“drill team” – original poetry
featured in “101 Sports Poems – The Poems“
if the words endure, they do so because they link the links –
Discipline. Team work.
The joy of joining in
individual efforts to produce
precision in unison.
Letting the bugs bite
and letting the sting of it
pass without breaking position.
Paying more attention
to your drill team members
than to hecklers or fans or
anything outside the formation.
The click-click step-step
of a properly trained
perfectly honed group
you’re proud to be a part of.

“Drill Team” is included in “101 Sports Poems Vol 2” –
cadences, staccato as they are, are a beat, and develop a rhythm…
what was surprising for me, re-reading today’s poem, was how, back in ’94, i was already linking sound (click-click) with movement (step-step) to “breath-like movement”
but knowing what little i know now, and looking back to then, i see yoga and oneness already working its wonders, without need for training or dogma or gurus
amazing what the folk today, including myself, can now learn with qualified conscientious kind instructors who know safety and anatomy as integral parts of yoga, not something apart…
the members of our drill team back then in high school knew this feeling…
namaste´- con dios – god be with you
