volleyball: contacts and connects
do not drop.
always look up.

birds with no wings.
legs made of springs.

shields and walls,
no time to fall.

persistent yet sly
jumps up high

trust and threat
eyes waiting to set

You trod
your brow
was ice
and I
felt your
mind and 
knew your
heart and
that was
a sad

Smoked out
your life
your wife
you'll not
have that
fair nor 
dark haired
son to
toss up

I dropped
you there

but as one girl heard the news,
she just wanted to fade
fade like an old bruise

Yet the relevant section,
Escaped his detection,

Fiery red burns
Autumn orange
Army ants learn
How to hog Glen
High winged pigs
Fly blue in tune
Suctioning mouths
Pulling helium

Premium Member Summer Days
Singing birds and laughing children
Summer sounds seep into our senses

Friends, family and neighbors socialize
Backyard shaded lounging chairs
children playing nearby

Summertime sunshine and outdoor adventure
Fishing at dawn...

A cacophony of cheers
Sand sprays like fireworks
From feet, hands, ball, hair.
Four women, two-a-side,
In a battle for the ages.

A motion of fluidity and a
Knowledge brought forth

You enjoy on my pain
Am football,
You kick me I move;
To the direction 
you choose;
Harder you kick 
farther I reach
Yet under your feet;
Made of hide 
Of unfortunate sheep,

Wish that I
Am your friend

I don't know
What went wrong
Find the way

Want to tell

I love you
To come home
Give a chance

People dance
Love and joy
Throughout live

Next to me not
Embalmed but
Stuffed with
Goose down

Holding it close 
To my naked body
I feel no warmth

Hear the bouncing of the balls--
What a sound of merriment they cause when each ball falls!
How they echo, echo, echo,
Inside the gymnasium walls,
Arriving at a...

an exciting pitcher stands
on the baseball mound
summertime sunny
exciting players volleys
