Five Minute Friday: Catch

October 14, 2011


And a kiss is thrown

Across the room as I stand at the door

Smiling and waving goodbye.


The crack of a bat

A cheer from the stands

The outfield scrambles, mits in the air.


A small body launches

From the couch, or a chair, or a bench

Through the air into Dad’s waiting arms.


Catch the ball

Catch your breath

Catch the boys as they hurtle through life

Catch the glass before it falls

Catch the arm before he trips

Catch the heart that’s given so freely

    Oh Adelle ~ great imagery on the word Catch. I like the way you chose to put them together … almost as if I could hear the sound of a catch in between each vignette.
    Lovely! Have a great day!

    This is an absolutely perfect description of living with littles. I love the details–catching the glass before it falls or the arm as he trips. 🙂

    How clever, those words that came from the word catch! I think you changed your blog since I visited last week. Or maybe my memory is off. I tried to leave a comment last friday and had trouble. Enjoyed your post and looking around. Thanks for tweeting about my post last week.
