Time (Haiku) - Poem by Herbert Nehrlich 2

Is it the future
or the past we must learn from?
I often wonder.

Does the present draw
from both or from its own strength?
Yes, George, time will tell.

    i love haikus, so simple yet so meaningful.. i believe it is the past we must learn from, if we spend our time calculating and trying to predict the future, we can't allow ourselves to truly just.. live. (Report) Reply
