Haiku of the Day - Spanish Inquisition Style

What do you expect?
Expecting is everything
and nothing at all


They kill marriages
and even fun vacations:
warped expectations


See small miracles
Be more happy when they come
They come anyway


They are not real, yet
they ruin many endings:
flawed expectations


Sometimes they are great
and sometimes dystopian
but never certain


Credences and trusts
Hopes, responsibilities:
Great expectations


I changed these one day
disappointments went away:
my expectations

You had me until "dystopian"! Had to look it up! (I'm an English lit major . . . )
So enjoyed each one, each haiku captured "expectation" so differently - enjoyed them all!
