Paths of Wu Wei

Monk under the tree

Monk sits under tree
One with all, meditating
A breeze stirs his thoughts

Assassin in tree
One with all, focussed on monk
Blade moves as the breeze

****
What should happen next?  Their fate is in your hands!

Inspired by Rarasaur’s Prompt for the Promptless this week – Wu Wei

Update

The votes are in!

Branch breaks underfoot
The Assassin flails in vain
Head broken on stone

    I voted for the assassin. Sorry, assassin, but a choice needed to be made. 😉

    I voted monk. Does that make me a bad person? Well, on top of all the other things that already make me a bad person, that is.

    I voted assassin, and was surprised to see that 70% of the votes had gone that way so far. Is that indicative of a society that likes twists in their stories now? Or, is that because we assume the monk is a good guy and the assassin is a bad guy just from those labels?
