Diva Musing: Haiku

Haiku by Unknown

Measure for measure
Justice weighs good and evil
We get what we give

Measure by measure
We march to mortality
Each soul a set date

Measure by measure
We drink from the cup of life
Full or half empty

Is judgement measured?
To favor the corrupt? pure?
Golden Rule … prevails

Measure what is measurable, and make measurable what is not so.” Galileo Galilei

This haiku, written in response to a daily post prompt, – measure – is a reflection on the delicate balance that rules our lives and how we make choices. It is also drawn from a William Shakespeare play by the same name. The characters are faced with their own flaws and corruption and are forgiven by the King who responds to a heartfelt plea from the beautiful Isabella. We are all flawed and, instead of spending time judging others, we must look within and work on our own issues. We must remember to extend the same measure of kindness we expect from others. While those eager to jockey for power and position might try anything to get their way, we must stay centered on our principles and value human life; do not stay silent in the face of injustice. During this Easter and Passover season, may we find understanding and forgiveness in our hearts. At the end of the day, may the Golden Rule prevail.
