Shades of Gray: a # haiku 

This week Ronovan gives us the words black and white as our haiku writing prompts. There are plenty of ways to go with these words but only one comes to my mind immediately – shades of gray.

either black or white
we see what we want to see
mainly shades of gray

In our society today it is all about the shades of gray – everything rides in these shadows. But the truth is not all relative as many insist. Almost everything, if we were to be honest to our heritage, comes back to black or white, dark or light, good or evil, of God or of the devil. Yeah. It really is that simple: there’s no fence to straddle, you have to choose a side.

Romans 12:2 “Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect.”
