Jay's Saturday Morning Haiku - 6

Jay's Saturday morning haiku - 6

The English form of the traditional Japanese Haiku includes any or all of the following:

  • The use of 17 syllables, in the form of three lines, with 5, 7 and 5 syllables respectively.  Some haiku may employ 10 - 14 syllables, but 17 is traditional.
  • The use of a season in the poem.
  • The use of a "cut word" or punctuation to set off and compare two images.

 


We all hang our heads.

 

It is so hard to save face –

 

When it’s in our hands.

Good Morning, Jay. Maybe one of these years, the Redskins can save face. It won't be this year tho...

Not at all!  And we've been saying that for twenty years Michael.  They don't have a long-term plan.  Without that, every year is just that, a year and if it falls apart there is no fall back.

Glad you do Barbara-Jo.  I wrote another just this morning, on the roach issue!

S&D - had not considered it!  But maybe, if I get enough of these racked up!

The quote makes a lot of sense.  Something to think long and haard about.

Randi - we Redskin fans are all so proud this year!

Ah, Jay!  You nailed it with this one!  They're playing like nuns this year.

I know Pat.  Sure, there have been many injuries to key players, but a team is just that, people in the background able to come in at a moment's notice.

My brother made that jacket for me.  Like it?

Good evening Jay. You are getting pretty good at the Haiku stuff. Now about the Redskins....Yikes! Being from Michigan we are always on the lookout for teams worse than the Lions and this year there are a few.

Randy - our problems started with the "new" owner and have continued ever since.  Detroit has turned it around this year, but they are they not-so-popular bad boys of the league.  That's too bad too.

Hey, Jay!  I included this post in Last Week's Favorites.  Have a great Sunday!

Posted by Patricia Kennedy, Home in the Capital (RLAH Real Estate) over 7 years ago

Thanks Pat!  That's a great jacket, isn't it?

If you look up the definition of self-destruct in the dictionary they just have a picture of the Redskins.  Geez I used to be a diehard fan...now I just hope they don't embarrass themselves.

There is a picture of my jacket Cindy.  But I am STILL a diehard fan.

Jay -- that is a great jacket that your brother made for you.  Too bad it and the Haiku couldn't be more positive (but know how you feel with the Seahawks in our area.)

Steven - I didn't see this until today (12/4) and now it's a week after the Skins visited out there!
