Prizes

PhilosophersToday my haiku is from June 24th of my book A Haiku Book of Days for Philosophers, Scientists, and Other Ponderers, one of a 7-book series. The haiku topic for today is “Prizes”:

you are a show-off
because you are a human
hoping for prizes

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.

If you’re interested in the story of how The Haiku Book of Days series came to be, check out my previous blog post here. You can purchase this book on Amazon here.

  1. Show-Off Prize Trophy:
    Unsurprisingly, the prize
    most humans most prize.

    I prize your Friday
    haiku! (Me, just showing off,
    hoping for prizes.)

    1. I’d love to give you a trophy for being such a great haiku-master and regularly sharing here. But would you accept one of my haiku books for free instead? Let me know via private email.
