THE ART OF LIFE [HAIKU POEM]

Updated on October 18, 2011

The art of life. Who can describe?



It dances from good to bad
and brings good and bad things alike.



Thread with caution to reap good.

      A good question. What is the art of life?

      We all have a blank canvas to paint our own masterpiece.

      Are you another Solomon? He was a man of great wisdom. I see the same qualities in you. I love the line, "thread with caution to reap good." Blessings, my friend!

      Your interpertation and use of grammar is remarkable. I have HONESTLY never seen a poet like you that is able collage your words so freely. Your poetry is quite unique and your talent is undeniable. Voted up. Best wishes.

      I was in a New York subway one day and I saw gaffiti that said: "Life is but a contradiction"

      Just below it, another tagger had sprayed "No it's not"

      My Dear Sir James, the understanding of life is defined by individuality. We look at it from different angles. To some good, to others awful. But we must face it. A great comment. It is well appreciated. Bless you
