The novel I'm reading contained a conversation about the Japanese poetry form know as haiku.  So I used the description one character explained to the other.

 

17 sounds (loosely interpreted as syllabels) in 3 phases of 5-7-5.  The subject is nature.

 

The haiku is not interpreted, but opens doors of thought.

 

I wrote this;

 

  phoenix rose

 

sun shined bright

 

dark to soon

 

What door(s) opened for you?

 

As the creator I knew what door I wanted it to open.   I'll share that in several days, but give it a thought and see what door opens.

I can see those doors....well done.   Not the door I had in mind, but that is what haiku does.

Real guess -

 

2015 Mets rose up (phoenix) 

Made playoffs 2015-2016 (shined bright)

Injury plagued 2017 (dark too soon)

 

As I typed this out, it hit me......  Matt Harvey.

Give that man a Macanudo,  I was thinking of the 2015 season only, with the darkness being  blowing a 2 run lead in 9th inning of game 5.

 

The final two games would have been in KC, so the outcome may have been the same anyway. 

 

2016; clinching a WC on the last day is better than losing the WC, but the sun never shined bright.

This may be too easy.

 

A night buzz

 

Skip was in the dark

 

Tears were shed

The sky was empty

 

Tears and fears rampant

 

Smiles came

The haiku is about an event more recent, the last one is further back
