Slice of Life 20: Changing Seasons


(During March, I am blogging daily as a part of the Slice of Life Story Challenge!)  Special thanks to the hosts of the Slice of Life Challenge:  StaceyTaraDanaBetsyAnna and Beth.   More Slice of Life posts can be found at  Two Writing Teachers .

              Changing Seasons

A pumpkin

Five pumpkin pushers

A net

A court

A tournament bracket

Forty minutes on the clock.

And it’s one of the “First Four”

Where the team

Has to play its way into the NCAA Tournament.

A senior

Leading scorer

Held to two points

In the first half.

Second leading scorer

In the history of the university.

Second only to his father

Must come alive

During the second half.

Down, down,

Down the floor

Basket.

Down, down,

Down the floor

Basket.

Foul.

Missed opportunities.

Swish.

Who will win?

*

Overtime

Injury

Dayton

Dry spell

No baskets

Many fouls

Dashing hopes

Winner advances to Raleigh.

                                                                  New Day Today

But wait,

Grapplers in the wings

NCAA today in Oklahoma

Winners all ten

Ready and primed

Time to shine!

A new day!

*

Hope,

Might have beens and could have beens erased,

Begin Anew!

163 days til the gridiron opens . . . .

The sports cycle continues!

Do changing sports seasons impact your lives? Or are you more interested in SPRING?
