Life is quite simple,
but we humans insist on
complicating it.
Just a haiku I made up a week ago, based on the Confucius quote, "Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated."

Would have posted it earlier, but internet was out.

I've always felt haikus are too short, but I love it when people write them in such a way that they hold more. This is one of them. It's true, we insist on complicating everything. I enjoyed hearing that as a simple fact. I guess I do like haikus after all. ^^;

:lol: For me, with a current problem of having a form of writer's block which means I have lots of ideas, but can't put together words at all for those ideas, haiku helps solve that conundrum by summing that idea up in a few short words. :)

And thanks for the fave. :)

Makes sense. I have never tried to vent writer's block through haikus. I should try it sometime.

And you're welcome. =)

I guess what they say is true: imitation really is the sincerest form of flattery. Rearranging Confucius's words into a haiku was pretty clever, though.

I think this just may be the best haiku I've ever read- technically they're supposed to be about nature and blah blah blah - sorry to much time in AP English; really, though that's one of my favorite points: That we complicate life SO much, and you just captured that in 17 syllables!

Hey did u by any chance read a confuscious proverb when you wrote this?

I wrote in my artist comments that it was based off a confucius quote. I reworded it in my haiku.
