Doc Gooden

feeling the ball
his palm grasp
the knowledge
of spin

specks of decision
fell like a steady rain
eyeing his catcher
they spoke a
silent language

his youthful heart
jumped a pattern
of nervous beats
before imparting
a restful note

readying his stance
his two fingers played
the part so familar

focused with determination
the curve ball breezed
past the determined batter
with a strike

Napowrimo, OneSingleImpression


one single impression no 9: flowering…
photo: pollen, bberzolla, photobucket


seeking seedsĀ breeze bears
disembarking waiting fields
wet rains fetch gravy

gathering brown leaves
heaps of last fall piled high
cycled seasons pass

snow melting reveals
waiting young green early blooms
pallet cold cool earth

warm sunshine arrives
spreading kosmic rays of strength
new birth inhales

appearing perfect
his swing met the fast curve ball
breaking old records
