I am participating in the March Slice of Life Story Challenge. Thanks to the co-authors of Two Writing Teachers for creating this supportive community.
Yesterday was the opening day of the baseball season and the Phillies won 10-4! I wasn’t there, but managed to catch most of it on TV, including the grand slam by Rhys Hoskins. So in honor of baseball and Poetry Friday, here’s a found poem from the words of Mike Sielski whose article appeared on the front page of the Philadelphia Inquirer this morning.
pomp and pageantry
of sights and scenes and sounds
an eerie silence
the crowd inhales
holds their breath
collective disapproval for the intentional walk
a 96-mph fastball rockets into the left-field seats
the most joyous seconds
of the most enjoyable day
