The stands have virtual sound, virtual hot-dogs, and the game goes on
with runners at bat, everyone on the field …
the stands are full
the lingering smell
of stale hot dogs
and forgotten cheers
sends a forkball
down the line
right fielder leaps
and a spectral
home run curls
over the stands
To Bethlehem: ‘This little book is delightful, full of … poems on this timeless subject. … the most fun is the little prose vignettes of the common people in the Christ-child story. The slave who looks after the wise men’s camels, or the overworked maid at the inn who has to fetch water for the birth, and many more. A lovely gift for the reader on your Christmas list!’ Rosalind Adams. Available from Amazon and Kindle.
Virtual baseball : ) and that’s where imaginations comes in.
Thank you for starting mine this afternoon, Joanna
