Tennis Prayer


With the certainty
of the sunrise
may the ball rise
above me
waiting to be placed

May the flight
of the sphere
with its cosmic grace
be a perfect trajectory
space and time

So, as I turn
agile and angled
I let fly

My heart sings
as the sphere soars
higher and higher
only to come down
to an invitation
to sweep wide
an earthly motion
controlled power
like a stone on water

May my racquet be my friend 
may the ball travel wherever I wish
may the net serve as a gentle reminder 
may I have confidence in myself
may I respect my opponent 

May this game bring joy
to me
to those I love
in this…
our interstellar world
