baseball – original poetry
sample poem, featured in –
update notation: 032412:
“baseball” is one of my favorite sports poems and is featured in more than one collection of mine, as it serves so many purposes and interests in my life
though not featured in my upcoming new sports prose-poem work, “10 sports lessons i can smile at now” it adds another layer to recurring episodes of baseball in my life 😉
additionally, i have a followup post, about baseball and my thoughts of how and why it is much more to me than just a game
sports itself has meaning for mean beyond playing for a win, and memories of baseball with my dad and others, mean much to me
summer, the fourth of july, and now the all star game!
it must be baseball 😉
if the words endure, they do so because they link the links –
takes a little guts.
Fast flying pitches
creasing your chest.
Balls hit like rockets
skidding the infield
or launched to the outfield.
like rabbits to
beat the throw.
And then the full count.
Bottom of the ninth.
Like Life, you sometimes
work your way to this
moment of truth.
