“winning” – original sports & inspirational poetry

featured in “101  Sports Poems – The Poems


if the words endure, they do so because they link the links –



In the long long course

of a life fully lived,

the process of

the game

of daily doings,

making a living, loving another,

is ample reward onto itself.


in the short haul, when

you’re down in the mud, a foot

on your face – on your last strike –

down to your last penny or check

 with no credit in sight –

the wind in your face, the seams

pulling apart…well, then –

winning’s a whole

night’s shooting stars

of a lot better.

Final Thoughts

i’ve written another article, also for today, “scarcity and intent in creativity, thoughts” and felt, as the essay is bit involved, the poem would present better on its own page

my bird on a fence photo is used for both postings, and has a much more “involved” meaning once the other article’s also read 😉

but as with most things, at least when dealing with people, that’s us! there’s more than one interpretation and use for most the things we observe, much as we like to think and feel there’s “only one way”


the bird, here, in this instance, in relation to this poem, is simply determining which direction to take, where he’d “win” the most, survival, food, environmental enjoyment

but then, i’m just projecting this onto this cute bird 😉

i do believe, though, ultimately, there is only one way, only that it’s too big or complex or maybe even holy for us to more than grasp at it, though grasp we must 😉

if people perish without a dream, there’s no dream, i believe, without the grasping…

and winning the small doings of each day, is huge…

namaste´- con dios – god be with you
