Matt Barnes Tribute Haiku Thread

The Orlando Magic officially lost Matt Barnes to free-agency last night, as the journeyman signed with the L.A. Lakers just after 11 PM on the East Coast. Magic fans have had a few days to prepare for losing Barnes, whom they grew to love during his lone season in pinstripes, but he's gone for good now.

So if you're looking for a way to cope, I humbly suggest writing a haiku tribute to Barnes in the comments section of this post; if this idea sounds familiar, it should, because Sactown Royalty did it earlier this week to say farewell to Jon Brockman. Rec your favorite contributions. I'll make a separate post highlighting the very best haiku selections later this weekend. And though I can't make any guarantees, I will do my best to make sure Barnes' representatives see that post.

Barnes showed Magic fans some love earlier this week. If you'd like to return the favor, creatively, here's the space to do it.
