Weakest Link – Haibun Monday


This challenge made me think about teamwork and how in some industries the strength of the team is key to success.    If one person on the team is weak then the chain can easily be broken and a collapse of service is inevitable.


Like links in a chain

Strength is in the weakest link

Knowing it is there

In response to D’Verse Poets Haibun Monday – Murmuration

The challenge is to perceive the qualities of the group, and to distinguish what makes an individ​ual member of that group both a part of it and apart from it. What sets or groups can you observe directly or in your imagination? Aim for clarity and simplicity in your language.

    Good point about those weak chains. Each one has to be strong enough.
