I love This Game


I love this lovely  game

a  game of money and fame .

a game of unbelievable shots

a game where the atmosphere is hot .


I love Fedrerer’s fantastic play

and Nadal’s show on clay.


I love Roddick ‘s  fast serve

and Murray’s wit and verve.


I love the footwork of Djokovic

and the countless  aces of karlovic.


I love Agassi ‘s   returns

and McEnroe’s ’  half- volleys.


I love Borg’s strong forehand

and Lendl’s flat backhand.


I love this exciting game

It’s got tennis as a name.

The French Open inspired me this poem.My apologies for the ladies because I focused on men’s tennis.

A Poker Game


I’m delighted to win the perfect poet award week 19.

I’d like to thank

sweet jingle for hosting and managing the Thursday poets’ rally http://jingleyanqiu.wordpress.com/

and    suzicate for nominating me to win this award .

Puffs  of  smoke rise

to a  cracked ceiling

where  a  bunch of  flies

buzz around a  lamp

dangling over seven guys

Seated at a round  table

Sweltering , sweating

Sipping a glass of  wine

eyes riveted on five  cards

Nervous but poker –faced.

Bets are instantly made,

no folding is signalled,

Time for the showdown.

Heartbeats race ,Adrenaline pump

a royal flush is revealed.

Thuds , Curses and swearing

Drown out  the winner’s cheering.

I nominate Emmanuel for the perfect poet award week 20

In that game, someone will say a word,

For instance:

8. Two men huddled secretly around a map, pointing and whispering when the door is flung open. (Me. Hey, nothing in the rules says it can only be one word. This is just what came to mind.)
