Matter's Illusion

Matter's eternal Not created nor destroyed Endlessly it is. Molecules combined Created life's illusion Serving no purpose Life makes no matter The burden of conscious thought purpose ever sought

Joe, we are all burdened by "conscious thought" as we try to sort through life's illusion. Indeed, matter is eternal but our thoughts seem fleeting. Well said, my friend. Love, Carolyn

HI, Joe, thanks for your sweet comment on my poem today. Of these, the first one is my favorite. I enjoyed the double meaning of Matter that was employed when you said Life makes no matter in the third one. NO matter about the matter! An interesting haiku string!

These are three decently written haiku. In the first line of your second entry, your word "molocules" is correctly spelled "molecules". Everything else looks fine.
