To keep this thread going...

I'll change up the photograph maybe once every month or two. There were so many amazing responses to this picture, I would love to keep the thread going with new pictures.

Here's the original post:

Liberty compels
Action is inspiration
Even while alone

Responses in Haiku, please.

Proclaim LIBERTY throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof

first attempt at Haiku-Inspired

Nation in need
Needle in haystack
I ask for Liberty

Thomas Jefferson-All tyranny needs to gain a foothold is for people of good conscience to remain silent.

5,7,5...

Needs to be 5,7,5 syllables

Proclaim LIBERTY throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof

Ron Paul, playing for keeps?

Since Rand endorsed Mitt,
Here I sit (with brush fire's lit)
Playing the long game

Inspired

I met a great man
Soft brown eyes spirit on fire
Shook his hand meekly

upward

no one will save you
climb, one hand up, one hand down
you can lift others

Thoughts.....

Alone in this room

My old rump is getting numb

I have got to pee

"I'm Ron Paul." - Ron Paul

You guys are missing out.

I have many good pics of RP. Some of them created by me.







The photo above captures

the feeling of how disappointed we were.

O' land of the free, If Dr.

O' land of the free,

If Dr. Paul's song we'd sing

We'd all be debt free.

"I'm Ron Paul." - Ron Paul

Thanks to everyone for all the fantastic responses...

Wisdom emerges
From a simple haiku thread
Impressive indeed!

Proclaim LIBERTY throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof

Torch of Liberty

Torch of Liberty
Starts as a single lit match
Then ignites dry fields

We all share this eternally evolving present moment- The past and future only exist as inconsequential mental fabrications.

Rand Paul — Patriot,
Enemy of Ruling Scum,
Hence, disqualified.

Feeling Fear? You're living in the future.
Feeling Depressed? You're living in the past.
Who would you be without your story? —Byron Katie

When the desire to bring about a change in you is not there,
the demand to change the world is not there eit

Ron Paul, time traveler?

It can be lonely
Living tomorrow today
Ahead of one's time

She Rings!

Loudly, Liberty Bell peels
A lifelong energy released
Ahh, a quiet moment

Reflection

A quiet moment
When contemplation alone
Fills an empty room

THE OFFER

Ron Paul offered us
freedom, prosperity, peace.
America Reborn.

Feeling Fear? You're living in the future.
Feeling Depressed? You're living in the past.
Who would you be without your story? —Byron Katie

the demand to change the world is not there eit

RAND

Rand Paul, son of Ron,
Working his way to the top.
Chip off the old block.

Feeling Fear? You're living in the future.
Feeling Depressed? You're living in the past.
Who would you be without your story? —Byron Katie

Liberty is a gift.Worthy of

Liberty is a gift.
Worthy of defending!

Alarm Clock

Ernest as ever
One man alone woke millions
Who slumber no more

I snuck a pun in.

Excellent

I think the second line would sound better as

One man woke millions

But hey, it's your Haiku, you can do what you want to do.;)

Conscience does not exist if not exercised

Close but no cigar...

Your suggested line only has 5 syllables, not fitting Haiku structure

Proclaim LIBERTY throughout all the land unto all the inhabitants thereof

My Bad

I should have know better. Thanks.

Seven as the sandwich meat
