A Haiku - Value

Updated on February 25, 2015

A Haiku - Value

Match "worth" and "value."

To some they are the same thing.

Value "value" more.


What has real value? A painted masterpiece? A rare stamp or coin? A hand-written letter from a famous person? A one-of-a-kind antique? Is value to you great only if others value the same thing?

"Worth" or "Value"?

The value of some things is their worth.

      For values to be plural, it must be made up of several individual values, such as this value and that value. This haiku could have been written with a last line that would read "Value 'values' more." I think it can stand as it is.

      That's a new one I'll add to my list. I've always said that "sin is like beauty; it's in the eye of the beholder". So value is like beauty; it's in the eye of the beholder. Good stuff, Perspy.

      MizBejabbers - There is one who beholds all, and He taught His son to teach us values we are to emulate. I know you know that, so enough of this idea that each individual sets their own standards (although I acknowledge that God left them free to do so, but not free of righteous judgement for their choices.)
