Zig, Zag, Zen-ball


Zig, Zag, Zen-ball
©2013 Susan Noyes Anderson

Sometimes we zag instead of zig
or zig when we should zag.
We go small, meaning to go big;
slide home, but miss the bag.

It's hard to get your game on, right?...
when life throws inside curves.
But if you flinch instead of fight,
you'll lose the game to nerves.

Don't sweat each pitch that comes your way;
another's close behind.
We all take strikes, so save the day
by keeping that in mind.

Brian Miller said...

nice...i agree...in the grand scheme each pitch does not make as much difference and others will be coming....until they are not of course...smiles.

Sometimes I focus on the strikes, I'm afraid. It's good to remember that everyone does sometimes.

I have to remember that we 'all take strikes'. Sometimes I think that I'm the only one.

Rightly so, Sue! One often gets distracted or gets cold feet doing many normal chores. The idea is to persevere and improvise. Things will fall into place! Nicely!

My zig and zag are quite often reversed.

Sad, but true.

But maybe that's a good thing.

Perhaps I am missing cosmic arrows even as I do this!

Another zest-filled post from you!

You are a wonder Miss Sue!

Thanks for helping make Alphabe-Thursday such a joy to visit!
