Haiku – 3 Looks at Court

Judge slams the gavel

It echoes around the court

Verdict has been reached

Her moment to shine

Basketball court falls silent

Final shot goes swish

Tennis ball bouncing

Across the grassy green court

Back and forth it goes

Haiku – Go For It All

Let your passion lead

Good things and positive vibes

Will surely follow

+

I was stumped with the prompt from Haiku Horizons this week, which was lead. I thought about a Haiku for it, but nothing came to mind until I sent out a tweet about Jason Day. In case you don’t know who he is. He is the latest Major winner on the PGA circuit. Not only did he get his first win yesterday (Sunday), but he also broke a record by going 20 under par. If you don’t know his incredible journey just follow the link below this article. It will inspire you.

When Jason Day fell flat on his back at the US Open in June, his head swimming with debilitating vertigo, the first person to help him to his feet was the most important man in his life.

Colin Swatton is much more than just a caddie to the Australian star who broke his major duck with victory at the US PGA Championship at Whistling Straits on Sunday.

Swatton’s support helped his ailing boss complete the US Open at Chambers Bay. Within two months Day fulfilled his golfing potential in brilliant style with a record-breaking major championship score of 20 under par.

To have risen from such a stricken position to the top of the golfing world, reflects the journey Day has taken in life with Swatton as mentor, coach and caddie.

It is little wonder that Day tearfully embraced Swatton immediately after tapping in the putt that gave him a three-shot victory over new world number one Jordan Spieth.

Haiku – White Ball

Aiming for the green

Piercing the competition

Like a sharp needle

+

Jordan Spieth just won The Masters by destroying everyone around him. I honestly don’t watch a lot of golf – never played the game myself – but sometimes I like to watch it. I got hooked this weekend, and I had to Haiku about it today. Did anyone reading this watch The Masters this weekend? I would love to hear your thoughts.

A short story about a man who buys a twenty dollar treadmill and finds out too late that the machine has a taste for blood.

EXP:

“I’m calling about the treadmill.” He was nervous and he didn’t know why, but twenty bucks what a steal.

“The one I posted online.” Screech went the voice.

“That’s the one.”

“Do you have twenty dollars?”

“I do.”

“Is it in your hands?”

“No.”

“Can it be in your hands?”

“Yes, I guess. I need to get my wallet.”

“Get it.”

“Hold on.” Bob went down and got his wallet. He picked up the phone. “It’s in my hand.”

“Thank you for doing business with me. You will find your treadmill in the garage.”

Bob paused for a moment. “Wait, how do you know I have a garage?” The phone line went dead as the money evaporated from his hand. A second later Bob heard a large bang in the garage. Something had just on landed on the floor . . .

Find it here for free for the next 2 days. Happy reading.

Look for my stories to be free for the next couple of weeks and I want your free stories as well.

I plan to start running my stories for free over the next couple of weeks. This is what I hope will be an attempt to capture some readers who need something to read over the holidays and capture readers eager to snatch up free stories for the ebook readers they get as gifts. Most of my stories are thriller and suspense like horror stories. I hope to also capture readers who are a bit run down with all the Christmas stuff and want to read something just a bit different this holiday season.

If want to you can re-blog this on to your site, like it on Facebook, Tweet it out, Google Plus it, whatever. Just get the word out for me if you can.

Feel free to drop your links to your free stories into the comment section below. I will have this post stuck to the front page of my blog for a couple of weeks, so feel free to come by anytime and leave me a link to your stories. Maybe together we can generate some buzz about the writing we so love to share with the world, and if something grabs my attention I might just put up a post about it.

Here is the schedule.
