Boethius and Lady Philosophy: Some Haiku


Tapestry of mind –
Her intricate labored cloth
Hand-made, tattered now

Consolation prize?
To find pleasure in forced pain;
Poetic satin

A heavy garment –
Philosophy’s divided
For want or for need?

Words for what have none
Poetry, Philosophy
Together always

Like golden pothos
Propagated, learns to grow
So must intellect.
