Idle Bats and Balls

Written for:  Poetic Bloomings2 – July Covid-19 P.A.D. – Day 5
“Where Have You Gone, Joe Dimaggio?”
“What sport, if any, do you miss? Do you miss them at all? Do you revel in having your “Sundays” back? Present a poem of the sport you miss or wished stayed permanently away. You can even write that carefree Sunday afternoon. Just be a sport about it and write without malice, Alice! Poem On!”

Baseball makes my husband
smile. All this while,
he has grudgingly contented
himself with old broadcasts.
Not the same. Nor will it be
with an empty stadium. If
teams begin playing late
in the season, he will have
a reason to smile. So,
let’s bring baseball back.
After all, they are not
the Boys of Winter.

About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
