A baseball player
Prepares for the game
Dreaming about fame
And making a name.

Seeing the pitcher
Starting to rock back
To deliver the ball
So he could take a whack.

Focused on the ball
As vivid as could be
Seeing every detail
And feeling carefree.

A low inside fast ball
Almost in slow motion
The hitter is composed
But full of emotion.

Meeting the ball
With perfect timing
Seeing it uplifted
In the air like lightning.

    Reblogged this on This Day With God and commented:

    This poem is about a baseball player preparing for a game. He dreams about seeing the ball clearly and hitting the ball solid. This same idea can be applied each day as we pray and plan out our day with God.
