My response to the prompt:
Than I have here our Carpe Diem Special, a haiku by our featured haiku-poet, Richard Wright (1908-1960) … he was a forefighter of the Black Americans and in his last years he discovered haiku. He wrote a lot of haiku (more than 4000) and compiled an anthology of his own work with 880 haiku. He is really a great haiku-poet and I am loving his work very much. So let us go on to another wonderful haiku written by him. I have tried to use a haiku which is close to the GW-post earlier in this post. I think I have found a nice one to share here for your inspiration.

A laughing boy holds out his palms
Until they are white.
