We seek the unknown –
To try and understand is
Part of our essence!

Notes to this poem…
It is in our human nature to explore to learn and try to understand. When you cease to want to learn anything, you kind of lose your humanity. Learning doesn’t have to be formal here. It could be as informal as gossiping to debate something you don’t understand about somebody. It’s not ideal but it’s still a quest to find out something. If you’re feeling a bit down and such, try learning something you’re interested in. It will bring back some of your humanity and put some life back into your life. You don’t have to do it to succeed. Just give it a try to know is just fine.
The H-series poems comprise of haiku composed while I was not engaged in some activity during which I frequently composed poetry. That is why these are called the Inactive Haiku collection.
