    A Beautiful Haiku. Everything begins with why and nothing can be less than why. A Beautiful presentation in three lines that gives the importance of why in our life. Loved reading it. (Report) Reply

    To question is to grow. Thanks, Geetha

    Enjoyed this too (10) .

    If you can forgive my indulgence, here is a sequel:

    Questions start with why
    When, what and how – they all are
    Peepholes that describe

    Very astute! Sometimes peepholes are all the insight we are granted.

    Every thing that starts need to end too, and 'why' shall be the end question too. Great! (Report) Reply

    Because, you think the thing the way it is! (Report) Reply

    That is my definition of reality, Hasan. The way the individual sees it subjectively

    Why is the beginning of progress, thru answers we seek and enter the future.

    Loved the way everything falls into place with just 3 lines.

    Yes, Wisdom, what a priceless gift!

    As I tell my children; question everything.
    Haikus are wisdom in 17 syllables. The Occam's razor of poems.: -)
