You can't argue with Christine...

... and her haiku:

The finest ash bat
Rizzo steps up to the plate
grip thick with pine tar

Steps into the box,
refastens his batting gloves
adjusts his ball cap

Looks left and then right
adjusts his stance one more time
stares at the pitcher

Daring him to throw
that one pitch, waiting, waiting
bat at the ready

Intensity builds
The pitcher throws to first base
Ritual starts anew.

Thanks Mark. I thought there were lots of great haiku's this past week. I enjoy reading them all.
