#93 of 365 – 3 Haiku about Loosing and Winning

3 Haiku about Loosing and Winning

  

“after the game”

his dad’s hug felt good

young tears dried, a smile slipped out

even though they lost

 

“where’s my trophy?”

they lost; “but both teams

used to always get trophies!”

he smashed up his room

  

“why bother”

she trained hard and won

but they won’t award trophies

she cried; “why bother?”

    Excellent and perceptive commentary (ies). The first is my favorite because my son ALWAYS played on the losing team…no matter what sport, and I was always there to console him and spring for a chocolate Sundae at Braum’s! I like this haiku so much I wrote a “spinoff” version. Yours is MUCH better, but mine is YOURS if you want it.

    “after losing the game”

    his dad’s hug felt good

    tears dried, a smile popped out through

    his newly chipped tooth

    Warmest Always,

    Ron
