how far away

What once was is again.
For a moment
the final seconds before
a ball
bearing into left field
glove out stretched
to touch
elation as the ball
nestles into leather
that moment is back.
what felt to be lost
is found
the ball
arching into the glove
the hand reaching in
showing the crowd the ball.
it is
ball nestled in glove
a feeling of success
a feeling of hope
even elation
showing the ball to the crowd.
what was
the ball nestling in the glove
but new
and the same.
And we can laugh again
eyes twinkling
looking at the crowd
looking at the ball
is it was again,
is again
will always be…
