My contribution to Sunday Scribblings - #99 Passion

Twittering moment,
excitement at its peak
hands folded in unison,
offering prayers

adrenalin pumped up
heartbeat racing fast,
Irresistible temptation
sun peeps out of the dark clouds

not moving a micro inch,
follow every minuscule action
wide open lids with full focus
eyeballs gazing hard and hopeful

a sixer zooms past
way beyond the stands,
Jumping in passion
victorious day for cricket

Oh yes - that's passion! A passion for cricket well written :)

I also wrote a poem for this Sunday's Scribblings :)

I'll admit to not understanding the first thing about cricket. But baseball - that's a different matter. Years ago when the San Francisco Giants wan the pennant (and heard on radio - that's how long ago it was) My mother, the weekly cleaning woman and I joined arms and danced around the living room.

Good take on the prompt, and slyly misleading to begin with.

Somehow it made me sad. Is it what we want in sports?

The slap of leather on willow. Green grass and warm beer under a sunny sky.
Ah, the passion of cricket, indeed.

I too must admit I do not know the game, but I know all too well the passionate love for a sport - for me it is baseball, followed closely by football, but then basketball is not far behind!

So who won the match ... well done, I get it, Oi, Oi, Oi!!!

Linda Jacobs said...

As a sports nut, I really enjoyed and understood this poem!

I also no nothing about cricket. But I still loved the poem.

I lived in England for 6 years and developed an appreciation for Cricket, particularly the International Matches. A lot of passion. And unlike soccer, no hooligans. Enjoyed the poem.
