You Too Can Haiku

I’d like to introduce a new feature to the blog – the "You Too Can Haiku" contest.  What’s the prize? Simply the satisfaction of having your haiku prowess acknowledged.  How do you haiku?  Follow the mantra of 5-7-5 – the first line has 5 syllables, the second line has 7 syllables, and the third line has 5 syllables. So Taguchi, being Japanese, would probably insist the haiku have a seasonal reference and be about nature, but I am not so strict. 

Today’s challenge: write a haiku about this photo.  Leave it in a comment below.  The winner will be announced tomorrow morning. 



Listen close my son

“Stuck on the mound with
you”. Molina hums softly,

cuts off Jason’s ear.
