It's not statistical or quantifiable,
no numbers or formulas,
only a mystery that confounds and bewilders.

This is what makes the game unpredictable,
with struggles and surprises.

It's an inexact science of the
greatest unknowns
outrageous challenges.

There are no experts,
only the lucky and unlucky.

It's a game where few discover
the miracle
to spend the rest of
time together.

I could only use words I found in a Wall Street Journal article about baseball to write this poem on love.
