Chess Haiku

Comments from my opponent, Raul Groom, in a French Defense correspondence game:

I must comment on the beauty and simplicity
of the French after

1. e4 e6
2. d4 d5
3. e5 c5
4. c3 Nc6

An ideal opening for a Buddhist, perhaps.

One man controls space
His opponent, the tension.
A knight, intrigued, leaps.

78 days down, 77 to go
1091 probs down, 118 to go in Circle One
