I am a writer of poetry and fiction. I especially love flash fiction. My name is Ruby, and I live in Southern Illinois. I am a retired R.N.

Finger misbehaving

Say, " What "?

Tiger on the green swinging high

Crowd cheering as ball almost reaches the sky

The crowd whispers in disbelief

Ball in coral reef

Camera captures Tiger giving the third finger hi-five

Please let me interject, I love Tiger, and i hope he regains his God given skill. He is the best..

      Hello Ricky, Please forgive me for missing your comment. I soo agree with you. I think karma is hanging on his club, maybe he can shake it off. I am a BIG golf fan and Tiger has thrilled me many times with his impossible shots. Thank you my friend..

      Hi ImKarn23, I know what you are saying is true. I have been a fan since he started playing and it really hurt me when he cheated on his wife. He paid dearly, losing his family. I'm glad you left a comment and i do understand..Cheers

      Good job! :-) deserves a reward:

      Was out playing golf just for fun

      With Father O’Toole in the sun

      When club from hand burst

      Hit priest as he cursed

      And he hit his first holy one

      Hello Bill, I watched the PGA tournament all week and was cheering Tiger on, but he lost his confidence. Made me so sad. He'll get it back and i'll be right there cheering him on. Thank you..Cheers

      Up, funny, and awesome Ruby. LOL This was great. Poor Tiger has lost his stripes! I wish he would capture that past glory. He is and will always be the reason that I watch golf. I do wish him well. I want to see him win a major, but Karma is a "bitty." Great work as always dear Ruby. Take care AE

      Sport limerick poetry. I think you have something here. Now if he could hit the ball down the line, it would be much easier to continue to rhyme
