Life, so brief and short

Today, I’m writing a haiku for Haiku Horizons, because well, I like to write poetry and I like some variety. 🙂  In week #62 of Haiku Horizons, the word prompt is ‘short’. I decided to write a double haiku for this – two haikus opposing each other.

Life, so brief and short

Life, so brief and short
Why are we busy chasing
Material success

Life, so brief and short
Focus on peace, happiness
Change in perspective

  1. Very wise words and beautifully accomplished 😀

  2. Pretty much sums it up to a tee…life is short so we need to make the most of the life we are given. Lovely collection of haiku.

  3. Interesting! You and I both focused on “life” for the prompt. I like your haiku very much.
