Daily Haiku - Scorpion’s Love

daily encouragement written by paul

lion with thorn in paw
shouts joyfully praising mouse
not to be trusted


My son (daughter): May you be cautious about your expectations. Let no one in your life accidentally cause you injury through you expecting good or ill from them implicitly, or from overeagerness for an anticipated reward. Those you do good for will often do you a good turn and become friendly, but do not count on it. May you do good to show that you are good and reflect truth, not for expected favors for those kindnesses may turn toxic. May you be wise and aware not to draw a snake or scorpion into your bosom.
