haiku potluck: horses, baseball, scarecrow

Filed under: pre-06-2006 — David Giacalone @ 4:41 pm

 


Fog in the meadow –

the soft arc of horses’ necks

faintly visible

 

 

 







Rainfall pelts the roof –

smell of fresh pine chips

from the pinto’s empty stall

out!safe!out!safe!theumpandthemanageroneshadow

 

 

 

 







     51 candles

     &

     still this wish

     to

     pitch in yankee

     stadium

 

 

 

 

 

 


withering wind…

the scarecrow’s jacket

          fits

 

 

 

Ed Markwoski

“51 candles” to appear in The Elysian Fields Quarterly.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

absent-minded
I’m the scarecrow’s
replacement

 

 

 

 

 

 

 







 

at evening’s bell
the fields are crowded…
with scarecrows!

flood damage –

strolling 

our new riparian beach

 

 

 

 

 

 

haven’t seen her

in 30 years –

sending one more chaste email

potluck

 


tiny check  Them too sensitive?  Why are Steve Bainbridge and other conservative Catholics so upset

by the negative responses of lefties and the nonbelieving media to the election of Cardinal

Ratzinger to the papacy?  I’d expect a more dignified — not to mention Christ-like — response

from individuals who think Benedict XVI was chosen by the Holy Spirit and possesses The

Truth.  Benedict certainly can take care of himself and doesn’t need his side of the blogosphere

reacting to negative press with their own counter-hissy-fits — not to  mention their own less-

than-objective interpretations of Ratzinger’s pre-papal actions, writings and comments.

 

tiny check Me too Sensitive?  Although Prof. B. didn’t seem to mind, I couldn’t help but feel the  “dagMugS” 

scourge of lookism in Don Hewitt’s op/ed piece in yesterday’s New York Times (“New with Views,”

April 20, 2005)  Hewitt, creator of “60 Minutes,” thinks network news broadcasts could attract

more viewers by “taking a page from the 60 Minutes book and offering some audacious commentary.  

So far so good, but Hewitt then limits the commentator role to ”bright, attractive articulate men and

women.”  That gets this old goat‘s goat.  It’s tough enough being bright and articulate most days. 

Going for “attractive” is going to be a stretch.   On the other hand, this guy got a pretty good slot.

 

tiny check  She’s too busy:  I’m sorry to hear that Marcia Oddi is going to stop posting at her always-interesting

(even to non-Hoosiers) site, The Indiana Law Blog.   Marcia says “I love doing the blog, but it is

taking up far too much of the time that I need to spend: (1) producing income; and (2) finding new

clients for my “information solutions” business. “  I wish Marcia all the best and hope she’ll have

time to be a commentor and visitor at other weblogs.
