A Swish

A Swish

Such music sounds as a ball
Falls to earth through knotted chords
And scores.
Untouched by rim or board.
The ball feels only strings
And sings:
A quiet, intoxicating sound;
A whispered affirmation of skill
To thrill.
A ball launched from fingers outstretched
Arcs across empty space
An ace
Flying through air spinning – and pausing
In glad destination
A proclamation:
Proud with rippled net
In consummated wish:
A swish.
