I Am a Female Redskins Fan #HTTR

August 24, 2013

A lifelong Redskins fan, I have been writing poetry in support of my team!

The only way I can justify watching the games this season, for 3+ hours per week, is to use what I see on the TV to fuel my writing.

This blog post is my directory of Redskins Poems. Each listing is a clickable link that will allow you to view the entire poem.

January 2016 UPDATE: The site where my Redskins poems were originally posted has been shut down. The poems are archived off-line and are being retrieved. As this time-consuming process unfolds, each obsolete link will be replaced. They will remain here and a new message will announce when you can view them. The video is the only link that still works. Enjoy!

POEM 1: I am the Female Redskins Fan [Steelers vs. Redskins]

POEM 2: Redskins vs. Bills – Look at the stats “Listen up ‘Buffalonians'”

POEM 3: Have You Not Been Paying Attention?

POEM 4: Women of Redskins Nation

POEM 5: What? You are a fan of WHO?

POEM 6: Going to a Redskins Game (at RFK)

I posted my video really early in the morning on the day of the Season Opener (Monday, Sept. 9th 2014).

A few hours later, a new follower showed up on my profile:

I am regularly surprised by non-Redskins fans who have taken the time to read and write to me about my poems.

If you think that is amazing, look at this. I didn’t know that my beloved “twin-sister” (from another mister), whom I’ve known since we were very young, was raised in a Cowboys home! She is friendly and loving, she will not harm anyone allied with the Redskins. Her husband is a Redskins fan!

I asked her to share my poems with him, but she shared them with everyone on her Facebook wall!

NaPoWriMo Day 5

April 5, 2013

NaPoWriMo Badge

CHERYL’S CINQUAIN

It’s time.
My purpose calls.
There’s laundry to be done
While words and music wait inside
On pause.

This is the Day 5 Challenge as it appears on napowrimo.net.

“…I challenge you to write a cinquain on this, the fifth day of NaPoWriMo. A cinquain is a poem that employs stanzas with five lines. Each line has a certain number of accented or stressed syllables, and a certain number of overall syllables per line. In the “American” cinquain, a form invented by a woman with the highly unfortunate name of Adelaide Crapsey, the number of stresses per line is 1-2-3-4-1, and the number of syllables is 2-4-6-8-2. So the first line would have two syllables, one stressed and one unstressed. The second line would have four syllables, two of which are stressed, and so on. This kind of accent/syllabic verse can be a bit frustrating at first, but it’s useful for learning to sharpen up your language!”

My daily haiku is below. I decided to post both poetic projects together.

Back yard tidy-up
Preparing for secadas
When will I hear them?
