This Earth-bound Ball

Finding a lost ball
Was the mystery of it all.

A rolling ball gives pace
To otherwise static space.

A passed ball expects reciprocation.
At the least, consideration.

The ball struck with great force
Has no other recourse.

A ball that is bending
Is an instance of time pending.

Every ball in flight
Carries hope into light.

A ball touched by many
Has a spell cast already.

A ball that is caught
Vanishes from thought.

A ball thrown with precision
Is humankind in transition.

Though we can’t save the sun
With a ball we can make it run.
