Softball Haiku Contest

We recently held a Softball Haiku contest on our Facebook page, so I thought I’d post the entries here. The winner will receive a custom engraved softball with their name and poem, plus the title of Durham Softball Haiku Champion! Thanks to everyone who participated!

Lila #1

Softball Sundays are
Always fun. Hear the bat crack
And watch the ball fly

Lila #2

Watch them swing the bat
There’s a crack and the ball flies
Run the bases, Go!!!


Hot humid we play
Help the charity today
Play softball all day


Bull City Softball
Hit the ball, round the bases
Charity wins! BEER!!


Bases and count: full.
Smell of leather, caked in dirt,
Glory in a swing

Samantha (WINNER!)

Two by nine we dance,
through fields of chalk and diamonds,
we’ll find our way home


Hear the ball go crack.
See the bat that splits in half.
Cheer and shout: HOMERUN!
