The Golf Architecture Haiku
« on: October 28, 2003, 12:25:31 AM »
Tommy_Naccarato's recent post about original books by our esteemed GCA brethren has inspired me to write my own book.  Regrettably, I'm a little short on time.  Therefore, I think I'll limit my investment to the shortest legitimate literature on the planet: the haiku.

You know--the old 5-syllable, 7-syllable, 5-syllable unrhymed poem designed by the most efficient people on the planet.

Better yet, I should construct the book using the most favored method in academia--serving as editor of far more clever people.  Therefore, I submit to you my book; i.e., the posts following this one!   ;D

Special consideration will be awarded to people designing their haiku unconventionally; e.g., a 7-5-5, rhyming, or invoking the most jibes at fellow GCAers.

(The editor reserves the right to modify your haikus and otherwise make fun of you.)

Okay Carlyle,
I'll bite....

Haiku #1:
Five, Seven and Five,
Just my opening Three,
In the Medal Round.

Haiku #2:
Sun, Rain, Wind, Hail, Snow,
Elemental Golf Daily,
On the Scottish Links.

Haiku #3:
Grooves meet Dimples Hard,
Sphere flies into Hazy Blue,
Green receives Softly.

I could get into this....

Martin
The White River runs dark through the heart of the Town,
Washed the people coal-black from the hole in the ground.

Is Haiku one of them oriental states of mind or acts? I never did trust any of that oriental stuff ever since I heard Hari Kari and Kamakazis were some kind of Godly thing over there in them furin countries. But what the hell, I always can look on the bright side and find the positives in most anything--at least they're population control in a sort of global sense!  ;)

Falling off on sides
Donald Ross built hallowed greens

Sandhills golf is fun

Play 36 Holes

did Haiku Tuesdays
die from lack of oxygen
or lack of Dan King

Cirba delivered
but most of us pretended
amatuers Haiku

It is not easy
to say something about golf
in the Haiku code

oh so like this?

3iron in the wind
land short - bound up to the hole
skyline green, no fear

the Missouri Breaks
wrinkled like the Shar-Pei's neck
land that harkens back

Tempo balance turn to spring
Contact just a click
White orb now distant


Socket or hosel
Instant fear despair big chill
Never is a thrill
