Not So Light Haiku

Can’t help wondering
why some who have “seen the light”
keep spreading darkness.

(Written in response to a haiku prompt for the word light.)

    So very true Madeleine, a thought provoking haiku.

  2. Well said. Great use of this prompt.

  3. Well said. I find they spread darkness because once they see the light, they think only they are correct.

    People who see light and spread darkness are evil of all beings

  7. Wonderful and deep Haiku. I often wonder the same thing. I think that they do not walk the talk. Very sad.
