Millikin University Bronze Man Haiku Competition


returning to campus
years later . . . the bronze man
still on the same page

Passing the bronze man--
I feel his eyes
staring through me

two friends gossiping
past the bronze man--
he pretends to read

  on the head
of the bronze man--
my first robin

In the spring of 2000 the Global Haiku Tradition class sponsored a special Bronze Man kukai, in which each member of the class submitted a haiku for anonymous judging.

Kukai are haiku competitions in which haiku are entered for anonymous reading and evaluation. Then favorites are born through celebration of their excellence (and the authors claim their recognition).

See the favorite Bronze Man haiku that were born by the Spring 2000 class.

You may enter your own Bronze Man haiku to this web site for consideration in the next round of the competition (which will be completed in the Spring 2002 semester). This is a long term on-going kukai. Deadline is March 1, 2002.
