Compost: Philosophical Haiku

Philosophers

The haiku in the series A Haiku Book of Days are arranged by eight seasons and seven themes. For instance, the haiku in the Haiku Book of Days for Philosophers, Scientists, and Other Ponderers exhibit the themes of questions and answers, right and wrong, rationality and thought, the meaning of Life, and others. In this Late Autumn/Almost Winter season they also may have themes corresponding to this time of year and in a person’s life, such as death and ancestors, light and dark, wombs and pregnancy, cold, patience and impatience, waiting and longing, trust and suspicion, and others.

to give without keeping score
for we own nothing
