The game basketball

it’s fast paced and high flying

five on five action


Shoes squeak on hard cuts

elbows fly inside the lane

solid screens are set


Started by a jump

players running down the floor

the ball smacks the wood


The point guard dribbles down

directing the team’s offense

his eyes scan the court


The ball flies through air

landing in a teammate’s hands

he begins to shoot


It soars through the net

the crowd screams and cheers loudly

the cycle repeats

This is a piece that I came up with while thinking about the game of basketball. Basketball has been my favorite sport and activity for as long as I can remember.
