Exercise 010803

The silence is dead

and once more the

bleachers are being swept

clean. And the fervour

is gathering as fans

bereft of their annual

fix clamour and grumble.

And the players themselves

are chomping at their

high-priced bits. All

that sweat and pain,

and not a few

tears, has now led

up to this time

where bodies and egos

are put on the

line for that pinnacle,

that ultimate, that glory.

And like all conquerors

that moment is fleeting

while the memory lasts

forever, a lifetime of

joys and sorrows and

maybe even regrets. And

season’s end will once

more herald another silence

until the next clarion.

I enjoy solo wargaming and writing. The first caters to the boy that never grew up; the latter satisfies a deep desire to communicate. Cheers.
