This haiku was first published in Full Count: The Book of Mets Poetry. One of the fun things about haiku is that a writer can cram a lot of imagery into three very short lines, and this piece does just that.
Sun shines on diamond,
two birds on a citrus limb
ball meets bat, a crack!

Who knew there was a book of Mets poetry? I have to own this book!
Right? That’s gotta be an interesting collection — the world according to a Mets fan.
