Thought for the day

The Past:
Essential,
Evanescent,
Enlightening;
A futile dwelling place.

The Future:
Potent,
Possible,
Potential;
An eventual resting place.

The Present:
Fact,
Focus,
Forceful;
A place of power.

The past has gone;
The future beckons;
Nothing exists but now.

    Drat!  You even do poetry/deep thoughts better than I can manage.  I’ll blame it on old age, especially because short term memory is being troublesome this morning.  Oh.  Right.  I was going to agree with you about poetry being very subjective until I saw yours which expresses a basic existential principle in very understandable yet artistic terms.  What to do now?  *Wanders off into the distance scratching his head.*
     
    Peace, Doc

    Think the cynical psychologist has said it all – captured perfectly.

    Hi Colin,
    Thanks for dropping by.
    Now I’m beginning to see why the future never happens, if we’re always stuck in the present.
     
    Enjoy your weekend.

    "What do I know?" you asked in your comment.  In my (possibly biased) opinion, lots.  Especially if you like my haiku.  I will admit to the belief that maybe about 10% are good, but am not convinced that the proverbial roomful of monkeys and typewriters couldn’t do better.  At least they are meaningful to me, and thus have served the purpose I had in mind when writing them.  Thanks for the ego boost, though.  Old people like that.
    Peace, Doc
