Haiku - Courage

How can we be sure,
we creatures at water's edge?
Who will step out first?

The pond's gone solid
while clouds scud across the moon.
A friction-free world.

(Thanks to the women of One Deep Breath
and Mama Says Om for their continuing inspiration.)

Beautiful and deep haiku. So many layers of thought here.
