Golf Course of Rhymes, through golf stories linked to golf poetry, is intended to give golfers a different kind of golfing experience. And since most of the poetry was written by previous generations of golfers, the verses also serve as a bridge to link today’s golfers closer to golfing’s past.
I have been using Twitter and Facebook to spread the word about new Posts . But reading Twitter Power by Joel Comm I have learned that announcements aren’t enough.
So I have a new idea. Beginning today I am adding occasional Golf Twines to my Twitter time line. Golf Twines are two line poems that meet Twitter’s 140 character limitation. The two lines can rhyme or not. For example,
To hit a ball both straight and long/Just try to hum a little song. (LSW)
A Wie win/Would be big. (LSW)
(You have to say this one out-loud in a Scottish accent to make it work.)
Some of the Golf Twines will come from the golf poetry I have collected. Often a poem, as a whole, may not work, yet it could have a couple of great lines – a publishable Twine. Other Golf Twines will hopefully come from my “pen.” In keeping with Twitter brevity, attribution , if any, will be by initials, as in the examples. Needless to say, the Twitter site are open for your Golf Twines as well. And if the idea catches on, we might start a community of Golf Twiners.
So let the Golf Twining begin.
