A blur of maroon
warm-ups cast
aside
like a curtain
drawing
open
show’s about to start

Golden-yellow shines
bright above
all colors in the field

He fires ferocious
Muscles as whistle
blows bombard only
his competition
gentle wind caresses bare
skin in crouch position
mind is set only on
precision
execution
excellence

Heart and soul go in;
Victory waits on the other side.
