In my last poem many didn't understand the concept and found it difficult with the first read. So this time, I wrote a poem with the words that occurred to me. I don't know whether they can be termed as poem!
Musing on those seconds
Those moments of torment
Concerning over the fate of the game
Those last few overs, OMG!!!
Last over, Pitch changes, Changes in pace,
Tensed faces on ground and dressing room,
Glistening sweat drops in players face,
Add extra spice to the relinquishing Bile juice.
Every time he pass the wicket
Every time the other shouts out,"Howzzatt!” for an lbw,
Our hearts skip a beat, a lump in throat,
The tension keeps Piling.
The never-said prayers suddenly recalled
The heart hastens against time.
Some just close their eyes, bite nails
Unable to bear the stress.
The few final fleeting moments
Where one billion hearts hotfoot together
One billion supplications wish the same
When all of us unite despite all odds
This happens every time- be it ODI, T20, TEST matches
Every time they,no, we play
We - the Indians..
And we play cricket!!
This being a Cricketing season and me, a big Fan of cricket, wrote this so called poem. This is dedicated to a lot of people.The list is below.
- Sachin Tendulkar - Master-Blaster lasted 20 years in cricket and he is still going strong.
- Rahul Dravid - The much hyped 'WALL' who recently joined the 11,000 club and crossed Don Bradman's record.
- And the awesome bowling performance of Zaheer (Without toooo many no balls), Sreesanth (5 wicket haul in the comeback match), Dhoni (Having the guts to select Sreesanth), Bhajji and Ojha (The debutant)
- Lastly to TEAM INDIA for its brilliant performance in the second test for winning SL by an Innings and 144 runs!!
P.S : For non-cricket lovers, something else will be posted when am free. Kindly excuse me if am not visiting your blogs. The reason is my Internet browsers are messing up and am missing all my friends updates. Will start my routine follow-up's from Sunday.
