A haiku ring for the Giants

Fall’s the best season

When the games mean more, we pay

Closer attention.

Poet, counting out

Iambic championships –

Every other year,

Dreams Ishikawa

Always coming home in that

San Francisco night.

In this harsh world of

Free agency, climate change,

Panda’s farewell looms.

Leaves fall by the bay

Elders hear soft rain, recall

Willie McCovey.

Seventh-game victory

Needs extra syllable:

Madison Bumgarner.

Ten, twelve, now fourteen

Flag will fly in western wind:

Seasons we can keep.

Coda

Oscar Taveras –

Cardinal’s flight helps us see

We’re just kids, playing.
