Double Play

A careful fling
tightly wrapped in comfort-
aired with grace.

Plunging deeply
with reckless abandon
for a touch.

Caught or not? Marked
breathlessly-in exploits-
hurled through space,

to ensnare the sweet cache-
Roars arise.

Subtle motions
afterward, tell the tale-
with passion.

      Thanks. The double play is one of the most graceful sports plays. I appreciate the nudge from your poetry Wednesday post that helped me remember this one.
