A new Life & Death 10-lines monthly poetry contest!

The rules are simple:

  1. Write a poem for the subject ‘Life & Death’
  2. Maximum number or lines: 10 lines. Ten. Not eleven.
  3. A line may contain a ‘normal’ number of characters, i.e. ~80.
  4. Try to be poetic. Even the slightest honest effort to do so, will gravely improve your work. And remember. Don’t try to imitate a poet. Just think of life and death. And be one!

Send your poem here as a comment, or via email at skakos@hotmail.com or at harmonia-philosophica@hotmail.com. Remember to also send your contact details (these details will not be shared with anyone, they will be used only for the voting stage – see below).

All poems will be published at this page.

A separate voting stage will follow: All participants will vote for the best poem. You are not allowed to vote for your own poem.

Winner will get nothing. Except the public acknowledgment that he or she won the contest.

Happy writing!

Spiros Kakos (or Spyros Kakos or Spyridon Kakos) [Σπύρος Κάκος] is a thinker located in Athens, Greece. He has been the Chief Editor of Harmonia Philosophica since its inception. Spiros has a diploma in Chemical Engineering, an MSc in Advanced Materials' Technology, an MBA in Decisions' Science, a phD in the use of conductive polymers in PCB industry and is still learning. He also worked as a technical advisor and a researcher in the Advanced Materials sector for many years in the past. In his free time he develops software solutions and contributes to the open source community. He is the creator of Huo Chess, one of the smallest micro-chess programs ever that is perfect for educational purposes. He believes that science and religion are two sides of the same coin and is profoundly interested in Religion and Science philosophy, as well as the philosophy of the irrational. His philosophical work is mainly concentrated on an effort to free thinking of "logic" and reconcile all philosophical opinions under the umbrella of the "One" that Parmenides - one of the first thinkers - visualized. Since our thought is dictated by our assumptions, the only way to free it and know cosmos as it is, is to think irrationally and destroy everything we have built. The "Harmonia Philosophica" articles program is the tool that will accomplish that. Life's purpose is to be defeated by greater things. And the most important things in life are illogical. We must fight the dogmatic belief in "logic" if we are to stay humans. We should stop thinking in order to think. Credo quia absurdum! View all posts by skakos
