Wondering
poetofark

I stand at the finish line
 1
As the runners come by,
 2
Some collapsing as they cross,
 3
Others raising their arms in joy,
 4
And I yell, “How does it feel?”
 5
 
 
The girl on the water skis
 6
Flies across the froth of waves,
 7
Her legs bouncing,
 8
She crosses the boat’s wake
 9
And slips into the air,
 10
And I yell, “How does it feel?”
 11
 
 
A couple dances, bodies held close,
 12
Touching faces, holding hands,
 13
Feet slowly moving to the beat
 14
Of an old love song,
 15
And I ask, “How does it feel?”
 16
 
 
The first baseman runs,
 17
Makes a leaping catch
 18
Of the bouncing ball
 19
And like a white streak
 20
Leaps to the base,
 21
“Out!”
 22
And the crowd hears me yell,
 23
“How does it feel?”
 24
 
 
A shy little girl peeks
 25
From behind her mother’s
 26
Skirt, slowly reaches out
 27
And touches the wheel
 28
Of the old man’s chair,
 29
And asks,
 30
“How does it feel?”
