Basketball Poetry

Basketball Dream
I dribble down the length of the court
How much I love this bouncy sport
The ball so orange, inflated so
My fingers spin it, watch it go
My heart is pumping beat by beat
The one defending moves his feet
The trap is coming, And so near
It closes in; I have no fear
With hands raised high they do contain
My teammate cuts into a lane
I pass the ball into his hands
The fans are screaming in the stands
The press breaks down; it’s man-to-man
I set the play up with my hand
We swing the ball from side to side
To force the defense nice and wide
The picks are set on the baseline
The game clock now drops down to 9
Our center steps up, sets a pick
The clock now dwindles down to 6
My man is cut off, I break free
I catch the bounce pass at my knee
Sweat falls down into my eye
My muscles burn, my tendons cry
The seconds fall, I hit the air
The tension’s mounting everywhere
We’re down by one, we can’t be beat
The fans are standing on their feet
A hand comes up to block my shot
There’s just one second on the clock
My wrist snaps forward; rim in sight
I play the last game on this night
The arc is true, the net is waiting
I see the ball slowly rotating
I fall back down onto the wood
I pray my ending shot is good
Time has stopped, oh what a fight!
Only one team wins tonight
All our hopes ride on this wish
I watch it fall and hear it goSWISH!
