ditch it and let’s figure out how to make the best of the time we already have…. 24/7 all the way.
