    This is a lovely poem James. Just lovely. There is an amazing connection between the images… a very restrained poem which vibrates with stored energy…

    I second Dick! This poem has an incredible sense of wabi that really brings the image to life. The article works nicely here and gives the idea of the “new ball” being a new age in societal ideals, starting with our young people. Beautifully done!
