    Much to be said in these few words. I’ve always loved the tanka form. The idea of conquering our fears….hiding…..ignoring opportunities….If we do these things, we lose so much of our potent selves. Well said. May we all reach out a bit today and reap the benefits of community. 🙂 Thanks for posting to the prompt!

      Thanks for your wonderful words Lillian. Our fears have the ability of bringing out the worst and we easily get swayed by these. So focusing on opportunities is must to live life. Thanks again.

    Fears do seem to ridicule life although it is sometimes hard to get past them.

      Yes they certainly do and it’s quite difficult to overcome them but we must always keep trying. Thanks Frank.
