Haiku Friday: Delusion

zen gardenHere’s my haiku for today, on the topic of Delusion:

positive thinking:

the delusion that you can

choose reality

It’s Haiku Friday again.  For the past twenty years or so, it has been my practice to write one haiku every day. Every Friday I share a haiku here, about whatever topic I happen to choose.  I invite you to write a haiku on this topic too, and share it with me and the readers of this blog.  Just write it in the Comments below. The only rules are: 1) your haiku must be about the named topic; 2) you must follow the 5-7-5 syllable format; 3) no obscenities or hate (I will delete those).  That’s it.

One thought on “Haiku Friday: Delusion

  1. optimists are not
    deluded by the fact that
    “the glass is broken”

    pessimists are not
    deluded by the fact that
    “the glass is plastic”

    is it delusion
    or confusion that all life
    is an illusion?
