Table tennis
Isn’t the menace
Didn’t you mention?
Hearts full of toil
Bleeding tendencies of old
Rancid particles
Already hidden astronomical
What is my purpose?
How can I imagine
When I got my mindful
Wonders beyond fathom
Come let’s embrace the world
Volley the ball?

The coach was sarcastic.

To see you struggle through school
The painting on the wall of the little...Read More

As they keep changing.

On my time table.

Waiting, watching to see
Who loses this game.

Most balls people pitch, roll, or fling.
They kick them or strike them with zing.
But for lazy old  me
I like tirelessly. . . 
to stand, flick my wrist and go “ping!”
