dVerse Poets Pub : Open Link Night, Week 55
hosted by Hedgewitch (joy ann jones)
who “did have to wash the adjective confetti out of the beer steins” from the last open link night 😉 so you can tell, it gets fairly festive around there 😉
she offers some interesting information on, (she guesses) her fourth or fifth reading of “lord of the rings” – i found it very interesting!
and ends with this take from her readings,
“In the end, that’s why we’re drawn to write, I think, to chronicle, in our own ways, the adventures and tales of our lives and worlds that matter, so they won’t be forgotten, and like the characters in them, it really isn’t something we choose–it’s just the job we know we must do, and we can’t turn back if we want to do it right.”
the selection of readings from participating poets is always interesting, and one doesn’t need to have submitted to enjoy and/or comment on the works offered on each poet’s site
hope you get a chance to check it out
meanwhile, i offer a rare rhyming poem from the mid 90s, part of a collection of seven volleyball poems in my ebook “101 sports poems“
just saw a great duo team match last night with my wife as the olympics in london slosh on (as per the media)
made us both feel so good, i had to post something fun 😉
i hope you enjoy!
Twas the last play
of the game when all
the players’ feet were
tired and lame.
The ball rose over the net
high and free letting
everyone get set.
One last kill was all
that was needed but
the coach’s last words
the other team should’ve heeded:
“Support the weak link.
Watch the diggers.
Watch the setters
and watch for the dink.”
