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.

      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

      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"

      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!

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