Haiku Poem – 大山猫

white towel waves
dove becomes hawk
go for four

Ben version
しろ しゅきん ふる と たかなる かつ つもり

Michiko version
しろ タオル ふって しょうり の たか と なる

Michiko version
プレイヤー うねる なみ みて たか と なる

Since I ran in a five kilometer race, I received free tickets to a local, professional women’s basketball game. The name of the team is the Lynx. The team is really good and has four players that were on the gold medal winning team for the USA in Rio this summer. The game was a tournament game. To encourage the players to play well, we were all given white towels to waive in the air. Although waiving white flags usually means “surrender,” when we waived the towels and all you could see was white, the team would get very aggressive. In the end, the team won the game. Now, the team is trying to win its fourth championship so they are “going for four.”
