Baseball Stance


Baseball Stance


No gym bars for him,

this big boy on the playground,

intently waiting.

With baseball stance, glove in hand...

eyes, mind only on the ball.

Love Begs Expression

words left unspoken
sealed behind my stubborn lips
love begs expression-
your arms reach out to embrace
my eyes speak the unspoken

Pickup Line For Contest

Never had the courage to say, 
"Hi Beautiful, will you go to bed with me?"
My face would probably get slapped
But as they say in baseball
many strikeouts for a Home Run.

The walking dead

Rushing to nowhere
The dead are lowest on time
For eternity
Self-condemned to walk empty
Though life works differently
