   relying on chance 
trying to find a needle 
   inside a haystack

a well-balanced choice
  a winner or a loser
   you can bet on it

     when tossing a coin
the most probable outcome
  would be heads or tails

     lack of dialogue
increases the probable
   failure of marriage

        waking up early
does not always guarantee
    you’ll see the sun rise

  weighing pros and cons
when faced with a decision
  between right or wrong

    Full of wisdom, Paul. I have to agree that it is very seldom that a coin will land on it's edge. Very well thought out and written, my friend.... Robert.

    that is my relying on chance. Paul, WOW, many of the senryu above, mark the spot, when it comes to reasons, and decisions. However, why must I expect sun, after morning dawn... LOL, I should know better by now.... sending smiles to you my friend... LINDA
