Stolen Moment

Ty Cobb Sliding into Third Base

the great
Cobb steals
third evermore
the baseline
judge blurs
focused as he is on the call
stasis forever
dynamic explosive
still that haunts
dramatic moment
that breathes
still we are
too colorized
to relive the moment that lives
meditate on it hold
still

Faced with two challenges — NaPoWriMo wanted us to write a poem of ekphrasis (I’m leaving out the medieval marginal stuff, but, you know…), and the barkeep at dVerse Poets Pub gives us the Quadrille, using the word still.

Quadrille #31
