Criss Cross

A pitch black echo,
darkness encompasses light---
Paths criss cross.

    I have some sort of dyslexia and I read the title as "Crisis Cross". It didn't spoil the awesomeness of this piece because there is a feeling of much needed urgency during a crisis. I like it.

    Wouldn't it be more a haiku if you took "destination" out; just left it "paths criss sross unknown"?

    I think this may be too many syllables for a Haiku. But, no matter, this was awesome. The message is clear & concise. We've all been in this chapter of our lives. I think the difference is what we do & what we learn when we get there. Great message!
