True World Champions #NaPoWriMo2017 #GloPoWriMo2017

True world champions play sports played by the world

A second effort at today’s ‘sport’ prompt, this time in the form of a monoku – the single-line haiku usually contains fewer than seventeen syllables. A caesura (pause) may be appropriate, dictated by sense or speech rhythm (following the traditional Japanese tradition of a break, and usually little or no punctuation.

Armchair Sportsman #NaPoWriMo2017 #GloPoWriMo2017

TV won’t be coached
No medals for punditry
So much still to give –
If armchair sports really were
I’d be an Olympian

Two thirds of the way through Na/GloPoWriMo 2017 – 20 down, 10 to go. Today’s prompt challenge is to write a poem that incorporates the vocabulary and imagery of a sport or game.

Futurama Wisdom from Philip J. Fry

When you do things right
Grace makes love seem effortless
People won’t be sure
You’ve done anything at all-
Second nature takes first place

written in response to today’s prompt at The Daily Post, drawing inspiration from the ‘Godfellas’ episode of Futurama

“You can’t lose hope when it’s hopeless. You gotta hope more, then put your fingers in your ears and go, “Blah! Blah! Blah! Blah!… “
– Philip J. Fry
