Year Ten: Two Score Game for The Horseshoe!


Sure, we'd rather score touchdowns, but even kickers deserve some love when the game is on the line and you're down by 2. And though we don't write our haikus barefoot or injure ourselves in a post-kick celebration, The Horseshoe is just as quirky as Garo Ypremian or any Grammatica. Read on and you'll see!

Football is a game of simple grace and power, grit and glory unleashed in small explosions. It's poetry in motion. Fast forward, that is. The 'Shoe doesn't need pages of stat-crunching analysis to find the essence of the game. 17 weeks. 17 syllables. That's all we need. Beat that, ESPN.

I welcome your submissions.  Haikus are a lot of fun to write.  I am using the 5-7-5 form, meaning the haiku should consist of three lines, the first line being five syllables long, the second being seven syllables, and the third five. My best advice is not to over-think it. My best efforts often come when I just put pen to paper and write!  Submit haiku here
