The nature of life,
all life,
Feeds on death.

Small minds, encompass
Small thoughts,
Haiku fits.

Some lack inspiration,
Require,
Inspiration by others.

Truth is fluid, like
Water flows,
Adapts to the world.

The Universe is large,
a mind is small,
The knowledge doesn't fit.

Doc. reading haiku. is for me like an aphorism.
looking it up i did not realize it was 3 lines. And "allusion to nature or the seasons"
is oft forgot in name of poetry on all topics .

If an idea is conveyed on different perspective.
As you succeed at many points.
nice

-----------------
Im stodgy old fart . I posted Shelleys
"Ozymandias"
"My name is Ozymandias, king of kings:
Look on my works, ye Mighty, and despair!"

I like epic tales . Agamemnon and Menelaus.
Hercules. "Mark Antony considered him a personal patron god, as did the emperor Commodus"
Marcus Aurelius Commodus Antoninus Augustus. Who perished by hand of Russel Crow. The Gladiator Maximus decimus Meridius'

Amazing i did not google any of above.. sigh

"Are you not entertained"??

I like 'Ozymandias', 'Stopping by the woods on a snowy evening', and a lot of other poems, especially those by Poe. But I think my favorite is "The Rhyme of the Ancient Mariner".

I can only sustain my own creativity long enough to do a Haiku.

"And your quaint honour turn to dust,
And into ashes all my lust.
The grave's a fine and private place,
But none I think do there embrace."

while ' Andrew Marvell'
is not my cup of tea. he made a good one <above

yeats
Had I the heavens’ embroidered cloths,
Enwrought with golden and silver light,
The blue and the dim and the dark cloths
Of night and light and the half-light,
I would spread the cloths under your feet:
But I, being poor, have only my dreams;
I have spread my dreams under your feet;
Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.

so well used in movie
Equilibrium and so well acted

XXIX.
Myself when young did eagerly frequent
Doctor and Saint, and heard great Argument
About it and about; but evermore
Came out by the same Door as in I went.

Some time ago I used the whole of that in a study group, and one of the participants said it as an expression of despair. I disagreed, and offered this as a better expression of despair,

"Is that all there is, then lets keep dancing"
[open the bar]

THAT is philosophy. feeling.

In the thinking machine thread. it takes thousands of years to reach that point. if ever

“We'll be Friends Forever, won't we, Pooh?' asked Piglet.
Even longer,' Pooh answered.”

There is a symbiosis between art and philosophy, and also between science and philosophy, if anyone would admit it.
